Renounce

1: ἀπεῖπον

(Strong's #550 — Verb — apeipon — ap-i-pom'-ane )

lit., "to tell from" (apo, "from," eipon, an aorist form used to supply parts of lego, "to say"), signifies "to renounce," 2 Corinthians 4:2 (Middle Voice), of disowning "the hidden things of shame." In the Sept. of 1 Kings 11:2 it signifies "to forbid," a meaning found in the papyri. The meaning "to renounce" may therefore carry with it the thought of forbidding the approach of the things disowned.

2: ἀποτάσσω

(Strong's #657 — Verb — apotasso — ap-ot-as'-som-ahee )

"to set apart, to appoint," a meaning found in the papyri (apo, from, tasso, "to arrange"), is used in the Middle Voice in the sense either of "taking leave of," e.g., Acts 18:18 , or "forsaking," Luke 14:33 , RV, "renounceth" (AV "forsaketh"). See FORSAKE , LEAVE.
