Thayer's Expanded Definition
 οὗτος, αὕτη, τοῦτο, demonstrative pronoun (cf. Curtius, p. 543), Hebrew זֶה, זֹאת, this; used:

I. absolutely.

1.

a. this one, visibly present here: Matthew 3:17; Matthew 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 7:44; Luke 9:35; 2 Peter 1:17. Matthew 9:3; Matthew 21:38; Mark 14:69; Luke 2:34; Luke 23:2; John 1:15,30; John 7:25; John 9:8f, 19; John 18:21,30; John 21:21; Acts 2:15; Acts 4:10; Acts 9:21; according to the nature and character of the person or thing mentioned, it is used with a suggestion — either of contempt, as Matthew 13:55; Mark 6:2; Luke 5:21; Luke 7:39,49; John 6:42,52; John 7:15; or of admiration, Matthew 21:11; Acts 9:21; cf. Wahl, Clavis apocryphor. V. T., p. 370.

b. it refers to a subject immediately preceding, the one just named: Luke 1:32; Luke 2:37 ( R G L); John 1:2; John 6:71; 2 Timothy 3:6,8, etc.; at the beginning of a narrative about one already mentioned, Matthew 3:3; Luke 16:1; John 1:41 (John 1:42>); John 3:2; 12:21; 21:21>; Acts 7:19; Acts 21:24. this one just mentioned and no other: John 9:9; Acts 4:10 (ἐν τούτῳ); Acts 9:20>; 1 John 5:6; such as I have just described, 2 Timothy 3:5; 2 Peter 2:17. καί οὗτος, this one just mentioned also, i. e. as well as the rest, Luke 20:30 R G L; Hebrews 8:3. καί τοῦτον, and him too, and him indeed, 1 Corinthians 2:2.

c. it refers to the leading subject of a sentence although in position more remote ( Winer s Grammar, § 23,1; (Buttmann, § 127,3)): Acts 4:11; Acts 7:19; Acts 8:26 (on which see Γάζα under the end); 1 John 5:20 (where οὗτος is referred by (many) orthodox interpreters incorrectly ((see Alford at the passage; Winer s Grammar, and Buttmann s Grammar, the passages cited)) to the immediately preceding subject, Christ); 2 John 1:7.

d. it refers to what follows; οὗτος, αὕτη ἐστι, in this appears ... that etc.; on this depends ... that etc.: followed by ὅτι, as αὕτη ἐστιν ἐπαγγελία, ὅτι, 1 John 1:5; add, 1 John 5:11,14>; — by ἵνα, John 15:12; 1 John 3:11,23; 1 John 5:3; 2 John 1:6; τοῦτο ἐστι τό ἔργον, τό θέλημα τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἵνα, John 6:29,39f.

e. it serves to repeat the subject with emphasis: οὐ πάντες οἱ ἐξ Ἰσραήλ, οὗτοι Ἰσραήλ, Romans 9:6; add, Romans 9:8>; Romans 2:14> ( L marginal reading οἱ τοιοῦτοι); Romans 7:10; Galatians 3:7; it refers, not without special force, to a description given by a participle or by the relative ὅς, ὅστις; which description either follows, as Mark 4:16,18; Luke 8:15,21; Luke 9:9; John 11:37; followed by a relative sentence, John 1:15; 1 Peter 5:12; — or precedes: in the form of a participle, Matthew 10:22; Matthew 13:20,22; Matthew 24:13; Matthew 26:23; Mark 12:40; Luke 9:48 ( ... ὑπάρχων, οὗτος); John 6:46; John 7:18; John 15:5; 2 John 1:9; Acts 17:7; (and R G in Revelation 3:5); or of the relative ὅς, Matthew 5:19; Mark 3:35; Luke 9:24,26; John 1:33 (here L marginal reading αὐτός); John 3:26; 5:38>; Romans 8:30; 1 Corinthians 7:20; Hebrews 13:11; 1 John 2:5; 2 Peter 2:19; in the neuter, John 8:26; Romans 7:16; 1 Corinthians 7:24; Philippians 4:9; 2 Timothy 2:2; or of a preceding ὅστις, Matthew 18:4; in the neuter Philippians 3:7. ὅσοι ... οὗτοι, Romans 8:14; Galatians 6:12; also preceded by εἰ τίς, 1 Corinthians 3:17 (here Lachmann αὐτός); 1 Corinthians 8:3>; James 1:23; James 3:2; by ἐάν τίς, John 9:31; cf. Winer s Grammar, § 23,4.

