wôk ( περιπατεῖν , peripateı́n ): Aside from its frequent occurrence in the usual sense, the word "walk" is used figuratively of conduct and of spiritual states. (1) Observance of laws or customs: "Thou teachest all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs" ( Acts 21:21 ). (2) Of the spiritual life: "If we walk in the light, as he is in the light" (1 John 1:7 ); "That like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life" (Romans 6:4 ); "Walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh" (Galatians 5:16 ); "For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7 ).
