Disannul, Disannulling

A — 1: ἀθετέω

(Strong's #114 — Verb — atheteo — ath-et-eh'-o )

signifies "to put as of no value" (a, negative, theton, "what is placed," from tithemi, "to put, place"); hence, (a) "to act towards anything as though it were annulled;" e.g., to deprive a law of its force by opinions or acts contrary to it, Galatians 3:15 , AV, "disannulleth," RV, "maketh void;" (b) "to thwart the efficacy of anything, to nullify, to frustrate it," Luke 7:30 , "rejected;" 1 Corinthians 1:19 , "will I reject;" to make void, Galatians 2:21; to set at nought, Jude 1:8 , RV (AV, "despised"); the parallel passage, in 2 Peter 2:10 , has kataphroneo. In Mark 6:26 , the thought is that of breaking faith with. See DESPISE , A, Note (1).

A — 2: ἀκυρόω

(Strong's #208 — Verb — akuroo — ak-oo-ro'-o )

"to deprive of authority" (a, negative, kuros, "force, authority;" cp. kurios, "a lord," kuroo, "to strengthen"), hence, "to make of none effect," Matthew 15:6; Mark 7:13 , with reference to the commandment or word of God, RV, "to make void," is translated "disannul" in Galatians 3:17 , of the inability of the Law to deprive of force God's covenant with Abraham. This verb stresses the effect of the act, while No. 1 stresses the attitude of the rejector. See VOID.

B — 1: ἀθέτησις

(Strong's #115 — Noun Feminine — athetesis — ath-et'-ay-sis )

akin to A, No. 1, "a setting aside, abolition," is translated "disannulling" Hebrews 7:18 , with reference to a commandment; in Hebrews 9:26 "to put away," with reference to sin, lit., "for a putting away." See PUTTING , Note.
