Thayer's Expanded Definition
 ὁμολογέω, ὁμολογῶ; imperfect ὡμολόγουν; future ὁμολογήσω; 1aorist ὡμολόγησα; present passive 3person singular ὁμολογεῖται; (from ὁμόλογος, and this from ὁμον and λέγω); from ( Sophocles and) Herodotus down;

1. properly, to say the same thing as another, i. e. to agree with, assent, both absolutely and with a dative of the person; often so in Greek writings from Herodotus down; hence,

2. universally, to concede; i. e.

a. not to refuse, i. e. to promise: τίνι τήν ἐπαγγελίαν, Acts 7:17 L T Tr WH (here R. V. vouchsafe); followed by an object. infinitive, Matthew 14:7 ( Plato, Demosthenes, Plutarch, others).

b. not to deny, i. e. to confess; declare: joined with οὐκ ἀρνεῖσθαι, followed by direct discourse with recitative ὅτι, John 1:20; followed by ὅτι, Hebrews 11:13; τίνι τί, ὅτι, Acts 24:14; to confess, i. e. to admit or declare oneself guilty of what one is accused of: τάς ἁμαρτίας, 1 John 1:9 ( Sirach 4:26).

3. to profess (the difference between the Latin profiteor (`to declare openly and voluntarily') and confiteor (`to declare fully,' implying the yielding or change of one's conviction; cf. pro fessio fidei, confessio peccatorum) is exhibited in Cicero, pro Sest. 51,109), i. e. to declare openly, speak out freely ( A. V. generally confess; on its construction see Buttmann, § 133,7): (followed by an infinitive, εἰδέναι Θεόν, Titus 1:16); τίνι (cf. Buttmann, as above; Winer's Grammar, § 31,1f.) followed by direct discourse with ὅτι recitative, Matthew 7:23; one is said ὁμολογεῖν that of which he is convinced and which he holds to be true (hence, ὁμολογεῖν is distinguished from πιστεύειν in John 12:42; Romans 10:9f): the passive absolute, with στόματι (dative of instrum.) added, Romans 10:10; τί, Acts 23:8; τινα with a predicate accusative ( Buttmann, as above), αὐτόν Χριστόν, John 9:22; κύριον (predicate accusative) λησουν, Romans 10:9 (here WH τό ῤῆμα ... ὅτι κύριος etc., L marginal reading Tr marginal reading simply ὅτι etc.; again with ὅτι in 1 John 4:15); Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν ἐν σαρκί ἐληλυθότα ( Tr marginal reading WH marginal reading ἐληλυθεναι), 1 John 4:2 and Rec. also in 3 (see below); ἐρχόμενον ἐν σαρκί, 2 John 1:7 (cf. Buttmann, as above; Winer's Grammar, 346 (324)); τινα, to profess oneself the worshipper of one, 1 John 4:3 (here WH marginal reading λύει, cf. Westcott, Epistles of John , p. 156ff) and G L T Tr WH in 1 John 2:23>; ἐν with a dative of the person (see ἐν, I:8c.), Matthew 10:32; Luke 12:8; with cognate accusative giving the substance of the profession (cf. Buttmann, § 131,5; Winer's Grammar, § 32,2), ὁμολογίαν, 1 Timothy 6:12 (also followed by περί τίνος, Philo de mut. nom. § 8); τό ὄνομα τίνος, to declare the name (written in the book of life) to be the name of a follower of me, Revelation 3:5 G L T Tr WH.

4. According to a usage unknown to Greek writers to praise, celebrate (see ἐξομολογέω, 2; ( Buttmann, § 133,7)): τίνι, Hebrews 13:15. (Compare: ἀνθομολογέω (ἀνθομολογοῦμαι), ἐξομολογέω.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";heavenly,"; is seen in P Eud 24.3 (before B.C. 165) οὐράνια διδασκαλέα, and in P Thead 49.3 (A.D. 307–324?) ἰς γνῶσιν τῆς οὐρανίου αὐτοῦ π ̣ρ ̣[ο ]μηθείας [ ]φῖκται. In both these instances it is an adj. of two terminations as in Luke 2:13 στρατιᾶς οὐρανίου (but subst. οὐρανοῦ in B* D*), and Acts 26:19 τῇ οὐρανίῳ ὀπτασίᾳ. The fem. in –α, as in class. Greek, is restored by the editor in PSI I. 86.3 (A.D. 367–375) ὁμολ [ογῶ ὀμνὺς τὴν θεί ]αν καὶ οὐραν ̣ι ̣[αν τύ ]χην κτλ. The adj. is naturally common in the magic papyri, e.g. P Lond 46.166 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) πᾶς δαίμων οὐράνιος καὶ αἰθέριος καὶ ἐπίγειος καὶ ὑπόγειος : cf. also the horoscope ib. 130.4 (i/ii A.D.) (= I. p. 133), where a master of astrology urges his pupil to be very exact in the application of the rules which the ancient Egyptians had discovered and handed down with such care—τ ]ῶν Αὶγυπτίων οἱ τὸ παλαιὸν ἄ [νδρ ]ες γενόμενοι [γ ]νησίως τὰ περ [ ] τὰ οὐράνια φιλοπονήσαντες. . . ἀπέλειπον τὴν περὶ αὐτῶν γνῶσιν, and the imprecation Wünsch AF p.17.22 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν τῶν οὐρανίων στερεωμάτων (cf. Genesis 1:8) δεσπόζοντα Ἰάω ιβοηα.
