Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1839 Greek: existemi

Beside Oneself (To Be):

primarily and lit. means "to put out of position, displace;" hence,

(a) "to amaze," Luk 24:22 (for AV, "make... astonished"); Act 8:9,11 (AV, "bewitched"); or "to be amazed, astounded," Mat 12:23; Mar 6:51;

(b) "to be out of one's mind, to be beside oneself," Mar 3:21; 2Cr 5:13, in the latter of which it is contrasted with sophroneo, "to be of a sound mind, sober."

2 Strong's Number: g3105 Greek: mainomai

Beside Oneself (To Be):

"to be mad, to rave," is said of one who so speaks that he appears to be out of his mind, Act 26:24, translated "thou art beside thyself," AV; RV, "thou art mad." In Acts 26:25; Jhn 10:20; Act 12:15; 1Cr 14:23, both Versions use the verb to be mad.
See MAD.

Note: For paraphroneo, 2Cr 11:23, RV, see FOOL, B, No. 2.

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.
