Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1210 Greek: deo

Bind, Binding (See Also Bound):

"to bind," is used

(a) literally, of any sort of "binding," e.g., Act 22:5; 24:27,

(b) figuratively, of the Word of God, as not being "bound," 2Ti 2:9, i.e., its ministry, course and efficacy were not hindered by the bonds and imprisonment suffered by the Apostle. A woman who was bent together, had been "bound" by Satan through the work of a demon, Luk 13:16. Paul speaks of himself, in Act 20:22, as being "bound in the spirit," i.e., compelled by his convictions, under the constraining power of the Spirit of God, to go to Jerusalem. A wife is said to be "bound" to her husband, Rom 7:2; 1Cr 7:39; and the husband to the wife, 1Cr 7:27. The Lord's words to the Apostle Peter in Mat 16:19, as to "binding," and to all the disciples in Mat 18:18, signify, in the former case, that the Apostle, by his ministry of the Word of Life, would keep unbelievers outside the kingdom of God, and admit those who believed. So with regard to Mat 18:18, including the exercise of disciplinary measures in the sphere of the local church; the application of the Rabbinical sense of forbidding is questionable.
See BOND, KNIT, Note, TIE.
