Dictionaries :: Lead, Led

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g71 Greek: ago

Lead, Led:

"to bear, bring, carry, lead," is translated by the verb "to lead," e.g., in Mar 13:11; Luk 4:1; 4:9, RV; Luk 4:29; 22:54; 23:1, AV only; Luk 23:32; Jhn 18:28 (present tense, RV); Act 8:32; metaphorically in Rom 2:4, of the goodness of God; Rom 8:14; Gal 5:18, of the Spirit of God; 1Cr 12:2, of the powers of darkness instigating to idolatry; 2Ti 3:6, of divers lusts (in some mss., aichmaloteuo).
