Thayer's Expanded Definition

δεικνύω (δεικνύειν, Matthew 16:21; δεικνύεις, John 2:18; τοῦ δεικνύοντός, Revelation 22:8 (not Tdf.)) and δείκνυμι (1 Corinthians 12:31; Matthew 4:8; John 5:20; cf. Buttmann, 45 (39)); future δείξω; 1 aorist ἔδειξα; 1 aorist passive participle δειχθεις (Hebrews 8:5); the Sept. mostly for הִרְאָה; to show, exhibit;

1. properly, to show, i. e. expose to the eyes: τίνι τί, Matthew 4:8; Luke 4:5; Luke 20:24 (for Rec. ἐπιδείξατέ); (R G L, but T omits; Tr brackets WH reject the verse); Mark 14:15; John 20:20; Acts 7:3; ὁδόν τίνι, metaphorically, in which one ought to go, i. e. to teach one what he ought to do, 1 Corinthians 12:31; κατά τόν τύπον τόν δειχθέντα σοι, Hebrews 8:5; ἑαυτόν δεικνύναι τίνι to expose oneself to the view of one, Matthew 8:4; Mark 1:44; Luke 5:14; δεῖξον ἡμῖν τόν πατέρα render the Father visible to us, John 14:8f; of things presented to one in a vision: τίνι τί, Revelation 17:1; Revelation 21:9; Revelation 22:1, 8; δεῖξαι τίνι, δεῖ γενέσθαι, Revelation 1:1; Revelation 4:1; Revelation 22:6. to show, equivalent to to bring to pass, produce what can be seen (German sehen lassen); of miracles performed in presence of others to be seen by them: σημεῖον, John 2:18, (Baruch 6 (i. e., epistle of Jeremiah) 66; σῆμα, Homer, Odyssey 3, 174; Iliad 13, 244); ἔργα ἐκ τίνος, works done by the aid of one, John 10:32; τήν ἐπιφάνειαν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, spoken of God, as the author of Christ's visible return, 1 Timothy 6:15; ἔργα δεικνύειν is used differently in John 5:20, to show works to one for him to do.

2. metaphorically,

a. with the accusative of the thing, to give the evidence or proof of a thing: πίστιν, James 2:18; τί ἐκ τίνος, as τήν πίστιν ἐκ τῶν ἔργων, ibid.; τά ἔργα ἐκ τῆς καλῆς ἀναστροφῆς, James 3:13.

b. to show by words, to teach: followed by ὅτι, Matthew 16:21 (διδάσκειν in Mark 8:31 for δεικνύειν); followed by an infinitive Acts 10:28. (Compare: ἀναδείκνυμι, ἀποδείκνυμι, ἐνδείκνυμι, ἐπιδείκνυμι, ὑποδείκνυμι.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb is not so common as we might have expected, but for the ordinary meaning we may cite P Oxy III. 471.75 (ii/A.D.) σύνβολα δεικνύντα , ";showing signs,"; and for the metaphorical, as James 2:18; James 3:13, ib. II. 237vi. 21 (A.D. 186) ο ̣ ̣δ ̣ε ̣μίαν μὲν οὔτε ὕβριν οὔτε ἄλλο ἀδίκημα εἰς αὑτὸν ἁπλῶς ἐφ᾽ ᾧ μέμφεται οεῖξαι ε ̣͗χων , ";he could not indeed cite a single insult or any other act of injustice against himself with which he charged me"; (Edd.) : cf. ib. I. 67.19 (A.D. 338) εἵν᾽ οὕτως διχθῇ [αὐ ]τῶν ἡ καθ᾽ ἡμῶν [πλεο ]νεξία , ";in this way their aggression against me will be made clear"; (Edd.). A ii/A.D. calculation of the naubion-tax upon catoeci, printed in P Tebt II. p. 339 f., is followed by δέδικ [ται , ";proved,"; written ";in a cursive but probably not different hand"; (Edd.). OGIS 267.16 (iii/B.C.) οἱ μετὰ ταῦτα δεικνύμενοι (στρατηγοί ), where the simplex takes the place of the commoner ἀποδείκνυμι (see s.v.) in this sense. With the use of the verb in John 14:8, etc., we may compare the Christian prayer, P Oxy VIII. 1150.5 (vi/A.D.) δεῖξον τὴν δύναμ [ίν σου . On the Christian sepulchral inscription, P Hamb I. 22.3 ff. (iv/A.D.) υ ]ἱὲ θεοῦ μεγάλοιο τὸν οὐδέποτε δράκεν ἀνὴρ (cf. John 1:18), ὃς τυφλοῖσιν ἔδωκας ἰδεῖν φάος ἠελίοιο , δεῖξον ἐν ἀνθρώποισι κτλ ., the editor remarks that we may either supply φάος after δεῖξον , cf. Isaiah 53:11, or possibly take δεῖξον absolutely as in Numbers 16:30, Psa. 58꞉10 (MT Psalms 59:10 ὁ θεός μου δείξει μοι ἐν τοῖς ἐχθροῖς μου . For the ordinary meaning ";exhibit"; we may cite the rescript of Caracalla, P Giss I. 40ii. 28 (A.D. 215), where the Emperor, from his record an excellent judge of Kultur, lays it down that ἔτι τε καὶ ζω [ ] δεικνύει ἐναντία ἤθη ἀπὸ ἀναστ ̣ροφῆς [πο ]λειτικῆς εἶναι ἀγροίκους Α [ ]γυπτίους . MGr is δείχνω or δείχτω , with meaning unchanged.
