Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions


inf. -ζῆν, return to life, be alive again, Luke 15:24; Luke 15:32, Sotionp.183 W.: in form ἀναερτ-ζώω Nic. Fr. 70.5.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀναζάω, (ῶ: 1 aorist ἀνέζησα; a word found only in the N. T. and ecclesiastical writings; to live again, recover life;

a. properly, in Rec. of Romans 14:9; Revelation 20:5.

b. tropically, one is said ἀναζῆν who has been νεκρός in a tropical sense; α. to be restored to a correct life: of one who returns to a better moral state, Luke 15:24 (WH marginal reading ἔζησεν) ((A. V. is alive again), cf. Meyer at the passage), 32 (T Tr WH ἔζησε). (beta) to revive, regain strength and vigor: Romans 7:9; sin is alive, indeed, and vigorous among men ever since the fall of Adam; yet it is destitute of power (νεκρά ἐστι) in innocent children ignorant of the law; but when they come to a knowledge of the law, sin recovers its power in them also. Others less aptly explain ἀνέζησε here began to live, sprang into life (German lebte auf).
