Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

ἄξιος, ία, ιον

(ος, ον Nonn. D. 8.314), for Αγ-τιος,

counterbalancing, cf. ἄγω v1:

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἄξιος, ἄξια, ἄξιον (from ἄγω, ἄξω; therefore properly, drawing down the scale; hence)

a. weighing, having weight; with a genitive having the weight of (weighing as much as) another thing, of like value, worth as much: βῶς ἄξιος, Homer, Iliad 23, 885; with the genitive of price (Winer's Grammar, 206 (194)), as ἄξιος δέκα μνῶν, common in Attic writings; πᾶν τίμιον οὐκ ἄξιον αὐτῆς (σοφίας) ἐστι, Proverbs 3:15; Proverbs 8:11; οὐκ ἐστι σταθμός πᾶς ἄξιος ψυχῆς, Sir. 26:15; οὐκ ἄξια πρός τήν ... δόξαν are of no weight in comparison with the glory, i. e. are not to be put on an equality with the glory, Romans 8:18; cf. Fritzsche at the passage and Winers Grammar, 405 (378); (Buttmann, 340 (292)).

b. befitting, congruous, corresponding, τίνος, to a thing: τῆς μετανοίας, Matthew 3:8; Luke 3:8; Acts 26:20; ἄξια ὧν ἐπράξαμεν, Luke 23:41. ἄξιον ἐστι it is befitting: α. it is meet, 2 Thessalonians 1:3 (4 Macc. 17:8); β. it is worth the while, followed by τοῦ with an accusative and an infinitive, 1 Corinthians 16:4; — (in both senses very common in Greek writings from Homer and Herodotus down, and often with ἐστι omitted).

c. of one who has merited anything, worthy — both in a good reference and a bad; α. in a good sense; with a genitive of the thing: Matthew 10:10; Luke 7:4; (Luke 10:7); Acts 13:46; 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 Timothy 4:9; 1 Timothy 5:18; 1 Timothy 6:1. followed by the aorist infinitive: Luke 15:19, 21; Acts 13:25; Revelation 4:11; Revelation 5:2, 4, 9, 12; followed by ἵνα: John 1:27 (ἵνα λύσω, a construction somewhat rare; cf. Dem. pro cor., p. 279, 9 ἀξιουν, ἵνα βοηθήσῃ ((dubious); see under the word ἵνα, II. 2 at the beginning and c.)); followed by ὅς with a finite verb (like Latindignus,qui): Luke 7:4 (Buttmann, 229 (198)). It stands alone, but so that the context makes it plain of what one is said to be worthy: Matthew 10:11 (to lodge with); Matthew 10:13 (namely, τῆς εἰρήνης); Matthew 22:8 (namely, of the favor of an invitation); Revelation 3:4 (namely, to walk with me, clothed in white), with a genitive of the person — worthy of one's fellowship, and of the blessings connected with it: Matthew 10:37; Hebrews 11:38 (τοῦ θεοῦ, Sap. iii. 5; Ignatius ad Eph. 2 [ET]). β. in a bad sense; with a genitive of the thing: πληγῶν, Luke 12:48; θανάτου, Luke 23:15; Acts (Acts 23:29); (); ; Romans 1:32; absolutely: Revelation 16:6 (namely, to drink blood).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἄξιος appears with infin. in BGU IV. 1141.15 (B.C. 14) ἐγὼ μἐν οὺ δοκῶι ἄξιος εἶναι ὑβρίζεσθαι. For the absolute use (as Matthew 10:11; Matthew 10:13) see P Petr II. 15 (3).8 (B.C. 241–39) τοῦτο δὲ ποιήσας εὐχαριστήσεις ἡμῖν κ [αὶ ?] ἄξιος γάρ ἐστιν ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἐν χρείαι [ . . . where the editor translates, ";By doing this you will oblige us, [. .] for the man is worthy of it, [but] in need—."; The sense of ";worth,"; ";value,"; is illustrated by P Lille I. 6.9 (iii/B.C.), where a certain Petesuchos complains that robbers ἐξέδυσαν χιτῶνα ἄχιον (δραχμὰς) ς ̄ ";a tunic worth six drachmas."; So the fem. became a noun = ";value"; : BGU IV. 1118.40 (B.C. 22) πείθεσθαι περὶ τῆς τούτω ̣ν ̣ ἀξίας, ib. 1126.14 (B.C. 8) ἐκτίνιν τὴν ἑκάστου ἀξίαν πλὴν συμφανοῦς ἀπ [ωλείας ]. For ἀξίως τοῦ θεοῦ (as in 1 Thessalonians 2:12, 3 John 1:6 etc.) see Deissmann BS p. 248 f., who shows that ";the formula was a very popular one in Pergamus (and doubtless also in other localities)."; He cites five inscrr., as Perg I. 248.7 ff. (ii/B.C.), where Athenaios, a priest of Dionysios and Sabazius, is extolled as συ [ν ]τετελεκότος τὰ ἱερὰ. . . εὐσεβῶς [μ ]ὲγ καὶ ἀξίως τοῦ θεοῦ. We may add Magn 33.30 (Gounos in Thessaly, iii/B.C.) ἀξίως [τ ] [ς ] θ [ε ]ᾶς, ib. 85.10 f. (Tralles) ἀξίως τῆς τε Ἀρτέμιδος. . . καὶ [τοῦ ] . . δήμου, and Priene 119.15 (end of i/B.C.) πομπεύσας τῇ προστάτιδι τῆς ] πόλεως Ἀθηνᾶι τῆς θεᾶς ἀξί [ως ]. So P Petr II. 13 (19).4 (c. B.C. 252) (= Witkowski,.2 p. 18) οὐ ] μὴν οὐδὲν ἐμοὶ [ἔσται με ]ῖζον ἢ σοῦ προστατῆσα [ι τὸν ] [π ]ίλοιπον βίον, ἀξίως [μὲ ]ν σοῦ, ἀξίως δ᾽ ἐμοῦ, where the dependent gen. is neither divine nor a community, but has the dignity characteristic of the pietas of this charming letter. A combination may be seen in the letter of Aline to her husband, P Giss I. 20.24 (ii/A.D.), following the citation under ἀξιόω below, ι ̣̓́να ἀξίως σοῦ καὶ τῶν θεῶν ἀόκνως προσέλθῃ. The word survives in MGr.
