take prisoner, D.S. 14.37, LXX 4 Ki. 24.14, al.: more freq. in Med., αἰχμαλωτίζομαι J. BJ 4.8.1: fut. -ίσομαι ib. 2.4: aor. ᾐχμαλωτισάμην ib. 1.22.1, D.S. 13.24: pf. ᾐχμαλώτισμαι J. BJ 4.9.8 (with v.l. -σάμενοι); also in pass. sense, SIG 763(Cyzicus).

Thayer's Expanded Definition

αἰχμαλωτίζω; 1 future passive αἰχμαλωτισθήσομαι;

a. equivalent to αἰχμάλωτον ποιῶ, which the earlier Greeks use.

b. to lead away captive: followed by εἰς with the accusative of place, Luke 21:24 (1 Macc. 10:33; Tobit 1:10).

c. figuratively, to subjugate, bring under control: 2 Corinthians 10:5 (on which passage see νόημα, 2); τινα τίνι, Romans 7:23 (yet T Tr א etc. insert ἐν before the dative); to take captive one's mind, captivate: γυναικάρια, 2 Timothy 3:6 (not Rec.) (Judith 16:9 τό κάλλος αὐτῆς ᾐχμαλώτισε ψυχήν αὐτοῦ). The word is used also in the Sept., Diodorus, Josephus, Plutarch, Arrian, Heliodorus; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 442; (Winer's Grammar, 91 (87); Ellicott on 2 Timothy, the passage cited).