f. with αὐτός annexed, this man himself, Acts 25:25; plural these themselves, Acts 24:15,20; on the neuter see below, 2a. b. etc.

g. As the relative and interrogative pronoun so also the demonstrative, when it is the subject, conforms in gender and number to the noun in the predicate: οὗτοι εἰσιν οἱ υἱοί τῆς βασιλείας, Matthew 13:38; add, Mark 4:15f, 18; αὕτη ἐστιν μεγάλη ἐντολή, Matthew 22:38; οὗτος ἐστιν πλάνος (German diese sind), 2 John 1:7.

2. The neuter τοῦτο a. refers to what precedes: Luke 5:6; John 6:61; Acts 19:17; τοῦτο εἰπών, and the like, Luke 24:40 ( T omits; Tr brackets WH reject the verse); John 4:18; John 8:6; John 12:33; John 18:38; διά τοῦτο, see διά, B. II:2a.; εἰς τοῦτο, see εἰς, B. II:3c. β.; αὐτό τοῦτο, for this very cause, 2 Peter 1:5 (Lachmann αὐτοί); cf. Matthiae, § 470,7; Passow, under the word, C. 1a. at the end (Liddell and Scott, under the word, C. IX:1 at the end; Winer's Grammar, § 21,3note 2; Kühner, § 410 Anm. 6); μετά τοῦτο, see μετά, II:2b. ἐκ τούτου, for this reason (see ἐκ, II:8), John 6:66; John 19:12; from this, i. e. hereby, by this note, 1 John 4:6 (cf. Westcott at the passage). ἐν τούτῳ, for this cause, John 16:30; Acts 24:16; hereby, by this token, 1 John 3:19. ἐπί τούτῳ, in the meanwhile, while this was going on (but see ἐπί, B. 2e., at the end, p. 234 a), John 4:27. τούτου χάριν, Ephesians 3:14. plural ταῦτα, John 7:4 ( these so great, so wonderful, things); μετά ταῦτα, see μετά, II:2b. κατά ταῦτα, in this same manner, Rec. in Luke 6:23, and Luke 17:30> (others, τά αὐτά or ταῦτα). it refers to the substance of the preceding discourse: Luke 8:8; Luke 11:27; Luke 24:26; John 5:34; John 15:11; John 21:24, and very often. καθώς ... ταῦτα, John 8:28.

b. it prepares the reader or hearer and renders him attentive to what follows, which tires gets special weight ( Winer's Grammar, § 23,5): 1 John 4:2; αὐτό τοῦτο ὅτι, Philippians 1:6; τοῦτο λέγω followed by direct discourse, Galatians 3:17 (see λέγω, II:2d.). it is prefixed to sentences introduced by the particles ὅτι, ἵνα, etc.: τοῦτο λέγω or φημί followed by ὅτι, 1 Corinthians 1:12 ((see λέγω as above); 1 Corinthians 7:29); 1 Corinthians 15:50>; γινώσκεις τοῦτο followed by ὅτι, Romans 6:6; 2 Timothy 3:1; 2 Peter 1:20; 2 Peter 3:3; λογίζεσθαι τοῦτο ὅτι, Romans 2:3; after ὁμολογεῖν, Acts 24:14; after εἰδώς, 1 Timothy 1:9; ἐν τούτῳ ὅτι, 1 John 3:16,24; 1 John 4:9f; τοῦτο, ἵνα, Luke 1:43; εἰς τοῦτο, ἵνα, Acts 9:21; Romans 14:9; 2 Corinthians 2:9; 1 Peter 3:9; 1 Peter 4:6; 1 John 3:8; διά τοῦτο, ἵνα, 2 Corinthians 13:10; 1 Timothy 1:16; Philemon 1:15; τούτων (on this neuter plural referring to a single object see Winer s Grammar, 162 (153); (cf. Riddell, Platonic Idioms, § 41)), ἵνα, 3 John 1:4; ἐν τούτῳ, ἐάν, 1 John 2:3; ὅταν, 1 John 5:2; τοῦτο αὐτό, ἵνα, on this very account, that (see a. above (but others take it here as the accusative of object; see Meyer at the passage (for instances of αὐτό τοῦτο see Buttmann, § 127,12))), 2 Corinthians 2:3; εἰς αὐτό τοῦτο, ἵνα, Ephesians 6:22; Colossians 4:8; ὅπως, Romans 9:17. In the same manner τοῦτο is put before an infinitive with τό for the sake of emphasis ( Winer s Grammar, § 23,5; Buttmann, § 140,7, 9, etc.): 2 Corinthians 2:1; before a simple infinitive, 1 Corinthians 7:37 (here R G prefix τοῦ to the infinitive); before an accusative and infinitive Ephesians 4:17; before nouns, as τοῦτο εὔχομαι, τήν ὑμῶν κατάρτισιν, 2 Corinthians 13:9, cf. 1 John 3:24; 1 John 5:4.

