Thayer's Expanded Definition

διαδίδωμι; future διαδιδώσω (Revelation 17:13 Rec.); 1 aorist διέδωκα; 2 aorist imperative διάδος; passive, imperfect 3 person singular διεδίδοτο (Acts 4:35), for which L T Tr WH read διεδίδετο (see ἀποδίδωμι);

1. to distribute, divide among several (cf. διά, C. 3): τί, Luke 11:22; τί τίνι, Luke 18:22 (Lachmann δός); John 6:11 (Tdf. ἔδωκεν); passive Acts 4:35. Its meaning is especially illustrated by Xenophon, Cyril 1, 3, 7 τόν Κυρον λαβόντα τῶν κρεῶν διαδιδοναι τοῖς ... θεραπευταις ... τοιαῦτα ἐποίει, ἕως διεδιδου πάντα ἔλαβε κρέα.

2. to give over, deliver: τί τίνι, Revelation 17:13; but here G L T Tr WH have restored διδοασι (cf. δίδωμι, at the beginning).
