* (a) Compounds of ago.

1: ἀνάγω
(Strong's #321 — Verb — anago — an-ag'-o )

lit., "to lead up" (ana, "up," ago, "to lead"), is used, in the Middle Voice, as a nautical term, signifying "to set sail, put to sea;" "to depart," Acts 27:12 , AV (RV, "put to sea"); Acts 28:10 (RV, "sailed"); ver. 11 (RV, "set sail"). Cp. epanago, in Luke 5:3 , to put out. See BRING , No. 11.

2: παράγω
(Strong's #3855 — Verb — parago — par-ag'-o )

used intransitively, means "to pass by" (para, "by, beside"), and is so translated everywhere in the Gospels, except in the AV of Matthew 9:27 , "departed;" RV, "passed by." Outside the Gospels it is used in its other meaning, "to pass away," 1 Corinthians 7:31 ; 1 John 2:8 (RV), 17 See PASS.

3: ὑπάγω
(Strong's #5217 — Verb — hupago — hoop-ag'-o )

"to go," translated "depart" in James 2:16 , AV, primarily and lit. meant "to lead under" (hupo, "under"); in its later use, it implied a "going," without noise or notice, or by stealth. In this passage the idea is perhaps that of a polite dismissal, "Go your ways." See GET , GO.

* (b) Compounds of erchomai.

4: ἀπέρχομαι
(Strong's #565 — Verb — aperchomai — ap-erkh'-om-ahee )

lit., "to come or go away" (apo), hence, "to set off, depart," e.g., Matthew 8:18 , is frequent in the Gospels and Acts; Revelation 18:14 , RV, "are gone." See COME , No. 11 (Note), GO, PASS.

5: διέρχομαι
(Strong's #1330 — Verb — dierchomai — dee-er'-khom-ahee )

"to come or go through, to pass through to a place," is translated "departed" in Acts 13:14 , AV; RV, "passing through;" elsewhere it is usually translated "pass through" or "go through." See COME , No. 5.

6: ἐξέρχομαι
(Strong's #1831 — Verb — exerchomai — ex-er'-khom-ahee )

denotes "to come out, or go out of, to go forth." It is frequently translated by the verb "to depart," e.g., Matthew 9:31 ; in Luke 4:42 , for the AV, "He departed and went (No. 8)," the RV has "He came out and went;" in Luke 9:6 the AV and RV agree. See COME , No. 3.

7: κατέρχομαι
(Strong's #2718 — Verb — katerchomai — kat-er'-khom-ahee )

"to come down" (its usual meaning), is translated "departed" in Acts 13:4 , AV (RV, "went down"). See COME , No. 7.

* (c) Poreuo and a compound.

8: πορεύομαι
(Strong's #4198 — Verb — poreuo — por-yoo'-om-ahee )

akin to poros, "a passage," in the Middle Voice signifies "to go on one's way, to depart from one place to another." In some places, where the AV has the verb "to depart," the RV translates by "to go one's way," e.g., Matthew 2:9 , "went their way;" Matthew 11:7 ; 24:1 , "was going on His way." In the following the RV has the verb "to go," for the AV "depart," Luke 4:42 (latter part of verse); Luke 13:31 ; John 16:7 ; 2 Timothy 4:10 . In Luke 21:8 , "go (after)," is said of disciples or partisans. In some places both AV and RV translate by the verb "to depart," e.g., Matthew 19:15 ; 25:41 ; Acts 5:41 ; Acts 22:21 . This verb is to be distinguished from others signifying "to go." It is best rendered, as often as possible, "to go on one's way." See GO , JOURNEY , WALK.

9: ἐκπορεύομαι
(Strong's #1607 — Verb — ekporeuo — ek-por-yoo'-om-ahee )

ek, "from," in the Middle and Passive, "to proceed from or forth," more expressive of a definite course than simply "to go forth," is translated "go forth," in Mark 6:11 ; "went out" in Matthew 20:29 , RV (AV, "departed"); both have "depart" in Acts 25:4 . It is frequently translated by the verb "to proceed," and is often best so rendered, e.g., in Revelation 9:17,18 , RV, for AV, "issued." See COME , No. 33.

* (d) Compounds of choreo.

10: ἀναχωρέω
(Strong's #402 — Verb — anachoreo — an-akh-o-reh'-o )

"to go back, recede, retire" (ana, "back or up," choreo, "to make room for, betake oneself," choros, "a place"), is translated "departed" in Matthew 2:12-14 ; 4:12 (RV, "withdrew"); so in Matthew 14:13 ; 15:21 , but "departed" in Matthew 27:5 ; "withdrew" in John 6:15 . In Matthew 2:22 the RV has "withdrew," which is preferable to the AV, "turned aside." The most suitable translation wherever possible, is by the verb "to withdraw." See PLACE , B, No. 1, GO, No. 15, TURN, Note (1), WITHDRAW.

11: ἀποχωρέω
(Strong's #672 — Verb — apochoreo — ap-okh-o-reh'-o )

"to depart from" (apo), is so translated in Matthew 7:23 ; Luke 9:39 ; Acts 13:13 (both AV and RV). Some mss. have it in Luke 20:20 .

12: ἐκχωρέω
(Strong's #1633 — Verb — ekchoreo — ek-kho-reh'-o )

signifies "to depart out" (ek), "to leave a place," Luke 21:21 .

(Strong's #5563 — Verb — chorizo — kho-rid'-zo )

"to put apart, separate," means, in the Middle Voice, "to separate oneself, to depart from," Acts 1:4 ; 18:1,2 ; in marital affairs, 1 Corinthians 7:10,11,15 ; "departed" (RV corrects to "was parted"), Philemon 1:15 . The verb is also used in Matthew 19:6 ; Mark 10:9 ; Romans 8:35,39 ; Hebrews 7:26 . See PUT , No. 14, SEPARATE.

14: ἀποχωρίζω

signifies "to separate off" (apo); in the Middle Voice, "to depart from," Acts 15:39 , AV, "departed asunder;" RV, "parted asunder;" Revelation 6:14 , RV, "was removed." See PART , REMOVE.

19: μεταίρω
(Strong's #3332 — Verb — metairo — met-ah'ee-ro )

"to make a distinction, to remove, to lift away" (in its transitive sense), is used intransitively in the NT, signifying "to depart," and is said of Christ, in Matthew 13:53 ; 19:1 . It could be well translated "removed."
