6. δίδωμι is joined with nouns denoting an act or an effeet; and a. the act or effect of him who gives, in such a sense that what he is said διδόναι (either absolutely or with the dative of person) he is conceived of as effecting, or as becoming its author. Hence, δίδωμι joined with a noun can often be changed into an active verb expressing the effecting of that which the noun denotes. Thus, διδόναι αἶνον τῷ Θεῷ is equivalent to αἰνεῖν τόν Θεόν, Luke 18:43; ἀπόκρισιν τίνι equivalent to ἀποκρίνεσθαι, John 1:22; John 19:9; ἐγκοπήν δοῦναι τῷ εὐαγγελίῳ equivalent to ἐνκόπτειν τό εὐαγγέλιον, to hinder (the progress of) the gospel, 1 Corinthians 9:12; ἐντολήν τίνι equivalent to ἐντέλλεσθαι τίνι John 11:57; John 12:49; John 13:34; 1 John 3:23; δόξαν τίνι equivalent to δοξάζειν τίνι (see δόξα, II.); ἐργασίαν, after the Latin operam dare, take pains, ( A. V. give diligence), equivalent to ἐργάζεσθαι, Luke 12:58 (συμβούλιον, cf. the Latin consilium dare, equivalent to συμβουλεύεσθαι, Mark 3:6 Tr text WH text); διαστολήν τίνι i. q διαστέλλειν τί, 1 Corinthians 14:7; παραγγελίαν, 1 Thessalonians 4:2 παράκλησιν, 2 Thessalonians 2:16; ἔλεος equivalent to ἐληιν, 2 Timothy 1:16,18 ἀγάπην, show ( A. V. bestow), 1 John 3:1; ἐκδίκησιν 2 Thessalonians 1:8; βασανισμόν, Revelation 18:7; ῤάπισμα equivalent to ῥαπίζειν τινα, John 18:22; John 19:3; φίλημα equivalent to φιλεῖν τινα, Luke 7:45. or b. the noun denotes something to be done by him to whom it is said to be given: διδόναι τίνι μετάνοιαν, to cause him to repent, Acts 5:31; Acts 11:18; γνῶσιν σωτηρίας, Luke 1:77; ἐλπίδα τίνι, 2 Thessalonians 2:16.

7. Joined with nouns denoting strength, faculty, power, virtue, δίδωμι (τίνι τί) is equivalent to: to furnish, endue, (one with a thing): Luke 21:15 (δώσω ὑμῖν στόμα καί σοφίαν); Acts 7:10; ἐξουσίαν, Matthew 9:8; Matthew 10:1; Luke 10:19; John 17:2; Revelation 2:26; Revelation 6:8; Revelation 13:7; διάνοιαν, 1 John 5:20; σύνεσιν, 2 Timothy 2:7; and in the very common phrase διδόναι τό πνεῦμα.

II. δίδωμι τί without a dative, and δίδωμι τινα.

1. δίδωμι τί;

a. with the force of to cause, produce, give forth from oneself: ὑετόν, from heaven, James 5:18; καρπόν, Matthew 13:8; Mark 4:7,8f ( Deuteronomy 25:19; Sirach 23:25); σημεῖα, Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22 (not Tdf.); Acts 2:19 ( Exodus 7:9; Deuteronomy 13:1, etc.); ὑπόδειγμα, John 13:15; φέγγος, Matthew 24:29; Mark 13:24 (φῶς, Isaiah 13:10); φωνήν, 1 Corinthians 14:7f; διά τῆς γλώσσης λόγον, 1 Corinthians 14:9; γνώμην, to give one's opinion, to give advice, 1 Corinthians 7:25; 2 Corinthians 8:10.

b. διδόναι κλήρους (גּורָל נָתַן, Leviticus 16:8), to give, i. e. hand out lots, namely, to be cast into the urn (see κλῆρος, 1), Acts 1:26.

c. δίδωμι τί with the predicate accusative: Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45 (to give up as a λύτρον); Matthew 16:26; Mark 8:37 (to pay as an equivalent).

