Dictionaries :: Appoint, Appointed

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g2476 Greek: histemi

Appoint, Appointed:

"to make to stand," means "to appoint," in Act 17:31, of the day in which God will judge the world by Christ. In Act 1:23, with reference to Joseph and Barnabas, the RV has "put forward;" for these were not both "appointed" in the accepted sense of the term, but simply singled out, in order that it might be made known which of them the Lord had chosen.
See ABIDE, No. 10.

2 Strong's Number: g2525 Greek: kathistemi

Appoint, Appointed:

a strengthened form of No. 1, usually signifies "to appoint a person to a position." In this sense the verb is often translated "to make" or "to set," in appointing a person to a place of authority, e.g., a servant over a household, Mat 24:45, 47; 25:21, 23; Luk 12:42, 44; a judge, Luk 12:14; Act 7:27, 35; a governor, Act 7:10; man by God over the work of His hands, Hbr 2:7. It is rendered "appoint," with reference to the so-called seven deacons in Act 6:3. The RV translates it by "appoint" in Tts 1:5, instead of "ordain," of the elders whom Titus was to "appoint" in every city in Crete. Not a formal ecclesiastical ordination is in view, but the "appointment," for the recognition of the churches, of those who had already been raised up and qualified by the Holy Spirit, and had given evidence of this in their life and service (see No. 11). It is used of the priests of old, Hbr 5:1; 7:28; 8:3 (RV, "appointed").
See CONDUCT, MAKE, ORDAIN, SET.

3 Strong's Number: g5087 Greek: tithemi

Appoint, Appointed:

"to put," is used of "appointment" to any form of service. Christ used it of His followers, Jhn 15:16 (RV, "appointed" for AV, "ordained"). "I set you" would be more in keeping with the metaphor of grafting. The verb is used by Paul of his service in the ministry of the Gospel, 1Ti 1:12 (RV, "appointing" for "putting"); 1Ti 2:7 (RV, "appointed" for "ordained"); and 2Ti 1:11 (RV, "appointing" for "putting"); of the overseers, or bishops, in the local church at Ephesus, as those "appointed" by the Holy Ghost, to tend the church of God, Act 20:28 ("hath made"); of the Son of God, as appointed Heir of all things, Hbr 1:2. It is also used of "appointment" to punishment, as of the unfaithful servant, Mat 24:51; Luk 12:46; of unbelieving Israel, 1Pe 2:8. Cp. 2Pe 2:6.
See BOW, COMMIT, CONCEIVE, LAY, MAKE, ORDAIN, PURPOSE, PUT, SET, SINK.

Note: Akin to tithemi is the latter part of the noun prothesmia, Gal 4:2, of a term or period "appointed."

4 Strong's Number: g1303 Greek: diatithemi

Appoint, Appointed:

a strengthened form of No. 3 (dia, "through," intensive), is used in the Middle Voice only. The Lord used it of His disciples with reference to the kingdom which is to be theirs hereafter, and of Himself in the same respect, as that which has been "appointed" for Him by His Father, Luk 22:29. For its use in connection with a covenant, see MAKE and TESTATOR.

5 Strong's Number: g5021 Greek: tasso

Appoint, Appointed:

"to place in order, arrange," signifies "to appoint," e.g., of the place where Christ had "appointed" a meeting with His disciples after His resurrection, Mat 28:16; of positions of military and civil authority over others, whether "appointed" by men, Luk 7:8, or by God, Rom 13:1, "ordained." It is said of those who, having believed the Gospel, "were ordained to eternal life," Act 13:48. The house of Stephanas at Corinth had "set themselves" to the ministry of the saints (AV, "addicted"), 1Cr 16:15. Other instances of the arranging of special details occur in Act 15:2; 22:10; 28:23.
See DETERMINE, ORDAIN, SET.

