Thayer's Expanded Definition
 ναός, ναοῦ, (ναίω to dwell), the Sept. for הֵיכָל, used of the temple at Jerusalem, but only of the sacred edifice (or sanctuary) itself, consisting of the Holy place and the Holy of holies (in classical Greek used of the sanctuary or cell of a temple, where the image of the god was placed, called also δόμος, σηκός, which is to be distinguished from τό ἱερόν, the whole temple, the entire consecrated enclosure; this distinction is observed also in the Bible; see ἱερόν, p. 299{a}): Matthew 23:16f, 35 27:40; Mark 14:58; Mark 15:29; John 2:19; Revelation 11:2; nor need Matthew 27:5 be regarded as an exception, provided we suppose that Judas in his desperation entered the Holy place, which no one but the priests was allowed to enter ((note the εἰς (others, ἐν) of T Tr WH)). with Θεοῦ, τοῦ Θεοῦ, added: Matthew 26:61; 1 Corinthians 3:17; 2 Corinthians 6:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 11:1; used specifically of the Holy place, where the priests officiated: Luke 1:9,21 f; of the Holy of holies (see καταπέτασμα), Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45. in the visions of the Revelation used of the temple of the 'New Jerusalem': Revelation 3:12; Revelation 7:15; Revelation 11:19; Revelation 14:15,17; Revelation 15:5f, 8; Revelation 16:1,17; of any temple whatever prepared for the true God, Acts 7:48 Rec.; Acts 17:24>. of miniature silver temples modeled after the temple of Diana (i. e. Artemis (which see)) of Ephesus, Acts 19:24. Θεός ναός αὐτῆς ἐστιν, takes the place of a temple in it, Revelation 21:22. metaphorically, of a company of Christians, a Christian church, as dwelt in by the Spirit of God: 1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 6:16; Ephesians 2:21; for the same reason, of the bodies of Christians, 1 Corinthians 6:19. of the body of Christ, ναός τοῦ σώματος αὐτοῦ (epexegetical genitive ( Winer's Grammar, 531 (494))), John 2:21, and according to the Evangelist's interpretation in 19 also. ((From Homer on.))

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this common adj., which persists in MGr, it is enough to cite P Ryl II. 127.30 (A.D. 29), a list of stolen property including—ξύλινον πυξίδιν ἐν ᾧ ἀργ (υρίου) (δραχμαὶ) . . δ ̄, ";a small wooden box in which were 4 silver dr.,"; P Tebt II. 414.35 (ii/A.D.) τὸν ξύλινον δίφρον, ";the wooden stool,"; P Oxy VIII. 1127.8 (A.D. 183) περιστερεῶνα σὺν τῇ τούτου κλείμακι ξυλίνῃ, ";a pigeon-house with its wooden ladder,"; and ib. XII. 1449.11 (A.D. 213–17) a statue of Demeter—οὗ ἡ προτομ () Παρίνη, τὰ δὲ ἄλλα μέρη τοῦ σώματ (ος) ξ ̣[ύλινα, ";of which the bust is of Parian marble, and the other parts of the body of wood"; (Edd.). In Syll 554.17 f. (ii/B.C. ad init.) a distinction is drawn between ξύλιναι ὦναι and σιτηραὶ ὦναι. With the remission of the 50% tax on tree-fruits in 1 Maccabees 10:29 cf. OGIS 55.13 (iii/B.C.) ἀφεῖκεν ἀτε [λεῖ ]ς τῶν τε ξυλί [νων κ ]αρπῶν : see the note. For the form ξυλικός, which cannot be distinguished in meaning, cf. P Ryl II. 157.16 (A.D. 135) τῆς δαπάνης τῆς τε ἐπισκευῆς καὶ κατασκευῆς τοῦ ξυλικοῦ [ὀργάνου, ";the cost of keeping and repairing the wooden water-wheel"; (Edd.), P Amh II. 93.20 (A.D. 181) καταιάγματος (l. κατε –) ξυλικῶν ἢ ἀργαλίων (l. ἐργ –), ";breakage of wood-work or tools"; (Edd.), and OGIS 510.7 (Ephesus—A.D. 138–61) τὴν λοιπὴν ξυλικὴν παρασκευὴν τῶν θεατρικῶν. Other exx. in the note to PSI V. 528 .15 f.
