Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1453 Greek: egeiro

Raise (Up):

for the various meanings of which see ARISE, No. 3, is used

(a) of "raising" the dead, Active and Passive Voices, e.g., of the resurrection of Christ, Mat 16:21; 17:23; 20:19, RV; 26:32, RV, "(after) I am raised up" (AV, "... risen again"); Luk 9:22; 20:37; Jhn 2:19; Act 3:15; 4:10 [not 5:30, see (c) below]; 10:40 [not 13:23 in the best texts, see (c) below]; 13:30, 37; Rom 4:24, 25; 6:4, 9; 7:4; 8:11 (twice); 8:34, RV; 10:9; 1Cr 6:14 (1st part); 15:13, 14, RV; 15:15 (twice), 16, 17; 15:20, RV; 2Cr 4:14; Gal 1:1; Eph 1:20; Col 2:12; 1Th 1:10; 1Pe 1:21; in 2Ti 2:8, RV, "risen;"

(b) of the resurrection of human beings, Mat 10:8; 11:5; Mat 27:52, RV (AV, "arose"); Mar 12:26, RV; Luk 7:22; Jhn 5:21; 12:1, 9, 17; Act 26:8; 1Cr 15:29, 32, RV; 15:35, 42, 43 (twice), 44, 52; 2Cr 1:9; 4:14; Hbr 11:19;

(c) of "raising" up a person to occupy a place in the midst of a people, said of Christ, Act 5:30; in Act 13:23, AV only (the best texts have ago, to bring, RV, "hath... brought"); of David, Act 13:22 (for ver. 33 see No. 2);

(d) metaphorically, of a horn of salvation, Luk 1:69;

(e) of children, from stones, by creative power, Luk 3:8;

(f) of the Temple, as the Jews thought, Jhn 2:20, RV, "wilt thou raise (it) up" (AV, "rear");

(g) of "lifting" up a person, from physical infirmity, Mar 1:31, RV, "raised... up" (AV, "lifted"); so Mar 9:27; Act 3:7; 10:26, RV (AV, "took"); Jam 5:15, "shall raise... up;"

(h) metaphorically, of "raising" up affliction, Phl 1:17, RV (in the best texts; the AV, ver. 16, following those which have epiphero, has "to add").
See AWAKE, No. 1.

2 Strong's Number: g450 Greek: anistemi

Raise (Up):

for the various applications of which see ARISE, No. 1, is translated "to raise or raise up,"

(a) of the resurrection of the dead by Christ, Jhn 6:39, 40, 44, 54;

(b) of the resurrection of Christ from the dead, Act 2:24 (for ver. 30 see RV, kathizo, "to set," as in the best texts); 2:32; 13:34, see (c) below; Act 17:31;

(c) of "raising" up a person to occupy a place in the midst of a nation, said of Christ, Act 3:26; 7:37; 13:33, RV, "raised up Jesus," not here by resurrection from the dead, as the superfluous "again" of the AV would suggest; this is confirmed by the latter part of the verse, which explains the "raising" up as being by way of His incarnation, and by the contrast in ver. 34, where stress is laid upon His being "raised" from the dead, the same verb being used:

(d) of "raising" up seed, Mat 22:24;

(e) of being "raised" from natural sleep, Mat 1:24, AV, "being raised" (RV, "arose"); here some mss. have diegeiro, "to arouse completely;" see ARISE, No. 4.

Note: For the contrast between No. 1 and No. 2 see ARISE, No. 3 (parag. 2).

3 Strong's Number: g1825 Greek: exegeiro

Raise (Up):

ek, "out of," and No. 1, is used

(a) of the "resurrection" of believers, 1Cr 6:14 [2nd part; see No. 1 (a) for the 1st part];

(b) of "raising" a person to public position, Rom 9:17, "did I raise thee up," RV, said of Pharaoh.

4 Strong's Number: g1817 Greek: exanistemi

Raise (Up):

ek, "out of," and No. 2, is used of "raising" up seed, Mar 12:19; Luk 20:28; elsewhere, Act 15:5, "to rise up."

5 Strong's Number: g4891 Greek: sunegeiro

Raise (Up):

"to raise together" (sun, "with," and No. 1), is used of the believer's spiritual resurrection with Christ. Eph 2:6; Passive Voice in Col 2:12, RV, "ye were... raised (with Him)," AV, "ye are risen;" so Col 3:1.


(1) In Act 13:50, AV, epegeiro, "to rouse up, excite," is translated "raised" (RV, "stirred up," as in AV and RV in Act 14:2).

(2) In Act 24:12, poieo, to make, is used with epistasis, a collection of people, and translated "stirring up (a crowd)," RV, lit., 'making a collection (of a crowd)'; some mss. have episustasis, a resurrection, preceded by ex (i.e., ek), "out of, or by," instrumental, is translated "raised to life again" (a paraphrase), RV, "by a resurrection."


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
