Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐγκαινίζω (T WH ἐνκαινίζω, see ἐν, III 3): 1 aorist ἐνεκαινισα; perfect passive ἐγκεκαινισμαι; a word exclusively Biblical and ecclesiastical (Winers Grammar, 33); to innovate, i. e.:

1. to renew: 2 Chronicles 15:8.

2. to do anew, again: σημεῖα, Sir. 33:6 (Sir. 36:6).

3. to initiate, consecrate, dedicate, (Deuteronomy 20:5; 1 Kings 8:63; 1 Samuel 11:14, etc.): διαθήκην, Hebrews 9:18; ὁδόν, Hebrews 10:20.

STRONGS NT 1457a: ἐγκακέω ἐγκακέω, ἐγκάκω ((see below); 1 aorist ἐνεκάκησα; (κακός); (properly, to behave badly in; hence) to be weary in anything, or to lose courage, flag, faint: adopted by L T Tr WH in place of R G ἐκκακέω (which see) in Luke 18:1; 2 Corinthians 4:1, 16; Galatians 6:9; Ephesians 3:13; 2 Thessalonians 3:13 — except that T WH write ἐνκακέω in Luke 18:1; Galatians 6:9; Ephesians 3:13; so WH in 2 Thessalonians 3:13, also; see ἐν, III. 3; (cf. Tdf.'s note on 2 Corinthians 4:1; Meyer ibid., who thinks that ἐκκακέω may have been a colloquial form. See the full exhibition of the usage of the manuscripts given by Dr. Gregory in his Proleg. to Tdf. edition 8, p. 78.) (Found a few times in Symm. (Genesis 27:46; Numbers 21:5; Isaiah 7:16; also Proverbs 3:11 Theod.); Clement of Rome, 2 Cor. 2, 2 [ET]; in secular writings only in Polybius 4, 19, 10 τό πέμπειν τάς βοηθείας ἐνεκακησαν they culpably neglected to send aid (add Philo de confus. lingg. § 13 (Mang. i., 412, 36) οὐκ ἐκκακουμενος; ἐκναμφθην.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

If we can trust the restoration in P Par 16.24 (B.C. 127) εἴπαμεν κα [τα ]κολουθεῖν τοῖς ἐξ ἀρχῆς ἐθισμοῖς καὶ μη [θὲν ἐνκαινί ]ζειν, this verb can no longer be regarded as ";exclusively bibl. and eccl."; (Grimm-Thayer). In the above passage, it will be noticed, it has the meaning of ";make no innovation"; as compared with ";initiate,"; ";inaugurate,"; in Hebrews 9:18; Hebrews 10:20. LS cite ἐγκαινιάζομαι from CIG IV. 8660.
