Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐκτρέπω: passive (present ἐκτρέπομαι); 2 aorist ἐξετραπην; 2 future ἐκτραπήσομαι;

1. to turn or twist out; passive in a medical sense, in a figurative sense of the limbs: ἵνα μή τό χωλόν ἐκτραπῇ, lest it be wrenched out of (its proper) place, dislocated (R. V. marginal reading put out of joint) (see examples of this use from medical writers in Stephanus' Thesaurus iii. col. 607 d.), i. e. lest he who is weak in a state of grace fall therefrom, Hebrews 12:13 (but Lünem., Delitzsch, others, still adhere to the meaning turn aside, go astray; cf. A. V., R. V. text).

2. to turn off or aside; passive in a middle sense (cf. Buttmann, 192 (166f)), to turn oneself aside, to be turned aside; (intransitive) to turn aside; Hesychius: ἐξετράπησαν. ἐξέκλιναν (τῆς ὁδοῦ, Lucian, dial. deor. 25, 2; Aelian v. h. 14, 49 (48); ἔξω τῆς ὁδοῦ, Arrian exp.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Ryl II. 133.22 (A.D. 33) the mention of the danger of fields being ";left unsown";—εἰς ἄσπορον ἐκτραπῆν [α ]ι —shows the verb in a more general sense than in the possible medical reference in Hebrews 12:13 ἵνα μὴ τὸ χωλὸν ἐκτραπῇ, ";be put out of joint"; (RV mg.). For the meaning ";turn aside,"; as in 1 Timothy 1:6, we may compare Epict. i. 6. 42 οἱ δ᾽ ὑπ᾽ ἀγεννείας εἰς μέμψεις καὶ [τὰ ] ἐγκλήματα τῷ θεῷ ἐκτρεπόμενοι, and for the acc. constr., as in 1 Timothy 6:20, see Oenoanda col. 29, 7 . δεῖ τοὺς σοφιστικοὺς λόγους (cited by Nägeli, p. 19), and Musonius p. 26.4 τὰ μὲν ἀληθῶς κακὰ πάσῃ μηχανῇ ἐκτρέπεσθαι.
