(b) of the general activity of the human being, Act 17:28;

(d) figuratively, of exciting, stirring up feelings and passions, Act 21:30 (Passive Voice); Act 24:5, "a mover;"

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g3334 Greek: metakineo

Move, Moved, Mover, Moving, Unmovable:

in the Active Voice, "to move something away" (not in the NT; in the Sept., e.g., Deu 19:14; Isa 54:10); in the Middle Voice, "to remove oneself, shift" translated in the Passive in Col 1:23, "be... not moved away (from the hope of the gospel)."

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g4579 Greek: seio

Move, Moved, Mover, Moving, Unmovable:

"to shake, move to and fro," usually of violent concussion (Eng., "seismic," "seismograph," "seismology"), is said

(b) of a local convulsion of the earth, at the death of Christ, Mat 27:51, "did quake;"

(c) of a fig tree, Rev 6:13;

(d) metaphorically, to stir up with fear or some other emotion, Mat 21:10, of the people of a city; Mat 28:4, of the keepers or watchers, at the Lord's tomb, RV, "did quake" (AV, "did shake").

A-4 Verb Strong's Number: g4531 Greek: saleuo

Move, Moved, Mover, Moving, Unmovable:

"to shake," properly of the action of stormy wind, then, "to render insecure, stir up," is rendered "I should (not) be moved" in Act 2:25, in the sense of being cast down or shaken from a sense of security and happiness, said of Christ, in a quotation from Psa 16:8.
See SHAKE, STIR (up).

A-5 Verb Strong's Number: g4525 Greek: saino

Move, Moved, Mover, Moving, Unmovable:

properly, of dogs, "to wag the tail, fawn;" hence, metaphorically of persons, "to disturb, disquiet," 1Th 3:3, Passive Voice, "(that no man) be moved (by these afflictions)." Some have suggested the primary meaning, "to be wheedled, befooled, by pleasing utterances;" but Greek interpreters regard it as synonymous with No. 3, or with tarasso, "to disturb," and this is confirmed by the contrast with "establish" in 1Th 3:2, and "stand fast" in 1Th 3:8. A variant reading gives the verb siainesthai, "to be disheartened, unnerved."

A-6 Verb Strong's Number: g5342 Greek: phero

Move, Moved, Mover, Moving, Unmovable:

"to bear, carry," is rendered "being moved" in 2Pe 1:21, signifying that they were "borne along," or impelled, by the Holy Spirit's power, not acting according to their own wills, or simply expressing their own thoughts, but expressing the mind of God in words provided and ministered by Him.


(1) In Mar 15:11, AV, anaseio, "to shake to and fro, stir up," is translated "moved" (RV, "stirred up," as in Luk 23:5, AV and RV).

(2) In Act 20:24 some mss. have a phrase translated "none of these things move me." The text for which there is most support gives the rendering "but I hold not my life of any account, as dear unto myself." Field suggests a reading, the translation of which is, "neither make I account of anything, nor think my life dear unto myself."

(3) In 1Cr 15:34, for the more literal AV, "I speak this to your shame," the RV has "I speak this to move you to shame."

(4) For "moved with godly fear" see FEAR, D, No. 2.