2. δίδωμι τινα;

a. where the noun refers to the office one bears, to appoint: κριτάς, Acts 13:20.

b. to cause to come forth: δίδωμι ἐκ τῆς συναγωγῆς τοῦ Σατανᾶ τῶν λεγόντων (namely, τινας (cf. Buttmann, 158 (138); Winer's Grammar, § 59,4b.)), Revelation 3:9; so also the sea, death, Hades, are said to give (up) the dead who have been engulfed or received by them, Revelation 20:13.

3. δίδωμι τινα τίνι;

a. to give one to some one as his own: as the object of his saving care, Hebrews 2:13; to give one to someone, to follow him as a leader and master, John 6:37,39; John 10:29; John 17:6,9, 12 (but see B. I:4.

c. aa. above), John 17:24>; John 18:9>; in these passages God is said to have given certain men to Christ, i. e. to have disposed them to acknowledge Christ as the author and medium of their salvation, and to enter into intimate relations with him, hence Christ calls them 'his own' (τά ἐμά, John 10:14).

b. to give one to some one to care for his interests: John 3:16 (ἔδωκεν namely, αὐτῷ, i. e. τῷ κόσμῳ); Acts 13:21.

c. to give one to some one to whom he already belonged, to return: Luke 7:15 (Luke 9:42> ἀπεδωκε (so L marginal reading in Luke 7:15)).

d. δίδωμι ἐμαυτόν τίνι, to one demanding of me something, I give myself up as it were; an hyperbole for disregarding entirely my private interests, I give as much as ever I can: 2 Corinthians 8:5.

4. δίδωμι τινα with a predicate accusative: ἑαυτόν τύπον, to render or set forth oneself as an example, 2 Thessalonians 3:9; with a predicate of dignity, office, function, and a dative of the person added for whose benefit some one invested with said dignity or office is given, that Isaiah , is bestowed: αὐτόν ἔδωκεν κεφαλήν ὑπέρ πάντα τῇ ἐκκλησία, head over all things to the church, Ephesians 1:22; ἔδωκεν τούς μέν ἀποστόλους κτλ., namely, τῇ ἐκκλησία, Ephesians 4:11. For in neither of these passages are we obliged, with many interpreters, to translate the word appointed, made, after the use of the Hebrew נָתַן; especially since in the second Paul seems wish to confirm the words quoted in Ephesians 4:8, ἔδωκε δόματα τοῖς ἀνθρώποις. Those in the church whom Christ has endued with gifts and functions for the common advantage the apostle reckons among the δόματα given by him after his ascension to heaven.

III. Phrases in which to the verb δίδωμι, either standing alone or joined to cases, there is added:

1. an infinitive, either alone or with an accusative; δίδωμι τίνι followed by an infinitive denoting the object: δίδωμι τίνι φαγεῖν, give, supply, something to eat, give food ( Buttmann, 261 (224); Winer's Grammar, 318f (299)), Matthew 14:18; Matthew 25:35,42; Mark 6:37; Mark 5:43; Luke 8:55; Luke 9:13; Revelation 2:7; πιεῖν, John 4:7,10; with the addition of an object accusative depending on the φαγεῖν or πιεῖν: Matthew 27:34; Mark 15:23 ( R G L); with an accusative added depending on the verb δίδωμι: John 6:31 Revelation 16:6; followed by an infinitive indicating design (cf. Buttmann, as above), to grant or permit one to etc.: Luke 1:73 f (δοῦναι ἡμῖν ἀφόβως λατρεύειν αὐτῷ); John 5:26; Acts 4:29; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 3:16; Revelation 3:21; Revelation 6:4; Revelation 7:2; (followed by εἰς, with the infinitive: Romans 15:16, cf. Buttmann, 265 (228)); by a construction borrowed from the Hebrew, καί δώσω τοῖς ... καί προφητεύσουσι, Revelation 11:3; in the passive, Matthew 13:12; Mark 4:11 (ὑμῖν δέδοται γνῶναι ( G L T Tr WH omit γνῶναι) to you it has been granted etc.); followed by the accusative and the infinitive: δῴη ( L T Tr WH δῷ) ὑμῖν ... κατοικῆσαι τόν Χριστόν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ὑμῶν, Ephesians 3:16f; ἔδωκεν αὐτόν ἐμφανῆ γενέσθαι, Acts 10:40; οὐ δώσεις τόν ὅσιον σου ἰδεῖν διαφθοράν (from Psalm 15:10 (Psalm 16:10>), Acts 2:27; Acts 13:35.

