1. intransitive, to be operative, be at work, put forth power: followed by ἐν with the dative of person, Matthew 14:2; Mark 6:14; Ephesians 2:2; followed by the dative of advantage (dative commodi; (cf. Lightfoot on Galatians , as below)), to work for one, aid one, εἰς τί, unto (the accomplishing of) something ( Winer's Grammar, 397 (371)): εἰς ἀποστολήν, unto the assumption (or discharge) of the apostolic office; εἰς τά ἔθνη, equivalent to εἰς ἀποστολήν (cf. Winer s Grammar, § 66,2d.; Buttmann, § 147,8) τῶν ἐθνῶν, Galatians 2:8.

2. transitive, to effect: τί, 1 Corinthians 12:11; ( Ephesians 1:11); ἐνεργεῖν ἐνέργειαν, Ephesians 1:19f; τί ἐν τίνι, the dative of person, 1 Corinthians 12:6 ( Buttmann, 124 (109)); Galatians 3:5; Philippians 2:13.

In James 5:16 ἐνεργουμένη does not have the force of an adjective, but gives the reason why the δέησις of a righteous man has outward success, viz. as due to the fact that it exhibits its activity ( works) (inwardly), i. e. is solemn and earnest. (The active (and passive) in Greek writings from Aristotle down.) (On this word cf. (besides Lightfoot on Galatians 2:8; Galatians 5:6) Fritzsche and Vaughan on Romans 7:5; Ellicott on Galatians , 2:8.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐνεργέω seems always to have the idea of effective working : see s.v. ἐνέργεια, and cf. Robinson Eph. p. 241 ff. The verb has begun in later Greek to be followed by a direct obj. in the acc. (cf. Proleg. p. 65), as in P Oxy XII. 1567 (iv/A.D.) according to the editors’ alternative reading—εἰ Θαεὶς εὗρεν τοῦτο τὸ τετράποδων (l.δον), ἐνεργήτω (l.είτω) τοῦτό μοι ἔξω. For the intrans. use see P Giss I. 78.4 (ii/A.D.) καλῶς δὲ ποιήσεις καὶ περὶ τὰ λοιπὰ ἐνεργήσασα, Vett. Val. p. 226.2 ἐνεργήσει πρὸς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἢ φαῦλον : cf. Galatians 2:8, where, however, the trans. of Πέτρῳ is uncertain, either ";for Peter"; (RV), or perhaps better ";by Peter"; (Hort Christian Ecclesia, p. 85). On the possibility that in 1 Thessalonians 2:13 ἐνεργεῖται is pass. = ";is set in operation,"; see Milligan Thess. ad l., and for a similar usage of ἐνεργουμένη in James 5:16 see Proleg. p. 156, ExpT xxvi. p. 381 ff. From the inscrr. we may cite Syll 540.14 (B.C. 175–1) ἐνεργῶν τεχνίταις ἱκανοῖς κατὰ τὴν τέχνην, and .108 ποιῶν ὀρθὰ πάντα πρὸς κανόνα διηνεκῆ μὴ ἐλάττω τοῦ ἐνεργουμένου λίθου.
