Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

παρα-βουλεύομαι, v. παραβολ-.

From G3844 and the middle of G1011

Thayer's Expanded Definition

παραβολεύομαι: 1 aorist middle participle παραβολευσάμενος; to be παράβολος i. e. one who rashly exposes himself to dangers, to be venturesome, reckless (cf. Winers Grammar, 93 (88); Lob. ad Phryn., p. 67); recklessly to expose oneself to danger: with a dative of respect, τῇ ψυχή, as respects life; hence, to expose one's life boldly, jeopard life, hazard life, Philippians 2:30, G L T Tr WH for the παραβουλευσάμενος of Rec.; on the difference between these readings cf. Gabler, Kleinere theol. Schriften, i., p. 176ff. This verb is not found in the Greek writers, who say παραβάλλεσθαι, now absolutely, to expose oneself to danger (see Passow, under the word παραβάλλω, 2; Liddell and Scott, ibid. II.), now with an accusative of the thing (to risk, stake), as ψυχήν, Homer, Iliad 9, 322; σῶμα καί ψυχήν, 2 Macc. 14:38 (see other examples in Passow (and Liddell and Scott), the passage cited); now with a dative of reference, ταῖς ψυχαῖς, Diodorus 3, 35; τῇ ἐμαυτοῦ κεφαλή, ἀργυρίῳ, Phryn. ed. Lob., p. 238; (cf. Lightfoot on Philippians, the passage cited).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";urge on,"; which is confined to Acts 13:50 in Biblical Greek, is cited by Hobart p. 225 for its medical associations, but it is by no means uncommon in a more general sense in late Greek, e.g. Jos. Antt. VII. 118 (vi. 1) παρώτρυναν τὸν βασιλέα λέγοντες κατασκόπους πεπομφέναι. . . .
