Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4531 Greek: saleuo


"to agitate, shake," primarily of the action of stormy winds, waves, etc., is used

(a) literally, of a reed, Mat 11:7; Luk 7:24; a vessel, "shaken" in filling, Luk 6:38; a building, Luk 6:48; Act 4:31; 16:26; the natural forces of the heavens and heavenly bodies, Mat 24:29; Mar 13:25; Luk 21:26; the earth, Hbr 12:26, "shook;"

(b) metaphorically,

(1) of "shaking" so as to make insecure, Hbr 12:27 (twice);

(2) of casting down from a sense of security, Act 2:25, "I should (not) be moved;"

(3) to stir up (a crowd), Act 17:13;

(4) to unsettle, 2Th 2:2, "(to the end that) ye be not (quickly) shaken (from your mind)," i.e., from their settled conviction and the purpose of heart begotten by it, as to the return of Christ before the Day of the Lord begins; the metaphor may be taken from the loosening of a ship from its moorings by a storm.
