Thayer's Expanded Definition

διέξοδος, διεξοδου, ; from Herodotus down; a way out through, outlet, exit: διέξοδοι τῶν ὁδῶν, Matthew 22:9, literally, ways through which ways go out, i. e. according to the context and the design of the parable places before the city where the roads from the country terminate, therefore outlets of the country highways, the same being also their entrances; (cf. Obadiah 1:14; Ezekiel 21:21; the R. V. renders it partings of the highways). The phrase figuratively represents the territory of heathen nations, into which the apostles were about to go forth (as is well shown by Fischer, De vitiis lexamples N. T., p. 634ff). Used of the boundaries of countries, it is equivalent to the Hebrew תּוצָאות, Numbers 34:4f, 8f, and often in the book of Joshua (cf. Rieder, Die zusammen gesetzten Verba as above with p. 18. Others understand the crossings or thoroughfares here to represent the most frequented spots.)

STRONGS NT 1327a: διερμηνεία διερμηνεία, διερμηνειας, (διερμηνεύω, which see), interpretation: of obscure utterances, 1 Corinthians 12:10 L text (not yet found elsewhere.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Magd 12.11 (B.C. 217) διέξοδος is used for the ";conclusion"; of a trial : it is prayed that men who have wrongfully taken possession of land should not be allowed to get in the harvest ἕως δὲ τοῦ διέξοδον λαβεῖν τὴν κρίσιν μὴ θερίζειν αὐτούς This rather supports Grimm’s view of Matthew 22:9, ";the issues of the streets,"; i.e. where they lead out from the city into the country. Cf. Aristeas 105, where, as Thackeray (Trans. p. 23 n..3) points out, the διέξοδοι, the main streets leading out of the city, and the δίοδοι, cross-streets, seem to be distinguished. In Vettius Valens, p. 334.16, we have ἐγὼ δὲ τούτου φρουρίου ἐκκόψας τινὰ μέρη πυλῶν τοῖς βουλομένοις τὴν διέξοδον ἐμήνυσα πλέον. There is a curious derivative in P Brem 73.4 (ap. Chrest. I. p. 277) (c. A.D. 117) περισσὸν ἡγοῦμαι διεξωδέστερον ὑμεῖν γράφειν, which Wilcken notes = διεξοδικώτερον, ";ausführlicher.";
