Adv., as pl. of δεῦρο, come hither! in Hom. with pl. imper. (exc. δεῦτ' ἄγε Φαιήκων ἡγήτορες Od. 8.11), either expressed, δεῦτ' ἄγετ' Il. 7.350, al.; or understood, δεῦτε, φίλοι 13.481; δεῦθ', ἵνα.. ἴδησθε Od. 8.30: rarely in Lyr., Sapph. 60,65, and Trag., δεῦτε, λείπετε στέγος E. Med. 894: in later Prose, δ. οἰκοδομήσωμεν LXX Genesis 11:4; δ. ἴδετε Matthew 28:6; δ. καὶ ἀκούσατε Arr. Epict. 3.23.6; δ. πρός τινα Plu. Cor. 33.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

δεῦτε, adverb, used when two or more are addressed (cf. Buttmann, 70 (61)); perhaps from δευῥ ἰτε (yet see Alexander Buttmann (1873) Gram. 21te Aufl. § 115 Anm. 8), see δεῦρο, 1;

1. from Homer down, come hither, come here, come: followed by an imperative, δεῦτε, κληρονομήσατε, Matthew 25:34; δεῦτε, ἴδετε, Matthew 28:6; John 4:29; δεῦτε, ἀριστήσατε, John 21:12; δεῦτε, συνάχθητε (Rec. δεῦτε καί συνάγεσθε), Revelation 19:17. δεῦτε ἀπίσω μου come after me, be my disciples: Matthew 4:19; Mark 1:17 (equivalent to אַחֲרַי לְכוּ, 2 Kings 6:19); δεῦτε εἰς τούς γάμους, Matthew 22:4; εἰς ἔρημον τόπον, Mark 6:31; δεῦτε πρός με, Matthew 11:28.

2. It gets the force of an interjection, "Come! Come now!" followed by a hortatory subjunctive: δεῦτε, ἀποκτείνωμεν, Matthew 21:38; Mark 12:7 and R G in Luke 20:14. (the Sept. mostly for לְכוּ, sometimes for בֹּאוּ.)