c. καί τοῦτο, and this, and that too, and indeed, especially: Romans 13:11; 1 Corinthians 6:6, L T Tr WH also in 8; Ephesians 2:8; καί ταῦτα, and that too, 1 Corinthians 6:8 Rec.; Hebrews 11:12; (so καί ταῦτα also in classical Greek; cf. Devar. edition Klotz i., p. 108; Viger. edition Herm., p. 176f; Matthiae, § 470,6).

d. ταῦτα, of this sort, such, spoken contemptuously of men, 1 Corinthians 6:11 (cf. Sophocles O. R 1329; Thucydides 6,77; Livy 30,30; cf. Bernhardy (1829), p. 281; ( Winer s Grammar, 162 (153))).

e. τοῦτο μέν ... τοῦτο δέ, partly ... partly, Hebrews 10:33 (for examples from Greek anth. see Winer s Grammar, 142 (135); Matthiae, ii., § 288 Anm. 2; (Kühner, § 527 Anm. 2)).

f. τουτ' ἐστιν, see εἰμί, II:3, p. 176{b}.

II. Joined to nouns it is used like an adjective;

a. so that the article stands between the demonstrative and the noun, οὗτος , αὕτη , τοῦτο τό (cf. Winer s Grammar, § 23at the end; Buttmann, § 127,29): Matthew 12:32; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 17:21 ( T WH omits; Tr brackets the verse); Matthew 20:12; 26:29>; Mark 9:29; Luke 7:44; Luke 10:36; Luke 14:30; Luke 15:24; John 4:15; John 7:46 ( L WH omit; Tr brackets the clause); John 8:20; 10:6; 11:47; 12:5>; Acts 1:11; Romans 11:24; 1 Timothy 1:18; Hebrews 7:1; Hebrews 8:10; ( 1 John 4:21); Revelation 19:9; Revelation 20:14; Revelation 21:5; Revelation 22:6. etc.; τοῦτο τό παιδίον, such a little child as ye see here, Luke 9:48; cf. Bornemann at the passage (who takes τοῦτο thus as representing the class, 'this and the like;' but cf. Meyer (edited by Weiss) at the passage).

b. so that the noun stands between the article and the demonstrative (cf. Winer's Grammar, 548 (510)); as, οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι, the stones which ye see lying near, Matthew 3:9; Matthew 4:3; add, Matthew 5:19; Matthew 7:24 ( L Tr WH brackets τούτους), Matthew 7:26,28; 9:26> ( Tr marginal reading WH marginal reading αὐτῆς); Matthew 10:23, etc.; Mark 12:16; Mark 13:30; Luke 11:31; Luke 23:47; John 4:13,21; John 7:49; John 11:9; John 18:29; Acts 6:13; Acts 19:26; Romans 15:28; 1 Corinthians 1:20; 1 Corinthians 2:6; 1 Corinthians 11:26; 2 Corinthians 4:1,7; 2 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 11:10; 2 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 3:8; Ephesians 5:32; 2 Timothy 2:19; Revelation 2:24, and very often — (which construction is far more frequent with Paul than the other (see Winer's Grammar, as above)); it is added to a noun which has another adjective, χήρα πτωχή αὕτη, Luke 21:3; πάντα τά ῤήματα ταῦτα, Luke 2:19,51 (( T WH L marginal reading omit; L text Tr marginal reading brackets ταῦτα); ἀπό τῆς γενεάς τῆς σκολιᾶς ταύτης, Acts 2:40).

