Remove, Removing:

"to pass over from one place to another" (meta, implying "change," and baino, "to go"), is translated "to remove" in Mat 17:20 (twice).

is used transitively in the sense of causing "to remove," in Act 13:22, of the "removing" of King Saul, by bringing about his death; in 1Cr 13:2, of "removing" mountains.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g3346 Greek: metatithemi

Remove, Removing:

"to remove a person or thing from one place to another" (meta, implying "change," tithemi, "to put"), e.g., Act 7:16, "were carried over," signifies, in the Middle Voice, "to change oneself," and is so used in Gal 1:6 "(I marvel that) ye are... removing," RV (not as AV, "removed"); the present tense suggests that the defection of the Galatians from the truth was not yet complete and would continue unless they changed their views.
