Declare, Declaration

Resource Toolbox
A — 1: ἀναγγέλλω
(Strong's #312 — Verb — anangello — an-ang-el'-lo )

signifies "to announce, report, bring back tidings" (ana, "back," angello, "to announce"). Possibly the ana carries the significance of upward, i.e., heavenly, as characteristic of the nature of the tidings. In the following, either the AV or the RV translates the word by the verb "to declare;" in John 4:25 , RV, "declaree," AV, "tell;" in 16:13-15, RV, "declare," AV, "shew;" in Acts 15:4 , RV, "rehearsed," AV, "declared;" in Acts 19:18 , RV, "declaring," AV, "shewed" (a reference, perhaps, to the destruction of their idols, in consequence of their new faith); in Acts 20:20 , RV, "declaring," AV, "have shewed;" in 1 John 1:5 , RV, "announce," AV, "declare." See REHEARSE , REPORT , SHEW , SPEAK , TELL.

A — 2: ἀπαγγέλλω
(Strong's #518 — Verb — apangello — ap-ang-el'-lo )

signifies "to announce or report from a person or place" (apo, "from"); hence, "to declare, publish;" it is rendered "declare" in Luke 8:47 ; Hebrews 2:12 ; 1 John 1:3 . It is very frequent in the Gospels and Acts; elsewhere, other than the last two places mentioned, only in 1 Thessalonians 1:9 ; 1 John 1:2 . See BRING , A, No. 36.

A — 3: διαγγέλλω
(Strong's #1229 — Verb — diangello — de-ang-gel'-lo )

lit., "to announce through," hence, "to declare fully, or far and wide" (dia, "through"), is translated "declaring" in Acts 21:26 , RV (AV, "to signify"); in Luke 9:60 , RV, "publish abroad" (for AV, "preach"), giving the verb its fuller significance; so in Romans 9:17 , for AV, "declared," See PREACH , SIGNIFY.

A — 4: καταγγέλλω
(Strong's #2605 — Verb — katangello — kat-ang-gel'-lo )

lit., "to report down" (kata, intensive), is ordinarily translated "to preach;" "declare" in Acts 17:23 , AV (RV, "set forth"); in 1 Corinthians 2:1 , RV, "proclaiming," for AV, "declaring." It is nowhere translated by "declare" in the RV. See PREACH , SHOW , SPEAK , TEACH.

see CHARGE , B, No. 8.

(Strong's #1334 — Verb — diegeomai — dee-ayg-eh'-om-ahee )

"to conduct a narration through to the end" (dia, "through," intensive, hegeomai, "to lead"), hence denotes "to recount, to relate in full," Mark 5:16 ; Luke 8:39 ; 9:10 ; Acts 8:33 ; 9:27 ; 12:17 ; in Mark 9:9 ; Hebrews 11:32 , "tell." See SHOW , TELL.

A — 7: ἐκδιηγέομαι
(Strong's #1555 — Verb — ekdiegeomai — ek-dee-ayg-eh'-om-ahee )

properly, "to narrate in full," came to denote, "to tell, declare;" it is used in Acts 13:41 ; 15:3 .

A — 8: ἐξηγέομαι
(Strong's #1834 — Verb — exegeomai — ex-ayg-eh'-om-ahee )

lit., to lead out," signifies "to make known, rehearse, declare," Luke 24:35 (AV, "told;" RV, rehearsed"); Acts 10:8 ; 15:12,14 ; 21:19 . In John 1:18 , in the sentence "He hath declared Him," the other meaning of the verb is in view, to unfold in teaching, "to declare" by making known. See TELL.

A — 9: ὁρίζω
(Strong's #3724 — Verb — horizo — hor-id'-zo )

"to mark off by boundaries," signifies "to determine," usually of time; in Romans 1:4 , Christ is said to have been "marked out" as the Son of God, by the fact of His resurrection; "declared" (RV, marg., "determined). See DEFINE.

For emphanizo, "to declare plainly," Hebrews 11:14 , AV, see MANIFEST , A, No. 2. For phaneroo, see MANIFEST , B, No. 1. For anatithemi, Acts 25:14 , AV, see COMMUNICATE. For "declare glad tidings" see TIDINGS.

B — 1: ἔνδειξις
(Strong's #1732 — Noun Feminine — endeixis — en'-dike-sis )

"a showing, pointing out" (en, "in," deiknumi, "to show"), is said of the "showing forth" of God's righteousness, in Romans 3:25,26 , AV, "to declare;" RV, "to show," and "(for) the showing." In 2 Corinthians 8:24 , "proof;" Philippians 1:28 , "an evident token." See SHOW , TOKEN.

Notes: (1) In Luke 1:1 , diegesis is a "narrative" (RV), not a "declaration" (AV).
