Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g1096 Greek: ginomai

Made (Be):

"to become," is sometimes translated by the Passive Voice of the verb to make, e.g., Mat 9:16; Jhn 1:3 (three times), 10; 8:33; Rom 11:9; 1Cr 1:30; 3:13; 4:9, 13; Eph 2:13; 3:7; Phl 2:7 (but RV marg., "becoming"); Col 1:23, 25; Hbr 5:5; 6:4; 7:12, 16, 21, 26; 11:3; Jam 3:9; 1Pe 2:7. In many places the RV translates otherwise, and chiefly by the verb to become, e.g., Mat 25:6, "there is;" Mat 27:24, "was arising;" Jhn 1:14, "became;" Jhn 2:9, "become;" Rom 1:3, "born;" Rom 2:25, "is become;" Rom 10:20, "became;" Gal 3:13, "having become;" Gal 4:4, "born" (twice); Hbr 3:14, "are become;" Hbr 7:22, "hath... become."

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g2749 Greek: keimai

Made (Be):

"to lie," is sometimes used as the Passive Voice of tithemi, "to put;" it is translated "is (not) made" in 1Ti 1:9, of the Law, where a suitable rendering would be "is (not) enacted."


(1) In 2Pe 2:12, AV, the verb genao, "to beget," in the Passive Voice, to be born, is translated "made" (RV, "born").

(2) In Luk 3:5, AV (3rd statement), the future tense of eimi, "to be," is translated "shall be made" (RV, "shall become"); in the next sentence there is nothing in the original representing "shall be made."

(3) In Act 16:13, AV, the infinitive mood of eimi, "to be," is translated "to be made" (of prayer), RV, "there was (a place of prayer)."

(4) For the translation of words in which the Eng. "made" forms a part of another verb, see under those words, e.g., CONFESSION, KNOWN, LIKE, LOW, PAYMENT, RICH, SUBJECT.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g4161 Greek: poiema

Made (Be):

whence Eng., "poem," denotes "that which is made" (from poieo, "to do, make"), Rom 1:20, "the things that are made;" Eph 2:10, "(His) workmanship."
