mag´ni - fı̄ (Hiphil of גּדל , gādhal ; μεγαλύω , megalúnō , "to make great," "extol," "celebrate in praise"): Used especially of exaltation of the name, mercy, and other attributes of God ( Genesis 19:19 ; 2 Samuel 7:26 ; Psalm 35:27 ; Psalm 40:16 ; Psalm 70:4 ; Luke 1:46 ; Acts 10:46 ); of God's "word" (Psalm 138:2 ); or of Christ (Acts 19:17 ; Philippians 1:20 ). Men also can be "magnified" (Joshua 4:14 ; 1 Chronicles 29:25 , etc.). In Romans 11:13 , "magnify mine office," the word (Greek, doxázō ) is changed in the Revised Version (British and American) to "glorify."
