Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐντέλλω: (τέλλω equivalent to τελέω); several times in the poets (Pindar Olymp. 7, 73) and the later writers (ἐντεταλκε, Josephus, Antiquities 7, 14, 5 (but Bekker ἐντεταλθαι); καθώς ἐντέταλται σοι, passively, Sir. 7:31); generally, and so always in the N. T., deponent middle ἐντέλλομαι; future ἐντελοῦμαι; 1 aorist ἐνετειλάμην; perfect 3 person singular ἐντέταλται (Acts 13:47); the Sept. very often for צִוָּה; to order, command to be done, enjoin: περί τίνος, Hebrews 11:22; ἐνετείλατο λέγων, Matthew 15:4 (R T); τίνι, Acts 1:2; (with λέγων added, Matthew 17:9); with οὕτω added, Acts 13:47; καθώς, (Mark 11:6 R L marginal reading); John 14:31 R G T; followed by an infinitive Matthew 19:7; τίνι, followed by an infinitive (Buttmann, § 141, 2; 275 (237)), John 8:5 Rec.; τίνι, ἵνα (cf. Buttmann, 237 (204)), Mark 13:34 (Josephus, Antiquities 7, 14, 5; 8, 14, 2); τίνι τί, Matthew 28:20; Mark 10:3; John 15:14, 17; τίνι περί τίνος, the genitive of person, Matthew 4:6; Luke 4:10, from Psalm 90:11ff (ff). διαθήκην ἐντέλλεσθαι πρός τινα, to command to be delivered to one, Hebrews 9:20; cf. ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ πρός λαόν αὐτοῦ, Sir. 45:3; the phrase ἐντέλλεσθαι (τίνι) διαθήκην occurs also in Joshua 23:16; Judges 2:20; Jeremiah 11:4; Psalm 110:9 (), but in another sense, as appears from the full expression διαθήκην, ἥν ἐνετείλατο ὑμῖν ποιεῖν, Deuteronomy 4:13. (Synonym: see κελεύω, at the end.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this common verb = ";give orders,"; ";charge,"; it is sufficient to cite P Grenf I. 30.3 (B.C. 103) οἶς καὶ ἐντετάλμεθ [α ] ἀσπάσεσθαι ὑμᾶς παρ᾽ ἡμῶν φιλοφρόνως, P Tebt I. 37.11 (B.C. 73) ἐν ̣τέταλταί μοι παραλαβὼν στρατιώτας ἐκπορθῆσαι αὐτούς, P Ryl II. 229.5 (A.D. 38) Ὠφελίωνι ἐνετειλάμην ἵνα καὶ αὐτὸς δοῖ ἑτέραν (sc. ὄνον), ib. 241.10 (iii/A.D.) περὶ ὧν σοι ἐνετίλατο Σ. The later juristic usage = ";invest one with legal powers,"; is discussed by Mitteis Papyruskunde, p. 261, and Wenger Stellvertretung, p. 105.
