Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g550 Greek: apeipon


lit., "to tell from" (apo, "from," eipon, an aorist form used to supply parts of lego, "to say"), signifies "to renounce," 2Cr 4:2 (Middle Voice), of disowning "the hidden things of shame." In the Sept. of 1Ki 11:2 it signifies "to forbid," a meaning found in the papyri. The meaning "to renounce" may therefore carry with it the thought of forbidding the approach of the things disowned.

2 Strong's Number: g657 Greek: apotasso


"to set apart, to appoint," a meaning found in the papyri (apo, "from", tasso, "to arrange"), is used in the Middle Voice in the sense either of "taking leave of," e.g., Act 18:18, or "forsaking," Luk 14:33, RV, "renounceth" (AV "forsaketh").


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. 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.
