Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐκφύω; 2 aorist passive ἐξεφυην (Winers Grammar, 90 (86); Buttmann, 68 (60); Krüger, § 40, under the word φύω; (Veitch, ibid.)); (from Homer down); to generate or produce from; to cause to grow out: ὅταν κλάδος ... τά φύλλα ἐκφύῃ (subjunctive present), when the branch has become tender and puts forth leaves, R (not Rst) G T WH in Matthew 24:32 and Mark 13:28; (others, retaining the same accentuation, regard it as 2 aorist active subjunctive intransitive, with τά φύλλα as subject; but against the change of subject see Meyer or Weiss). But Fritzsche, Lachmann, Treg., others have with reason restored (after Erasmus) ἐκφύῃ (2 aorist passive subjunctive), which Griesbach had approved: when the leaves hare grown out — so that τά φύλλα is the subject.