2. δίδωμι τίνι, followed by ἵνα, to grant or permit, that, etc. ( Buttmann, 238 (205) Winer's Grammar, 337 (316), cf. 545 (507)): Mark 10:37; Revelation 19:8. to commission, Revelation 9:5.

IV. δίδωμι τί, or τίνι τί, or τίνι or τινα, followed by a preposition with a noun (or pronoun);

1. τίνι ἐκ τίνος (cf. Winer s Grammar, § 28,1; Buttmann, 159 (139)): δότε ἡμῖν (a part) ἐκ τοῦ ἐλαίου ὑμῶν, Matthew 25:8; ἐκ τῶν ἄρτων, easily to be supplied from the context, Mark 2:26; Luke 6:4; ἐκ τοῦ πνεύματος αὐτοῦ ἔδωκεν ἡμῖν, 1 John 4:13; otherwise in John 3:34 Θεός οὐ δίδωσι τό πνεῦμα ἐκ μέτρου, by measure, i. e. according to measure, moderately (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 51,1d.); otherwise in Revelation 3:9 δίδωμι ἐκ τῆς συναγωγῆς (see II:2b. above). τίνι ἀπό τίνος: Luke 20:10 ἵνα ἀπό τί καρποῦ τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος δῶσιν ( L T Tr WH δώσουσιν) αὐτῷ, namely, the portion due. Τί followed by εἰς with a noun, to give something to put into, Luke 6:38 μέτρον δώσουσιν εἰς τόν κόλπον ὑμῶν (shall they give, i. e. pour into your bosom), or upon, Luke 15:22 δότε δακτύλιον εἰς τήν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ (put a ring on his hand); εἰς τόν ἀγρόν, for the field, to pay its price, Matthew 27:10; τίνι τί εἰς τάς χεῖρας, to commit a thing to one, deliver it into one's power: John 13:3 (Hebrew פּ בְּיַד נָתַן, Genesis 9:2; Genesis 14:20; Exodus 4:21); εἰς τήν διάνοιαν, or ἐπί τάς καρδίας ( Jeremiah 38:33 (Jeremiah 31:33>)), put into the mind, fasten upon the heart, Hebrews 8:10; Hebrews 10:16; or εἰς τῆς καρδίας with an infinitive of the thing, Revelation 17:17; ( Xenophon, Cyril 8,2, 20 διδόναι τίνι τί εἰς τήν ψυχήν). ἑαυτόν διδόναι εἰς with the accusative of place, to betake oneself somewhere, to go into some place: Acts 19:31 (εἰς τόπους παραβολους, Polybius 5,14, 9; εἰς τόπους τραχεῖς, Diodorus 14,81; εἰς τάς ἐρημίας, Diodorus 5,59; Josephus, Antiquities 15,7, 7; εἰς κώμην τινα, Josephus, Antiquities 7,9, 7).

