Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4453 Greek: poleo


"to exchange or barter, to sell," is used in the latter sense in the NT, six times in Matthew, three in Mark, six in Luke; in John only in connection with the cleansing of the Temple by the Lord, 2:14, 16; in Acts only in connection with the disposing of property for distribution among the community of believers, 4:34, 37; 5:1; elsewhere, 1Cr 10:25; Rev 13:17.

2 Strong's Number: g4097 Greek: piprasko


from an earlier form, perao, "to carry across the sea for the purpose of selling or to export," is used

(a) literally, Mat 13:46; 18:25; 26:9; Mar 14:5; Jhn 12:5; Act 2:45; 4:34; 5:4;

(b) metaphorically, Rom 7:14, "sold under sin," i.e., as fully under the domination of sin as a slave is under his master; the statement evinces an utter dissatisfaction with such a condition; it expresses, not the condemnation of the unregenerate state, but the evil of bondage to a corrupt nature, involving the futility of making use of the Law as a means of deliverance.

3 Strong's Number: g591 Greek: apodidomi


"to give up or back," also means, in the Middle Voice, "to give up of one's own will;" hence, "to sell;" it is so used in Peter's question to Sapphira as to "selling" the land, Act 5:8; of the act of Joseph's brothers, Act 7:9; of Esau's act in "selling" his birthright, Hbr 12:16.

Note: In Jam 4:13, AV, emporeuomai, "to trade" (RV), is rendered "buy and sell."

Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
