Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1380 Greek: dokeo


"to suppose, to think, to form an opinion," which may be either right or wrong, is sometimes rendered "to think," e.g., Mat 3:9; 6:7; see ACCOUNT, No. 1, SUPPOSE, No. 2.

2 Strong's Number: g2233 Greek: hegeomai


for which see ACCOUNT, No. 3, is rendered "to think" in Act 26:2; 2Cr 9:5, "I thought;" Phl 2:6, AV (RV, "counted"); 2Pe 1:13.

3 Strong's Number: g3539 Greek: noeo


"to perceive, understand, apprehend," is rendered "think" in Eph 3:20.

4 Strong's Number: g5282 Greek: huponeo


"to suppose, surmise" (hupo, "under," and No. 3), is rendered "to think" in Act 13:25, AV (RV, "suppose").

5 Strong's Number: g3049 Greek: logizomai


"to reckon," is rendered "to think," in Rom 2:3, AV (RV, "reckonest"); 1Cr 13:5, AV, RV, "taketh (not) account of," i.e., love does not reckon up or calculatingly consider the evil done to it (something more than refraining from imputing motives); 1Cr 13:11, "I thought;" in the following, for the AV, "to think," in 2Cr 3:5, RV, "to account;" 1Cr 10:2 (twice), "count;" 1Cr 10:7, "consider;" 1Cr 10:11, "reckon;" 1Cr 12:6, "account." In Phl 4:8, "think on (these things)," it signifies "make those things the subjects of your thoughtful consideration," or "carefully reflect on them" (RV marg., "take account of").
See ACCOUNT, A, No. 4.

6 Strong's Number: g3543 Greek: nomizo


to suppose, is sometimes rendered to think, e.g., Mat 5:17.
See SUPPOSE, No. 1.

7 Strong's Number: g5426 Greek: phroneo


"to be minded in a certain way" (phren, "the mind"), is rendered "to think," in Rom 12:3 (2nd and 3rd occurrences), RV, "not to think of himself more highly (huperphroneo, see No. 13) than he ought to think (phroneo); but so think (phroneo) as to think soberly [sophroneo, see Note (3)];" the play on words may be expressed by a literal rendering somewhat as follows: "not to over-think beyond what it behoves him to think, but to think unto sober-thinking;" in 1Cr 4:6, some inferior texts have this verb, hence the RV, puts "go" in italics; lit., the sentence is "that ye might learn the (i.e., the rule) not beyond what things have been written." The saying appears to be proverbial, perhaps a rabbinical adage. Since, however, grapho, "to write," was a current term for framing a law or an agreement (so Deissmann, Bible Studies, and Moulton and Milligan, Vocab.), it is quite possible that the Apostle's meaning is "not to go beyond the terms of a teacher's commission, thinking more of himself than the character of his commission allows;" this accords with the context and the whole passage, 1Cr 3:1-4:5. In Phl 1:7, AV, "to think" (RV, "to be... minded").
See AFFECTION, B, Note (1) and list there.

8 Strong's Number: g3633 Greek: oiomai | oimai


"to imagine," is rendered "I suppose" in Jhn 21:25; "thinking" in Phl 1:17, RV (Phl 1:16, AV, "supposing"); "let (not that man) think," Jam 1:7.

9 Strong's Number: g5316 Greek: phaino


in the Passive Voice, "to appear," is rendered "(what) think (ye)" in Mar 14:64, lit., "what does it appear to you?"
See APPEAR, No. 1.

10 Strong's Number: g2106 Greek: eudokeo


"to be well-pleasing," is rendered "we thought it good" in 1Th 3:1.

11 Strong's Number: g515 Greek: axioo


"to regard as worthy" (axios), "to deem it suitable," is rendered "thought (not) good" in Act 15:38.

12 Strong's Number: g1760 Greek: enthumeomai


"to reflect on, ponder," is used in Mat 1:20; 9:4: see No. 14. Cp. enthumesis, "consideration" (see THOUGHT).

13 Strong's Number: g5252 Greek: huperphroneo


"to be overproud, high-minded," occurs in Rom 12:3, rendered "to think of himself more highly." See No. 7.

14 Strong's Number: g1223 g1760 Greek: dienthumeomai


"to consider deeply" (dia, "through," and No. 12), is used of Peter in Act 10:19, in the best texts (some have No. 12).

15 Strong's Number: g1911 Greek: epiballo


"to throw oneself upon," is used metaphorically in Mar 14:72, "when he thought thereon (he wept)," lit., "thinking thereon," but "to think" is an exceptional sense of the word (see BEAT, CAST, LAY, PUT); hence various suggestions have been made. Field, following others, adopts the meaning "putting (his garment) over (his head)," as an expression of grief. Others regard it as having here the same meaning as archomai, "to begin" (at an early period, indeed, archomai was substituted in the text for the authentic epiballo); Moulton confirms this form a papyrus writing. Another suggestion is to understand it as with dianoian, "mind", i.e., "casting his mind thereon."


(1) In Act 26:8, AV, krino, "to judge, reckon," is translated "should it be thought" (RV, "is it judged").

(2) In Luk 12:17, AV, dialogizomai, "to reason" (RV, "reasoned"), is translated "thought."

(3) In Rom 12:3, sophroneo, "to think soberly," RV, is, lit., "unto sober thinking," the infinitive mood of the verb being used as a noun (AV marg., "to sobriety"): Cp. No. 7.
See SOBER, B, No. 2.
