A — 1: δοκέω
(Strong's #1380 — verb — dokeo — dok-eh'-o )

primarily, "to be of opinion, think, suppose," also signifies "to seem, be accounted, reputed," translated "accounted" in Mark 10:42 ; Luke 22:24 . It is not used ironically here, nor in Galatians 2:2,6,9 , "those who were of repute." See REPUTE , SEEM , SUPPOSE , THINK.

A — 2: ἐλλογέω
(Strong's #1677 — Verb — ellogeo — el-log-eh'-o )

(or-AO) "to put to a person's account," Philemon 1:18 , is used of sin in Romans 5:13 , "reckon" (AV, "impute"). See IMPUTE , No. 2.

A — 3: ἡγέομαι
(Strong's #2233 — Verb — hegeomai — hayg-eh'-om-ahee )

primarily signifies "to lead;" then, "to consider;" it is translated "accounting" in Hebrews 11:26 , RV (AV, "esteeming"); 2 Peter 3:15 , "account." See CHIEF , COUNT , ESTEEM , GOVERNOR , JUDGE , RULE , SUPPOSE THINK.

A — 4: λογίζομαι
(Strong's #3049 — Verb — logizomai — log-id'-zom-ahee )

primarily signifies "to reckon," whether by calculation or imputation, e.g., Galatians 3:6 (RV, "reckoned"); then, to deliberate, and so to suppose, "account," Romans 8:36 ; 14:14 (AV, "esteemeth"); John 11:50 ; 1 Corinthians 4:1 ; Hebrews 11:19 ; (AV, "consider"); Acts 19:27 ("made of no account;" AV, "despised"); 1 Peter 5:12 (AV, "suppose"). It is used of love in 1 Corinthians 13:5 , as not taking "account" of evil, RV (AV, "thinketh"). In 2 Corinthians 3:5 the Apostle uses it in repudiation of idea that he and fellow-servants of God are so self-sufficient as to "account anything" (RV) as from themselves (AV, "think"), i.e., as to attribute anything to themselves. Cp. 2 Corinthians 12:6 . In 2 Timothy 4:16 it is used of laying to a person's "account" (RV) as a charge against him (AV, "charge").

Note: In Philippians 4:8 it signifies "to think upon a matter by way of taking account of its character" (RV marg.). See CONCLUDE , COUNT , CHARGE , ESTEEM , IMPUTE , NUMBER , REASON , RECKON , SUPPOSE , THINK.

A — 5: καταξιόω
(Strong's #2661 — Verb — kataxioo — kat-ax-ee-o'-o )

denotes "to account worthy" (kata, "intensive," axios, "worthy"), "to judge worthy," Luke 20:35 ; some mss. have it in Luke 21:36 (so the AV); the most authentic mss. have the verb katischuo, "to prevail;" Acts 5:41 , "were counted worthy;" so 2 Thessalonians 1:5 .

A — 6: ἐξουθενέω
(Strong's #1848 — Verb — exoutheneo — ex-oo-then-eh'-o )

"to make of no account," frequently signifies "to despise." In 1 Corinthians 6:4 , it is used, not in a contemptuous sense, but of gentile judges, before whom the saints are not to go to law with one another, such magistrates having no place, and therefore being "of no account" (RV), in the church. The Apostle is not speaking of any believers as "least esteemed" (AV). In 2 Corinthians 10:10 , for AV, "contemptible," the RV suitably has "of no account." See DESPISE.

B — 1: λόγος
(Strong's #3056 — Noun Masculine — logos — log'-os )

"a word or saying," also means "an account which one gives by word of mouth" (cp. No. 4), Matthew 12:36 ; Matthew 18:23 , RV, "reckoning;" Matthew 16:2 ; Acts 19:40 ; 20:24 (AV, "count"); Romans 14:12 ; Philippians 4:17 ; Hebrews 13:17 ; 1 Peter 4:5 .
