Thayer's Expanded Definition
 γεύω: (cf. Latin gusto, German kosten; Curtius, § 131); to cause to taste, to give one a taste of, τινα ( Genesis 25:30). In the N. T. only the middle γεύομαι: future γεύσομαι; 1aorist ἐγευσάμην;

1. to taste, try the flavor of: Matthew 27:34; contrary to better Greek usage (cf. Winer s Grammar, § 30,7c. (and p. 36; Anthol. Pal. 6,120)) with the accusative of the object: John 2:9.

2. to taste, i. e. perceive the flavor of, partake of, enjoy: τίνος, Luke 14:24 (γεύσεται μου τοῦ δείπνου, i. e. shall partake of my banquet); hence, as in Greek writings from Homer down, equivalent to to feel, make trial of, experience: τίνος, Hebrews 6:4; ῤῆμα Θεοῦ, Hebrews 6:5, (τῆς γνώσεως, Clement of Rome, 1 Corinthians 36,2 [ET]). as in Chaldean, Syriac, and rabbinical writers, γεύεσθαι τοῦ θανάτου ( Winer's Grammar, 33 (32)): Matthew 16:28; Mark 9:1; Luke 9:27; John 8:52; Hebrews 2:9; (cf. Wetstein on Matthew , the passage cited; Meyer on John , the passage cited; Bleek, Lünem., Alford on Hebrews , the passage cited), followed by ὅτι: 1 Peter 2:3 ( Psalm 33:9 (Psalm 34:9>).

3. to take food, eat: absolutely, Acts 10:10; Acts 20:11; cf. Kypke, Observations, ii., p. 47; to take nourishment, eat — (but substantially as above), with the genitive μηδενός, Acts 23:14; with the ellipsis of a genitive denoting unlawful food, Colossians 2:21.

Abbott-Smith Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament

γεύω ,

[in LXX chiefly for H2938;]

to make to taste. Mid., to taste, eat: absol., Acts 10:10; Acts 20:11, Colossians 2:21; c. gen., Matthew 27:34, Luke 14:24, Acts 23:14; c. acc (not cl., but v. Westc., Heb., l.c.; M, Pr., 66, 245), John 2:9. Metaph., Hebrews 6:4; ῥῆμα θεοῦ , Hebrews 6:5 (on case, v. supr., and cf. Milligan, NTD, 68); θανάτου (cf.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For γ . with genitive, cf. the standing formula in the libelli of the Decian persecution (A.D. 250) τῶν ἱερῶν ἐγευσάμην , e.g. P Oxy IV. 658.12 (= Selections, p. 116). With the acc., as in John 2:9 and in the LXX fairly often, it may be cited from Preisigke 1106 (Ptolemaic), where sundry officials καὶ οἱ συμπόσιον γευόμενοι join in a complimentary monument to their entertainer. See Abbott, Joh. Gr. p. 76 f.; and on the change of construction in Hebrews 6:4 f. see Milligan Documents, p. 68. The verb is used absolutely (as in Acts 10:10) in Preisigke 1944 (inscr. on a cup—Roman age) ἐκ τούτου ἐγευσάμην . The verbal occurs, negatived, in P Giss I. 19.12 (ii/A.D.) [γ ]ευστος ἐκοιμώμην , ";I was going to bed without bite or sup."; The noun from a compound may be observed in a small undated fragment, CPHerm 27 προσγεύσεως τ [ . . . : ἀρτοκόπῳ appears just below. MGr has γεύομαι still, = ";taste,"; ";eat.";
