Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐξεγείρω (1 Corinthians 6:14 Lachmann text); future ἐξεγέρω; 1 aorist ἐξήγειρά; to arouse, raise up (from sleep; Sophocles, Euripides, Xenophon, others); from the dead (Aeschylus cho. 495), 1 Corinthians 6:14. to rouse up, stir up, incite: τινα, to resistance, Romans 9:17 (τόν θυμόν τίνος, 2 Macc. 13:4, cf. 2 Chronicles 36:22), where some explain the words ἐξήγειρά σε "I have raised thee up into life, caused thee to exist, or I have raised thee to a public position, set thee up as king" (Josephus, Antiquities 8, 11, 1 βασιλεύς γάρ ἐξεγείρεται ὑπ' ἐμοῦ); but the objection to these interpretations lies in the fact that Paul draws from Romans 9:17 what he says in Romans 9:18, and therefore ἐξεγείρειν must be nearly synonymous with σκληρύνειν (but see Meyer).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the use in 1 Corinthians 6:14 cf. Syll 802.118 (iii/B.C.), where, in connexion with the healing of a man in the Asclepieum, we read—ἐξεγερθεὶς δὲ ὡς ἧν ὑγιής, ἔφα ὄψιν ἰδεῖν. See also Wünsch AF 5.21 (iii/A.D.) ἐν τῷ ἰσα [ρίθμ ]ῳ ὀνομάσω αὐτὸ καὶ οἱ δαίμονες ἐξεγερθῶσιν ἔκθαμβοι, of the arousing of the spirits of the dead by means of the divine name.
