Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐκπορνεύω: 1 aorist participle feminine ἐκπορνεύσασα; (the prefix ἐκ seems to indicate a lust that gluts itself, satisfies itself completely); the Sept. often for זָנָה; "to go a whoring, 'give oneself over to fornication'" A. V.: Jude 1:7. Not found in secular writings. (Test xii. Patr. test. Dan § 5; Pollux 6, 30 (126).)