[ SYNONYMS: διδόναι, δωρεῖσθαι: διδόναι, to give in general, antithetic to λαμβάνειν; δωρεῖσθαι specific, to bestow, present; διδόναι might be used even of evils, but δωρεῖσθαι could be used of such things only ironically; see δόμα, at the end.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy X. 1292.9 (c. A.D. 30) ἔδωκα Ἑρμᾶτι δο ̣υ ̣̑ναί σοι (δραχμὰς) ι ̄β ̄, ib. VII. 1062.15 (ii/A.D.) τὸ ἀργύριον δὸς Ζωίλωι τῶι φιλῶι, ib. 1068.24 (iii/A.D.) εἵνα δῷς αὐτοῖς γράμματα should serve as exx. of the ordinary usage of this common verb. For διδόναι λόγον cf. P Oxy X. 1281.9 (a loan—A.D. 21) ἐφ᾽ ὧι ̣ κ ̣ο ̣μ ̣ι ̣ζ ̣ομέν ̣ου ̣ [τοῦ ] Ἰωσήπου ταῦτα πρότερον δώσει λόγ ̣ο ̣[ν ] τούτων, ";on condition that when Joseph receives it he shall first render an account of it"; (Edd.), P Strass I. 32.9 (A.D. 261) δότω λόγον, τί αὐτῷ ὀφείλ [ε ]ται καὶ ποῦ παρέσχεν, ἵνα οὕτως αὐτῷ ἐνλογηθῇ Lest Acts 13:20 should be supposed a Hebraism, after (e.g.) Numbers 14:4, we may quote P Lille I. 28.11 (iii/B.C.) αὐτοῖς ἐδώκαμεν μεσίτην Δωρ [ ]ων [α, ";nous leur avons donné pour arbitre Dorion"; (Edd.), P Flor I. 2.52 (A.D. 265) δίδομεν καὶ προσαγγέλλομεν τὸν ὑπογεγραμμένον εἰς δεσμοφυλακείαν : cf. ib. 91.3 (ii/A.D.) ἐδόθην εἰς ἑ [τέραν αὖ λιτουργία ]ν, and P Oxy IX. 1195.1 (A.D. 135) Ἀπολλωνίωι κριτῆι δοθέντι ὑπὸ Πετρωνίου Μαμερτείνου τοῦ κρατίστου ἡγεμόνος. Similarly Deissmann (LAE, P. 117) disposes of the ";Latinism"; in Luke 12:58 by reference to a letter of B.C. 2 written in vulgar Greek, P Oxy IV. 742.14 δὸς ἐργασία [ν, ";give your attention to it,"; and to the occurrence of the same phrase in the unpublished P Bremen 18 (c. A.D. 118). He also cites OGIS 441.109 (B.C. 81) φροντίζωσιν διδῶσίν τε ἐργασίαν, ";may they take heed and give diligence"; (but see Dittenberger’s note). Herwerden (Lex. s.v.) illustrates the elliptical use (e.g. Revelation 2:23) from Rev. pap. Lips. 13iii. 3 ὁ ἄλλος λίθῳ δέδωκεν τῷ υἱῷ μου, sc. πληγήν : cf. our ";he gave it him with a stick."; For δίδωμι ἐμαυτόν τινι or ὑπέρ τινος (as 2 Corinthians 8:5, Titus 2:14) cf. P Par 47.26 (c. B.C. 153) (= Witkowski.2, p. 90) ἰ καὶ αὑτοὺς δεδώκαμεν καὶ ἀποπεπτώκαμεν ὑπὸ τῶν θεῶν καὶ πιστεύοντες τὰ ἐνύπνια, and see Nägeli, p. 56. There is a suggestive use of δ. in the question addressed to an oracle, P Oxy IX. 1213.4 (ii/A.D.) ἀξιοῖ Μένανδρος [εἰ ] δέδοταί μοι γαμῆσαι; [τοῦ ]τό μοι δός ";M. asks, is it granted me to marry? Answer me this"; (Ed.), so Wessely 12, 26 εἶ οὐ [δέ ]δοταί μοι συμβιῶσαι Ταπεθεῦ [τι; (cf. Archiv v. p. 232). There is the same collocation of verbs in Matthew 19:11, where it is implied that there are those οἶς οὐ δέδοται. For δός at the end of the first oracle cf. P Oxy VIII. 1149.9 (ii/A.D.) : it answers to τοῦτό μοι σύμφωνον ἔνενκε in ib. 1148.9, and κύρωσ [όν ] μοι τοῦτο τὸ γραπτόν in Wessely’s oracle. Δὸς πεῖν (as in John 4:7) may be cited from P Leid Wviii. 9 (ii/iii A.D.).

On the forms of this verb, which was rapidly coming over into the -ω class, like other -μι verbs in the Hellenistic age—cf. MGr δίδω, δίνω or δώνω —see BS, p. 192, CR xv. pp. 37 f., 436, xviii. pp. 111 f., and the editor’s note on P Oxy VII. 1053.13. On ib. 1066.12 (iii/A.D.) ἔλεγέν μοι Ἀπόλλων ὅτι οὐδέν μοι ἔδωσεν, attention is drawn to ἔδωσεν as ";a rather early instance of the sigmatic form which is occasionally found in writers of the decadence.";
