Thayer's Expanded Definition

θριαμβεύω; 1 aorist participle θριαμβεύσας; (θρίαμβος, a hymn sung in festal processions in honor of Bacchus; among the Romans, a triumphal procession (Latintriumphus, with which word it is thought to be allied; cf. Vanicek, p. 317));

1. to triumph, to celebrate a triumph (Dionysius Halicarnassus, Appendix, Plutarch, Hdian, others); τινα, over one (as Plutarch, Thes. and Rom. comp. 4): Colossians 2:15 (where it signifies the victory won by God over the demoniacal powers through Christ's death).

2. by a usage unknown to secular authors, with a Hiphil or cuasative force (cf. Winers Grammar, p. 23 and § 38,1 (cf. Buttmann, 147 (129))), with the accusative of a person, to cause one to triumph, i. e. metaphorically, to grant one complete success, 2 Corinthians 2:14 (but others reject the causative sense; see Meyer at the passage; Lightfoot on Colossians, the passage cited).

*† θριαμβεύω

(< θρίαμβος , 1. a festal hymn to Bacchus. 2. The Roman triumphus),

1. to triumph (and rarely, c. acc, to triumph over; so perh. Colossians 2:15, but v. infr.).

2. to lead in triumph: c. acc pers., 2 Corinthians 2:14; hence, generally, to make a spectacle or show of: Colossians 2:15 (but v. supr.; cf. MM, Exp., xv; and esp. Field, Notes, 181).†

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A cognate verb appears in BGU IV. 1061.19 (B.C. 14) περὶ ὧν καὶ ἐν αὐτῆι τῆι Σιναρὺ παρεδόθησαν καὶ πρὸς τὸ μὴ ἐκθριαμβισθῆναι τὸ πρᾶγμα ἀπε [λύθησαν, ";for which crimes they were delivered up in Sinary itself, and were released in order that the affair should not be noised abroad."; (So Dr. A. S. Hunt, who kindly notes for us Basil De Spir. Sanct, xxvii. ἐκθριαμβεύειν, and Photius, who glosses θριαμβεύσας with δημοσιεύσας). This meaning is obviously allied to 2 Corinthians 2:14 ";make a show of,"; and contributes additional evidence against the impossible rendering of the AV (cf. Field Notes , p. 181). Lietzmann (HZNT ad l.) prefers to take the verb in the further weakened sense of περιάγειν, ";herümfuhren";; Ramsay (Luke, p. 297 f.), on the other hand, keeps to the military metaphor and translates : ";Thanks be to God, who always leads us (His soldiers) in the train of His triumph"; : cf. also Pope in Exp T xxi. p. 19 ff., Menzies Comm. ad l., and Robertson Gr. p. 148.
