Thayer's Expanded Definition

κομίζω: 1 aorist participle feminine κομίσασα; middle, present participle κομιζόμενος; 1 future κομίσομαι (Ephesians 6:8 L T Tr WH; Colossians 3:25 L text WH) and Attic κομιοῦμαι (Colossians 3:25 R G L marginal reading T Tr; (Ephesians 6:8 R G); 1 Peter 5:4; cf. (WHs Appendix, p. 163f); Buttmann, 37 (33); (Winers Grammar, § 13, 1 c.; Veitch, under the word)), participle κομιουμενος (2 Peter 2:13 (here WH Tr marginal reading ἀδικούμενοι; see ἀδικέω, 2 b.)); 1 aorist ἐκομισάμην,(lButtmann, § 135, 1); rare in the Sept., but in Greek writings from Homer down, frequent in various senses;

1. to care for, take care of, provide for.

2. to take up or carry away in order to care for and preserve.

3. universally, to carry away, bear off.

4. to carry, bear, bring to: once so in the N. T., viz. ἀλάβαστρον, Luke 7:37. Middle (as often in secular authors) to carry away for oneself; to carry off what is one's own, to bring back; i. e.

a. to receive, obtain: τήν ἐπαγγελίαν, the promised blessing, Hebrews 10:36; Hebrews 11:39 (τάς ἐπαγγελίας L; so T Tr WH in Hebrews 11:13); σωτηρίαν ψυχῶν, 1 Peter 1:9; τῆς δόξης στέφανον, 1 Peter 5:4; μισθόν ἀδικίας, 2 Peter 2:13 (see above) (τόν ἄξιον τῆς δυσσεβείας μισθόν, 2 Macc. 8:33; δόξαν ἐσθλην (others, καρπίζεται), Euripides, Hipp. 432; τήν ἀξίαν παρά θεῶν, Plato, legg. 4, p. 718 a., and other examples elsewhere).

b. to receive what was previously one's own, to get back, receive back, recover: τό ἐμόν σύν τόκῳ, Matthew 25:27; his son (of Abraham after he had consented to sacrifice Isaac), Hebrews 11:19 (2 Macc. 7:29; τόν ἀδελφόν ἀνυβριστον, Philo de Josepho § 35; οἱ δέ παῥ ἐλπίδας ἑαυτούς κεκομίσμενοιt, having received each other back, been restored to each other, contrary to their expectations, of Abraham and Isaac after the sacrifice of the latter had been prevented by God, Josephus, Antiquities 1, 13, 4; τήν ἀδελφήν, Euripides, Iph. T. 1362; used of the recovery of hostages, captives, etc., Thucydides 1, 113; Polybius 1, 83, 8; 3, 51, 12; 3,40, 10; the city and temple, 2 Macc. 10:1; a citadel, a city, often in Polybius; τήν βασιλείαν, Aristophanes an. 549; τήν πατρῴαν ἀρχήν, Josephus, Antiquities 13, 4, 1). Since in the rewards and punishments of deeds, the deeds themselves are as it were requited and so given back to their authors, the meaning is obvious when one is said κομίζεσθαι that which he has done, i. e. either the reward or the punishment of the deed (Winer's Grammar, 620f (576)): 2 Corinthians 5:10; Colossians 3:25; with παρά κυρίου added, Ephesians 6:8; ((ἁμαριταν, Leviticus 20:17); ἕκαστος, καθώς ἐποίησε, κομειται, the Epistle of Barnabas 4, 12 [ET]). (Compare: ἐκκομίζω, συγκομίζω.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κομίζω in the sense of ";bring,"; ";carry,"; as in Luke 7:37, may be illustrated from P Petr III. 53(k).5 (iii/B.C.) κομιοῦμεν γάρ σοι ταύτην τε καὶ τὴμ πρὸς Παγκράτην ἐπιστολήν, P Tebt 1. 55.4 (late ii/B.C.) κεκόμικε δέ μοι ὁ παρὰ σοῦ ἄμιος (ἀρτὰβην) α ̄, ";your agent has brought me one artaba of ami"; (Edd.), P Oxy II. 296.3 (i/A.D.) δὸς τῷ κομίζοντί σου τὴν ἐπιστολὴν τὴν λαογραφίαν Μνησιθέου, ";give the bearer of this letter the poll-tax of Mnesitheus,"; and BGU III. 417.32 (ii/iii A.D.) τὰ ὀξείδία μοι κόμισον. The middle is very common with the meaning ";receive,"; e.g. BGU IV. 1206.4 (B.C. 28) κεκόμισμαι ἃ ἐγεγράφις (on pluperf. see Proleg. p. 148), P Fay 114.3 (A.D. 100) κομισάμενός μου τὴν ἐπιστολήν, ";on receipt of my letter,"; P Oxy VIII. 1153.3 (i/A.D.) ]κομισάμην διὰ Ἡρακλᾶτος τὰς κίστας [σὺν ] τοῖς βιβλίοις, ";I have received through Heraclas the boxes with the books,"; ib. III. 530.10 (ii/A.D.) κόμισ [αι ] παρὰ Χ [αιρ ]ήμονος τ [ο ]ῦ κομίζοντός σο [ι ] τὸ [ἐπι ]στόλιον ἀργυρίου δραχμὰς ἑκατὸν δέκ [α ] δύο, ";receive from Chaeremon the bearer of this letter 112 drachmae of silver,"; ib. VI. 963 (ii/iii A.D.) χάριν δέ σοι οἶδα, μῆτερ, ἐπὶ τῇ σπουδῇ τοῦ καθεδραρίου (";stool";), ἐκομισάμην γὰρ αὀτό, and ib. XII. 1493.7 (Christian—iii/iv A.D.) ἐκομισάμην σου τὸν υἱὸν εὐρωστοῦντα καὶ ὁλοκληροῦντα διὰ παντός, ";I received your son safe and sound in every respect"; (Edd.). For the further meaning ";receive back,"; ";recover,"; which the middle apparently has in all its NT occurrences (cf. Hort on 1 Peter 1:9), we can cite such passages as P Hib I. 54.9 (c. B.C. 245) (= Chrest. I. p. 563) ἐάν τι δέηι ἀνηλῶσαι δός, παρὰ δὲ ἡμ [ ]ν κ ̣ομι ̣(ε ̣ι ̣ͅ), ";if any expense is necessary, pay it, and you shall recover it from us"; (Edd.), and P Tebt I. 45.33 (B.C. 113) διὸ ἐπιδίδωμί σοι. . ἵνα τῶν ἐγκαλουμένων κατασταθέντων ἐγὼ μὲν κομίσωμαι τὰ ἐμαυτοῦ, ";I therefore present this complaint to you in order that the accused having been produced I may recover my property"; (Edd.). Hence the use of the verb in connexion with recovering a debt, getting it paid—P Hamb I. 27.5 (B.C. 250) τὴν δὲ τιμὴν οὔπω ἐκεκόμιστο, P Eleph 13.5 (B.C. 223–2) περὶ δὲ τῶν εἴκοσι δραχμῶν οὔπω ἐκεκόμιστο Φίλων, Πιστοκλῆς (l. κλέα) [γ ]ὰρ οὐχ εὑρήκειμεν, P Oxy I. 101.23 (A.D. 142) ἕως τὰ κατ᾽ ἔτος ὀφειλόμενα κομίσηται, ";until the yearly rent is paid.";
