Dictionaries :: Take

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g2983 Greek: lambano

Take:

"to take, lay hold of," besides its literal sense, e.g., Mat 5:40; 26:26, 27, is used metaphorically, of fear, in "taking" hold of people, Luk 7:16, RV (AV, "came... on"); of sin in "finding (occasion)," RV (AV, "taking"), Rom 7:8, 11, where sin is viewed as the corrupt source of action, an inward element using the commandment to produce evil effects; of the power of temptation, 1Cr 10:13; of "taking" an example, Jam 5:10; of "taking" peace from the earth, Rev 6:4; of Christ in "taking" the form of a servant, Phl 2:7; of "taking" rightful power (by the Lord, hereafter), Rev 11:17.

"to get, or have, a share of," is rendered "to take (food)" in Act 2:46, RV (AV, "did eat," see EAT, Note); 27:33, i.e., "to share it together."
See HAVE, PARTAKE, RECEIVE.

7 Strong's Number: g3880 Greek: paralambano

Take:

besides its meaning "to receive," denotes "to take to (or with) oneself," of "taking" a wife, e.g., Mat 1:20, 24; of "taking" a person or persons with one, e.g., Mat 2:13, 14, 20, 21; 4:5, 8; of demons, Mat 12:45; of Christ and His disciples, Mat 17:1; 20:17; Mar 9:2; 10:32; 14:33; of witnesses, Mat 18:16; of the removal of persons from the earth in judgment, when "the Son of Man is revealed," Mat 24:40, 41; Luk 17:34, 35 (cp. the means of the removal of corruption, in Luk 17:37); of the "taking" of Christ by the soldiers for scourging, Mat 27:27, RV, and to crucifixion, Jhn 19:16; see also Act 15:39; 16:33; 21:24, 26, 32; 23:18.

See CATCH, CONCEIVE, HELP.

12 Strong's Number: g142 Greek: airo

Take:

"to lift, carry, take up or away," occurs very frequently with its literal meanings. In Jhn 1:29 it is used of Christ as "the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world," not the sins, but sin, that which has existed from the time of the Fall, and in regard to which God has had judicial dealings with the world; through the expiatory sacrifice of Christ the sin of the world will be replaced by everlasting righteousness; cp. the plural, "sins," in 1Jo 3:5. Righteous judgment was "taken away" from Christ at human tribunals, and His life, while voluntarily given by Himself (Jhn 10:17, 18), was "taken (from the earth)," Act 8:33 (quoted from the Sept. of Isa 53:8). In Jhn 15:2 it is used in the Lord's statement, "Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit, He taketh it away." This does not contemplate members of the "body" of Christ, but those who (just as a graft which being inserted, does not "abide" or "strike") are merely professed followers, giving only the appearance of being joined to the parent stem.

The Law described in Col 2:14 as "the bond written in ordinances that was against us," Christ "took" out of the way at His Cross. In 1Cr 5:2, airo is used in the best texts (some have No. 14), of the Divine judgment which would have been exercised in "taking away" from the church the incestuous delinquent, had they mourned before God.
See AWAY, BEAR, No. 9, etc.

13 Strong's Number: g522 Greek: apairo

Take:

"to lift off" (apo, "from," and No. 12), is used, in the Passive Voice, of Christ, metaphorically as the Bridegroom of His followers, Mat 9:15; Mar 2:20; Luk 5:35.

14 Strong's Number: g1808 Greek: exairo

Take:

"to take away," is used of "putting away" a person in church discipline, 1Cr 5:13; for this verb as a variant reading in ver. 2, see No. 12.

15 Strong's Number: g1869 Greek: epairo

Take:

"to lift, raise," is used in the Passive Voice and rendered "He was taken up" in Act 1:9.
See EXALT, HOIST, LIFT.

16 Strong's Number: g337 Greek: anaireo

Take:

"to take up" (ana, "up," and haireo, "to take"), is used of Pharaoh's daughter in "taking up" the infant Moses, Act 7:21; of God's act in "taking away" the typical animal sacrifices under the Law, Hbr 10:9.
See DEATH, C, No. 2, KILL, SLAY.

17 Strong's Number: g851 Greek: aphaireo

Take:

"to take away" (apo), is used with this meaning in Luk 1:25; 10:42; 16:3; Rom 11:27, of the "removal" of the sins of Israel; Hbr 10:4, of the impossibility of the "removal" of sins by offerings under the Law; in Rev 22:19 (twice).
See CUT, No. 8.

18 Strong's Number: g2507 Greek: kathaireo

Take:

"to take down" (kata), besides its meaning of "putting down by force," was the technical term for the "removal" of the body after crucifixion, Mar 15:36, 46; Luk 23:53; Act 13:29.
See CAST, No. 14.

19 Strong's Number: g4014 Greek: periaireo

Take:

"to take away that which surrounds" (peri, "around"), is used

(a) literally, of "casting off" anchors, Act 27:40, RV (AV, "having taken up"); Act 28:13 in some texts, for perierchomai, "to make a circuit;"

(b) metaphorically, of "taking away" the veil off the hearts of Israel, 2Cr 3:16; of hope of rescue, Act 27:20; of sins (negatively), Hbr 10:11.

20 Strong's Number: g1209 Greek: dechomai

Take:

"to receive," is rendered "take (thy bond, RV, AV, bill)" in Luk 16:6, 7; "take (the helmet of salvation)," Eph 6:17, suggesting a heartiness in the "taking."
See ACCEPT, No. 1, RECEIVE.

21 Strong's Number: g4327 Greek: prosdechomai

Take:

"to receive favorably," is rendered "took" in Hbr 10:34.
See ACCEPT, No. 3.

"to give," found in the best texts in Mar 3:6, is rendered "took (counsel);" some have poieo, "to make."

25 Strong's Number: g2722 Greek: katecho

Take:

"to hold," is rendered "to take (the lowest place)" in Luk 14:9.
See HOLD.

26 Strong's Number: g4084 Greek: piazo

Take:

"to lay or take hold of forcefully," is always rendered "to take" in the RV.
See APPREHEND, No. 2.

27 Strong's Number: g3911 Greek: paraphero

Take:

"to bear away" (para, "aside," phero, "to bear"), "remove," is rendered "take away" in Mar 14:36, AV, RV, "remove," as in Luk 22:42.
See REMOVE.

28 Strong's Number: g2192 Greek: echo

Take:

See CAST, No. 5.

32 Strong's Number: g941 Greek: bastazo

Take:

"to bear, lift," is used of "taking up" stones, Jhn 10:31. As to Mat 3:11, Moulton and Milligan supply evidences from the vernacular that the word signified "to take off" (the sandals), which confirms Mark's word luo, "to unloose" (Jhn 1:7).
See BEAR, No. 1.