6 Strong's Number: g1299 Greek: diatasso

Appoint, Appointed:

a strengthened form of No. 5 (dia, "through," intensive), frequently denotes "to arrange, appoint, prescribe," e.g., of what was "appointed" for tax collectors to collect, Luk 3:13; of the tabernacle, as "appointed" by God for Moses to make, Act 7:44; of the arrangements "appointed" by Paul with regard to himself and his travelling companions, Act 20:13; of what the Apostle "ordained" in all the churches in regard to marital conditions, 1Cr 7:17; of what the Lord "ordained" in regard to the support of those who proclaimed the Gospel, 1Cr 9:14; of the Law as Divinely "ordained," or administered, through angels, by Moses, Gal 3:19. In Tts 1:5, AV, "had appointed thee," the sense is rather that of commanding, RV, "gave thee charge."
See COMMAND, No. 1, ORDAIN, ORDER.

7 Strong's Number: g4929 Greek: suntasso

Appoint, Appointed:

sun, "with," and No. 5, lit., "to arrange together with," hence "to appoint, prescribe," is used twice, in Mat 26:19 of what the Lord "appointed" for His disciples, and in Mat 27:10, in a quotation concerning the price of the potter's field.

8 Strong's Number: g4384 Greek: protasso

Appoint, Appointed:

pro, "before," and No. 5, "to appoint before," is used in Act 17:26 (RV, "appointed"), of the seasons arranged by God for nations, and the bounds of their habitation.

9 Strong's Number: g2749 Greek: keimai

Appoint, Appointed:

"to lie," is used in 1Th 3:3 of the "appointment" of affliction for faithful believers. It is rendered "set" in Luk 2:34 and Phl 1:16, RV, where the sense is the same. The verb is a perfect tense, used for the perfect Passive of tithemi, "to place," "I have been placed," i.e., "I lie."
See LAY, LIE, MADE (be), SET.

10 Strong's Number: g606 Greek: apokeimai

Appoint, Appointed:

apo, "from," and No. 9, signifies "to be laid, reserved," Luk 19:20; Col 1:5; 2Ti 4:8; "appointed," in Hbr 9:27, where it is said of death and the judgement following (RV, marg., "laid up").
See LAY.

11 Strong's Number: g5500 Greek: cheirotoneo

Appoint, Appointed:

primarily used of voting in the Athenian legislative assembly and meaning "to stretch forth the hands" (cheir, "the hand," teino, "to stretch"), is not to be taken in its literal sense; it could not be so taken in its compound procheirotoneo, "to choose before," since it is said of God, Act 10:41. Cheirotoneo is said of "the appointment" of elders by apostolic missionaries in the various churches which they revisited, Act 14:23, RV, "had appointed," i.e., by the recognition of those who had been manifesting themselves as gifted of God to discharge the functions of elders (see No. 2). It is also said of those who were "appointed" (not by voting, but with general approbation) by the churches in Greece to accompany the Apostle in conveying their gifts to the poor saints in Judea, 2Cr 8:19.
See CHOOSE, ORDAIN.

12 Strong's Number: g4400 Greek: procheirizo

Appoint, Appointed:

from procheiros, "at hand," signifies

(a) "to deliver up, appoint," Act 3:20 (RV, "appointed");

(b) in the Middle Voice, "to take into one's hand, to determine, appoint beforehand," translated "appointed" in Act 22:14, RV (for AV, "hath chosen"), and "to appoint" in 26:16 (for AV, "to make").

13 Strong's Number: g3724 Greek: horizo

Appoint, Appointed:

(Eng., "horizon"), lit., "to mark by a limit," hence, "to determine, ordain," is used of Christ as ordained of God to be a judge of the living and the dead, Act 17:31; of His being "marked out" as the Son of God, Rom 1:4; of Divinely appointed seasons, Act 17:26, "having determined."
See DEFINE.

14 Strong's Number: g322 Greek: anadeiknumi

Appoint, Appointed:

lit., "to show up, to show clearly," also signifies "to appoint to a position or a service;" it is used in this sense of the 70 disciples, Luk 10:1; for the meaning "show," see Act 1:24.

15 Strong's Number: g4160 Greek: poieo

Appoint, Appointed:

"to do, to make," is rendered "appointed" in Hbr 3:2, of Christ. For Mar 3:14, RV, see ORDAIN, Note (2).

Note: Epithanatios, "appointed to death," doomed to it by condemnation, 1Cr 4:9, AV, is corrected to "doomed to death" in the RV (epi, "for," thanatos, "death").
