Dictionaries :: Make

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4160 Greek: poieo


"to do, to make," is used in the latter sense

(a) of constructing or producing anything, of the creative acts of God, e.g., Mat 19:4 (2nd part); Act 17:24; of the acts of human beings, e.g., Mat 17:4; Act 9:39;

(b) with nouns denoting a state or condition, to be the author of, to cause, e.g., peace, Eph 2:15; Jam 3:18; stumbling blocks, Rom 16:17;

(c) with nouns involving the idea of action (or of something accomplished by action), so as to express the idea of the verb more forcibly (the Middle Voice is commonly used in this respect, suggesting the action as being of special interest to the doer); for the Active Voice see, e.g., Mar 2:23, of "making" one's way, where the idea is not that the disciples "made" a path through the standing corn, but simply that they went, the phrase being equivalent to going, "(they began) as they went (to pluck the ears);" other instances of the Active are Rev 13:13, 14; 16:14; 19:20; for the Middle Voice (the dynamic or subjective Middle), see, e.g., Jhn 14:23, "will make our abode;" in Act 20:24, "none of these things move me," lit., "I make account of none of these things;" Act 25:17, "I made no delay," RV; Rom 15:26; Eph 4:16; Hbr 1:2; 2Pe 1:10;

(d) to "make" ready or prepare, e.g., a dinner, Luk 14:12; a supper, Jhn 12:2;

(e) to acquire, provide a thing for oneself, Mat 25:16; Luk 19:18;

(f) to render or "make" one or oneself anything, or cause a person or thing to become something, e.g., Mat 4:19; 12:16, "make (Him known);" Jhn 5:11, 15, to "make" whole; Jhn 16:2, lit., "they shall make (you put out of the synagogue);" Eph 2:14; Hbr 1:7; to change one thing into another, Mat 21:13; Jhn 2:16; 4:46; 1Cr 6:15;

(g) to constitute one anything, e.g., Act 2:36;

(h) to declare one or oneself anything, Jhn 5:18, "making (Himself equal with God);" Jhn 8:53; 10:33; 19:7, 12; 1Jo 1:10; 5:10;

(i) to "make" one do a thing, e.g., Luk 5:34; Jhn 6:10; Rev 3:9.
See DO, No. 1, and other renderings there.

"to put," is used in the same way as No. 1 (f), Mat 22:44; Mar 12:36; Luk 20:43; Act 2:35; 1Cr 9:18 (of making the Gospel without charge); Hbr 1:13; 10:13; 2Pe 2:6; as No. 1 (g), Act 20:28; Rom 4:17.
See APPOINT, No. 3.

3 Strong's Number: g1303 Greek: diatithemi


"to covenant," is rendered "I will make" (the noun diatheke, "a covenant," being expressed additionally), in the Middle Voice, in Act 3:25; Hbr 8:10; 10:16, lit., "I will covenant" (see RV, marg.).
See APPOINT, No. 4.

4 Strong's Number: g2525 Greek: kathistemi


"to set down, set in order, appoint," is used in the same way as No. 1 (g) in Act 7:10, 27, 35; Hbr 7:28, AV (RV, "appointeth"); as No. 1 (f) in Rom 5:19 (twice).
See APPOINT, No. 2.

5 Strong's Number: g4921 Greek: sunistemi


"to commend, prove, establish," is used in Gal 2:18, much as in No. 1 (g), "I make myself (a transgressor)," i.e., "I constitute (or prove) myself, etc."
See APPROVE, No. 2.

6 Strong's Number: g1325 Greek: didomi


"to give," is used in 2Th 3:9 in much the same sense as No. 1 (g), "to make (ourselves an ensample)"; in Rev 3:9 (1st part), RV, "I will give," the sense is virtually the same as poieo in the 2nd part of the verse, see No. 1 (i).

7 Strong's Number: g2005 Greek: epiteleo

11 Strong's Number: g2722 Greek: katecho


"to hold fast" (kata, "down," intensive, echo, "to hold"), is used of "making" for a place, in Act 27:40, RV, "they made for" (AV, "they made toward").

12 Strong's Number: g4294 Greek: prokatartizo


"to render fit ('fitted'; artos, 'a joint') beforehand," is used in 2Cr 9:5, "to make up beforehand."


(1) In Hbr 9:2, AV, kataskeuazo, "to prepare," is translated "made" (RV, "prepared").

(2) In Eph 2:15, AV, ktizo, "to create," is translated "make" (RV, "create").

(3) In Act 26:16, AV, procheirizo, "to determine, choose," is translated "make" (RV, "appoint").

(4) In Gal 3:16, AV, ero, "to speak," is translated "were... made" (RV, "were... spoken").

(5) In Luk 14:31, AV, sumballo, "to meet with," in hostile sense, is rendered in combination with the phrase eis polemon, "in war," "to make war"; RV, "to encounter (in war)."

(6) In Rom 14:19 "the things which make for peace" is, lit., "the things of peace."

(7) In Act 22:1 the verb "I make" represents no word in the original, lit., "hear now my defense unto you."

(8) The Eng. verb "to make" forms with many other verbs a rendering of single Greek verbs which are given under the respective headings.

(9) For "made," Luk 19:16, RV, see GAIN, Note (1).
