Dictionaries :: Give

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1325 Greek: didomi

Give:

"to give," is used with various meanings according to the context; it is said, e.g., of seed "yielding fruit," Mar 4:7,8; of "giving" (i.e., exercising) diligence, Luk 12:58; of "giving" lots, Act 1:26, RV (AV, "gave forth"); of "rendering" vengeance, 2Th 1:8; of "striking or smiting" Christ, Jhn 18:22 (lit., "gave a blow") and Jhn 19:3 (lit., "they gave Him blows"); of "putting" a ring on the hand, Luk 15:22; of Paul's "adventuring" himself into a place, Act 19:31. (In Rev 17:13 some mss. have diadidomi, "to divide").
See ADVENTURE, BESTOW, No. 1, COMMIT, Note (1), DELIVER, GRANT, MAKE, MINISTER, OFFER, PUT, SET, SHEW, SUFFER, TAKE, UTTER, YIELD.

Note: In the following the RV gives the correct rendering: Act 7:25, "was giving them deliverance" (AV, "would deliver them"); Act 10:40, "gave Him to be made manifest" (AV, "shewed Him openly"); Rev 13:14, 15, "it was given him" (AV, "he had power").

2 Strong's Number: g591 Greek: apodidomi

Give:

signifies "to give up or back, to restore, return, render what is due, to pay, give an account" (apo, "back," and No. 1), e.g., of an account. Mat 5:26; 12:36; Luk 16:2; Act 19:40; Hbr 13:17; 1Pe 4:5; of wages, etc., e.g., Mat 18:25-34; 20:8; of conjugal duty, 1Cr 7:3; of a witness, Act 4:33; frequently of recompensing or rewarding, 1Ti 5:4; 2Ti 4:8, 14; 1Pe 3:9; Rev 18:6; 22:12. In the Middle Voice it is used of "giving" up what is one's own; hence, "to sell," Act 5:8; 7:9; Hbr 12:16.
See DELIVER.

3 Strong's Number: g1929 Greek: epididomi

Give:

signifies

(a) "to give by handing, to hand" (epi, "over"), e.g., Mat 7:9, 10; Luk 4:17; 24:30, here of the Lord's act in "handing" the broken loaf to the two at Emmaus, an act which was the means of the revelation of Himself as the crucified and risen Lord; the simple verb, No. 1, is used of His "handing" the bread at the institution of the Lord's Supper, Mat 26:26; Mar 14:22; Luk 22:19; this meaning of the verb epididomi is found also in Act 15:30, "they delivered;"

(b) "to give in, give way," Act 27:15, RV, "we gave way to it."
See DELIVER.

4 Strong's Number: g3330 Greek: metadidomi

Give:

"to give a share of, impart" (meta, "with"), as distinct from "giving." The Apostle Paul speaks of "sharing" some spiritual gift with Christians at Rome, Rom 1:11, "that I may impart," and exhorts those who minister in things temporal, to do so as "sharing," and that generously, Rom 12:8, "he that giveth;" so in Eph 4:28; Luk 3:11, in 1Th 2:8 he speaks of himself and his fellow missionaries as having been well pleased to impart to the converts both God's Gospel and their own souls (i.e., so "sharing" those with them as to spend themselves and spend out their lives for them).
See IMPART.

5 Strong's Number: g3860 Greek: paradidomi

Give:

"to give or hand over," is said of "giving" up the ghost, Jhn 19:30; of "giving" persons up to evil, Act 7:42; Rom 1:24, 26; of "giving" one's body to be burned, 1Cr 13:3; of Christ's "giving" Himself up to death, Gal 2:20; Eph 5:2, 25.
See BETRAY, COMMIT, DELIVER.

6 Strong's Number: g4272 Greek: prodidomi

Give:

"to give before, or first" (pro, "before"), is found in Rom 11:35.

7 Strong's Number: g5483 Greek: charizomai

Give:

primarily denotes "to show favor or kindness," as in Gal 3:18, RV, "hath granted" (AV, "gave"); then, to "give" freely, bestow graciously; in this sense it is used almost entirely of that which is "given" by God, Act 27:24, "God hath granted thee all them that sail with thee" (RV); in Rom 8:32, "shall... freely give;" 1Cr 2:12, "are freely given;" Phl 1:29, "it hath been granted" (said of believing on Christ and suffering for Him); Phl 2:9, "hath given" (said of the name of Jesus as "given" by God); Phm 1:22, "I shall be granted unto you" (RV). In Luk 7:21, it is said in regard to the blind, upon whom Christ "bestowed" sight (RV). The only exceptions, in this sense of the word, as to Divinely imparted "gifts," are Act 3:14, of the "granting" of Barabbas by Pilate to the Jews, and Act 25:11, 16, of the "giving" up of a prisoner to his accusers or to execution.
See DELIVER, FORGIVE, GRANT.

8 Strong's Number: g3930 Greek: parecho

Give:

in the Active Voice, signifies "to afford, furnish, provide, supply" (lit., "to hold out or towards;" para, "near," echo, "to hold"); it is translated "hath given" in Act 17:31; "giveth" in 1Ti 6:17 (in the sense of affording); in Col 4:1, RV, "render" (AV, "give").
See BRING, DO, KEEP, MINISTER, OFFER, RENDER, SHEW, TROUBLE.

9 Strong's Number: g143 Greek: doreo

Give:

akin to No. 1, and used in the Middle Voice, "to bestow, make a gift of," is translated in the RV by the verb "to grant," instead of the AV, "to give," Mar 15:45; 2Pe 1:3, 4.
See GRANT.

10 Strong's Number: g632 Greek: aponemo

Give:

"to assign, apportion" (apo, "away," nemo, "to distribute"), is rendered "giving" in 1Pe 3:7, of giving honor to the wife. In the papyri writings it is said of a prefect who "gives" to all their dues. In the Sept., Deu 4:19.

11 Strong's Number: g4160 Greek: poieo

Give:

"to do," is used in Jud 1:3 of "giving" diligence (the Middle Voice indicating Jude's especial interest in his task).

12 Strong's Number: g2702 Greek: kataphero

Give:

"to bring down or against" (kata, "down"), said of an accusation in Act 25:7 (in the best mss.), and of being "borne down" with sleep, Act 20:9, RV, is used of casting a ballot or "giving" a vote in Act 26:10.
See FALL, Note (8), SINK.

13 Strong's Number: g4369 Greek: prostithemi

Give:

lit., "to put in addition" (pros, "to," tithemi, "to put"), "to give more," is translated "shall more be given," in Mar 4:24 (Passive Voice).
See ADD.

14 Strong's Number: g4980 Greek: scholazo

Give:

"to be at leisure," hence, "to have time or opportunity for, to be occupied in," is said of "giving" oneself to prayer, 1 Cor. 7:5; of an "empty" house, "lying vacant," Mat 12:44.

15 Strong's Number: g3004 Greek: lego

Give:

"to say," is rendered "giving out," of the self-advertisement of Simon Magus, Act 8:9.
See SAY.

16 Strong's Number: g4337 Greek: prosecho

Give:

"to turn one's mind to, attend to," is used of "giving" oneself up to, 1Ti 3:8 (to wine); of "giving" heed to, Act 8:6, 10, 11 (RV); 16:14 (RV); 1Ti 1:4; 4:1, 13 (RV); Tts 1:14; Hbr 2:1.
See ATTEND.
