Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐκεῖ, adverb of place, there;

a. properly: Matthew 2:13, 15; Matthew 5:24, and frequent. In Luke 13:28; ἐκεῖ is not used for ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ followed by ὅταν (at that time ... when etc.), but means in that place whither ye have been banished; cf. Meyer at the passage οἱ ἐκεῖ, namely, ὄντες, standing there, Matthew 26:71 (Tr marginal reading αὐτοί ἐκεῖ). It answers to a relative adverb: οὗ τό πνεῦμα, ἐκεῖ ἐλευθερία, 2 Corinthians 3:17 Rec.; Matthew 6:21; Matthew 18:20; Matthew 24:28; Mark 6:10; Luke 12:34; Hebraistically, where a preceding adverb or relative pronoun has already attracted the verb, ἐκεῖ is added to this verb pleonastically: Revelation 12:6 G T Tr WH (ὅπου ἔχει ἐκεῖ τόπον), Revelation 12:14 (ὅπου τρέφεται ἐκεῖ); cf. Deuteronomy 4:5, 14, 26; 1 Macc. 14:34, and what was said, p. 86{b}, 5 on the pronoun αὐτός after a relative.

b. by a negligent use common also in the classics it stands after verbs of motion for ἐκεῖσε, thither: so after ἀπέρχομαι, Matthew 2:22; μεταβαίνω, Matthew 17:20; ὑπάγω, John 11:8; ἔρχομαι, John 18:3; προπέμπομαι, Romans 15:24; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., pp. 43f, 128; Hermann on Sophocles Antig. 515; Trachin. 1006; Alexander Buttmann (1873) on Philoct. 481; Winers Grammar, § 54, 7; Buttmann, 71 (62) and 378 (324).

ἐκεῖ ,

adv.,

[in LXX chiefly for H8033;]

1. properly, of place, there: Matthew 2:13; Matthew 5:24, al.; οἱ ἐ ., Matthew 26:71; οὗ . . . ., Matthew 6:21; Matthew 18:20; Matthew 24:28, Mark 6:10, Luke 12:34; pleonastic, ὅπου . . . . (= H8033 H834, Deuteronomy 4:5, al.), Revelation 12:6; Revelation 12:14 (cf. Bl., § 50, 4).

2. As often in cl. (Hdt., Thuc., al.), with verbs of motion, for ἐκεῖσε , thither: Matthew 2:22; Matthew 17:20; Matthew 24:28; Matthew 26:36, Mark 6:33, Luke 12:18; Luke 17:37; Luke 21:2, John 11:8; John 18:2-3, Romans 15:24.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Eleph 1.14 (B.C. 311–10) (= Selections, p. 4) ὡς ἐκεῖ τοῦ συναλλάγματος γεγενημένου, ";on the ground that the agreement had been come to there,"; P Fay 110.13 (A.D. 94) [ν ]α τὰ πρόβατα ἐκεῖ κοιμηθῆι, ib. 118.24 (A.D. 110) ε ̣͗χ᾽ ἐκ ̣ῖ ἕ [ως ] ποτίσῃς τὼ ἐπτάρουρον τοῦ ἐλαιῶνο [ς, ";stay there till you have watered the seven-acre at the olive-yard,"; P Ryl II. 239.9 (mid. iii/A.D.) ἐπίμινον τοῖς ἐκεῖ, ";stay on for the men there."; In the boy’s letter P Oxy I. 119.12 (ii/iii A.D.) (= Selections, p. 103) the word is used somewhat pleonastically—πεπλάνηκαν ἡμῶς (l. ἡμᾶς) ἐκε [ ], τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ι ̄β ̄ ὅτι (l. ὅτε) ἔπλευσες, ";they deceived us there on the 12th, the day you sailed."; For the laxer use = ἐκεῖσε, as in Romans 15:24, cf. P Meyer 20.46 (1st half iii/A.D.) ἵνα ἐκ ̣εῖ πέμπω τὰς ἐπιστολάς. For a contrast with ἐνταῦθα, see Preisigke 1002.10 f. (time of Diocletian?) τὰ ἐκεῖ θαύματ [α ] εἶδον καὶ τὰ ἐνταῦθα. The word is MGr.