c. Passages in which the reading varies between οὗτος and ... οὗτος: viz. οὗτος , Mark 14:30 L text T Tr WH; John 4:20 R L marginal reading; John 6:60 R G; John 7:36 R G; John 9:24 L WH Tr marginal reading; John 21:23 L T Tr WH. ... οὗτος, Mark 14:30 R G L marginal reading; John 4:20 G L text T Tr WH; John 6:60 L T Tr WH; John vii 36 L T Tr WH; John 9:24 G T Tr text; John 21:23 R G; etc.

d. with anarthrous nouns, especially numerical specifications ( Winer's Grammar, § 37,5 N. 1): τρίτον τοῦτο, this third time, 2 Corinthians 13:1; τοῦτο τρίτον, John 21:14 ( Judges 16:15; δεύτερον τοῦτο, Genesis 27:36; τοῦτο δέκατον, Numbers 14:22; τέταρτον τοῦτο, Herodotus 5,76). (The passages which follow, although introduced here by Prof. Grimm, are (with the exception of Acts 1:5) clearly instances of the predicative use of οὗτος; cf. Winer s Grammar, 110 (105) note; Buttmann, § 127,31; Rost § 98,3 A.

c. α. following): τοῦτο πάλιν δεύτερον σημεῖον ἐποίησεν, John 4:54; τρίτην ταύτην ἡμέραν ἄγει, this is the third day that Israel is passing (but see ἄγω, 3), Luke 24:21 (κεῖμαι τριακοστην ταύτην ἡμέραν, this is now the thirtieth day that I lie (unburied), Lucian, dial. mort. 13,3); οὐ μετά πολλάς ταύτας ἡμέρας (see μετά, II:2b. ( Winer s Grammar, 161 (152); Buttmann, § 127,4)), Acts 1:5; οὗτος μήν ἕκτος ἐστιν αὐτῇ, this is the sixth month with her etc. Luke 1:36; αὕτη ἀπογραφή πρώτη ἐγένετο, Luke 2:2 L ( T) Tr WH; ταύτην ἐποίησεν ἀρχήν τῶν σημείων, John 2:11 L T Tr WH.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For παρακούω, ";hear without heeding,"; ";ignore,"; as in LXX, Matthew 18:17, Mark 5:36, cf. the end of a letter P Hib I. 170 (B.C. 247) (= Witkowski.2, p. 27) φρόντισον δέ, ὅπως μηκέτι ἀπὸ τούτων παρακούσει ἡμῶν, ἵνα μὴ ἀντὶ φιλίας ἔχθραν [ποιώ ]μεθα, P Par 63.130 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 28) πείραν λαμβάνειν τῶν ἐξακολουθού (= )των ἐπιτ ̣ι ̣μ ̣ων ̣ τοῖς παρακούουσί τινος τῶν μετὰ σπουδῆς [ ]νθυμουμένων, where the verb means simply ";ignore,"; as against Mahaffy’s ";wilfully misinterpret,"; and P Flor II. 148.8 (A.D. 266–7) ἐὰν δέ τις τούτων μου τῶν γραμμάτων παρακούσῃ, οὐ συνοίσει αὐτῷ, ";if any one of them pays no heed to these my letters, it will not go well with him.";

See also for a stronger sense, as in LXX Isaiah 65:12, Pap. Magique de Paris 3037 διὰ τὸ παρακούειν αὐτόν, ";because of his (Pharaoh’s) refusal to hear,"; and Syll 256 (= .3 557).24 (c. B.C. 207–6) ὡς δὲ ἐπιβ [α ]λόμενοι παρη [κο ]ύσθησα [ν, ";were refused"; : similarly Test. xii. patr. Dan. ii. 3, and for the meaning ";disobey"; see Musonius p. 82.3. The verb is discussed by Field Notes, p. 28.
