A — 1: ἀγαθοποιέω
(Strong's #15 — Verb — agathopoieo — ag-ath-op-oy-eh'-o )

"to do good" (agathos, "good," poieo, "to do"), is used (a) of such activity in general, 1 Peter 2:15 , "well-doing;" 1 Peter 2:20 , "do well;" 1 Peter 3:6,17 ; 3 John 1:11 , "doeth good;" (b) of "acting for another's benefit," Mark 3:4 ; Luke 6:9,33,35 .

A — 2: καλοποιέω
(Strong's #2569 — Verb — kalopoieo — kal-op-oy-eh'-o )

Notes: (1) The distinction between Nos. 1 and 2 follows that between agathos and kalos (see GOOD). (2) In John 11:12 , AV, sozo (Passive Voice, "to be saved"), is rendered "he shall do well" (RV, "he will recover").
