STRONGS NT 1223: δι?

δι? ("written δ? before a vowel, except in proper names and 2 Corinthians 5:7; Romans 8:10" Tdf. Proleg., p. 94), akin to δ?? and Latindis in composition, properly, denoting a division into two or more parts; a preposition taking the genitive and the accusative. In its use the biblical writers differ in no respect from the Greek; cf. Winer's Grammar, 377ff (353ff); 398 (372)f

A. with the genitive: through;

I. of place;

1. properly, after verbs denoting an extension, or a motion, or an act, that occurs through any place: δ? ?λλη? ?δο? ?ναχωρε?ν, Matthew 2:12; δ? ?ν?δρων τ?πων, Matthew 12:43; δι? τ??

Nicod. c. 9, p. 568f, Thilo edition (p. 228, Tdf. edition) δι? θαλ?σση? ?? δι? ξηρ??); βλ?λπειν δ? ?σ?πτρου, 1 Corinthians 13:12 (cf. Winer's Grammar, 380 (356)). Add the adverbial phrase δ? ?λου from top to bottom, throughout, John 19:23 (metaphorically, in every way, 1 Macc. 6:18). From this use of the preposition has come

2. of time elapsed, and which has, so to say, been passed through: Galatians 2:1 (cf.

Where it is evident from the religious conceptions of the Bible that God is the author or first cause: John 11:4; Acts 5:12; Ephesians 3:10; Ephesians 4:16; Colossians 2:19; 2 Timothy 1:6; Hebrews 10:10; 2 Peter 3:6; σ?ζεσθαι δι? π?στεω?, Ephesians 2:8; συνεγε?ρεσθαι δι? τ?? π?στεω?, Colossians 2:12; δικαιο?σθαι δι? τ?? π?στεω?, Galatians 2:16, cf.

Μω?σ?ω? ?δ?θη, John 1:17; in passages in which something is said to have been spoken through the O. T. prophets, or some one of them (cf. Lightfoot Fresh Revision etc., p. 121f): Matthew 2:5, 17 L T Tr WH, Matthew 2:23; (Matthew 3:3 L T Tr WH); Matthew 4:14; Matthew 8:17; Matthew 12:17; Matthew 21:4; Matthew 24:15; Matthew 27:9; Acts 2:16; or to have been so written: Luke 18:31; with the added mention of the first cause: ?π? το? κυρ?ου δι? το? προφ?του, Matthew 1:22; Matthew 2:15, cf. Luke 1:70; Acts 1:16; Acts 28:25; Romans 1:2; in passages relating to the Logos: π?ντα δ? α?το? (i. e., through the Divine Logos (cf. Winer's Grammar, 379 (355))) ?γ?νετο or ?κτ?σθη: John 1:3; 1 Corinthians 8:6 (where he is expressly distinguished from the first cause: α?το? (Winer's Grammar, 419 (391))); Colossians 1:16 (Winer's Grammar, the passage cited), cf. Hebrews 1:2 (Philo de cherub. § 35). The instrumental cause and the principal are distinguished in 1 Corinthians 11:12 (δι? τ?? γυναικ?? ... το? Θεο?); Galatians 1:1 (?π' ?νθρ?πων ... δ? ?νθρ?που (cf. Winer's Grammar, 418 (390))).

3. with the genitive of a thing δι? is used to denote the manner in which a thing is done, or the formal cause: ε?πε δι? παραβολ??, Luke 8:4; ε?πε δ? ?ρματο?, Acts 18:9; ?παγγ?λλειν δι? λ?γου, by word of mouth, Acts 15:27; τ? λ?γ? δ? ?πιστολ?ν, 2 Corinthians 10:11, cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:15; π?στι? ?νεργουμ?νη δ? ?γ?πη?, Galatians 5:6; κεχ?ρισται δ? ?παγγελ?α?, Galatians 3:18; δουλε?ειν δι? τ?? ?γ?πη?, Galatians 5:13; ?πιστ?λλειν δι? βραχ?ων, Hebrews 13:22; γρ?φειν δ? ?λ?γων, 1 Peter 5:12 (Plato, Gorgias, p. 449 b. δι? μακρ?ν λ?γου? ποιε?σθαι (see ?λ?γο?, at the end; cf. Winer's Grammar, § 51, 1 b.)); δι? χ?ρτου κα? μ?λανο?, 2 John 1:12; δι? μ?λανο? κα? καλ?μου, 3 John 1:13 (Plutarch, Sol. 17, 3). To this head I should refer also the use of δι? τ?νο? in exhortations etc. where one seeks to strengthen his exhortation by the mention of a thing or a person held sacred by those whom he is admonishing (δι? equivalent to by an allusion to, by reminding you of (cf. Winer's Grammar, 381 (357))): Romans 12:1 15:30; 1 Corinthians 1:10; 2 Corinthians 10:1; 1 Thessalonians 4:2 (yet cf. Winer's Grammar, 379 (355) note); 2 Thessalonians 3:12 R G.

II. of the Ground or Reason on account of which anything is or is not done; by reason of because of (German aus Grund).

1. of the reason for which a thing is done, or of the efficient reason, when for greater perspicuity it may be rendered by (cf. Kühner, § 434 Anm.);

a. with the accusative of the thing: δ? , viz. τ?ν το? Θεο? ?μ?ραν (properly, by reason of which day, i. e. because it will come (cf. Winer's Grammar, 400 (373))), 2 Peter 3:12; δι? τ?ν λ?γον (properly, by reason of the word, i. e. because the word has cleansing power), John 15:3; δι? τ? θ?λημα σου (Vulg.proptar voluntatem tuam, i. e. because thou didst will it), Revelation 4:11; add, Revelation 12:11; Revelation 13:14 (?ναβι?σκεται δι? τ?ν το? πατρ?? φ?σιν, Plato, symp., p. 203 e.); cf. Grimm on 2 Macc. 3:1.

b. with the accusative of the person, by whose will, agency, favor, fault, anything is or is done: δι? τ?ν πατ?ρα ... δ? ?μ? (properly, because the father lives ... because I live (cf. Winer's Grammar, 399 (373))), John 6:57; δι? τ?ν ?πταξαντα, by the will of him who subjected it, opposed to ο?χ ?κο?σα, Romans 8:20 (cf.

2. of the reason or cause on account of which anything is or is done, or ought to be done; on account of, because of;

a. in the phrases δι? το?το, for this cause; for this reason; therefore; on this account; since this is so: Matthew 6:25; Matthew 12:27, 31; Matthew 13:13, etc.; Mark 6:14; Mark 11:24; Luke 11:49; Luke 14:20; John 6:65; John 9:23; Acts 2:26; Romans 1:26; Romans 4:16; Romans 5:12; Romans 13:6; Romans 15:9; 1 Corinthians 4:17; 1 Corinthians 11:10, 30; 2 Corinthians 4:1; Ephesians 1:15; Ephesians 5:17; Ephesians 6:13; Colossians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 3:5, 7; 2 Thessalonians 2:11; 2 Timothy 2:10; Hebrews 1:9; Hebrews 2:1; 1 John 4:5; 3 John 1:10; Revelation 7:15; Revelation 12:12; Revelation 18:8. followed by ?τι, for this cause ... because, therefore ... because: John 5:16, 18; John 8:47; John 10:17; John 12:18, 39; 1 John 3:1; cf. Tholuck edition 7 on John 10:17 (he questions, at least for John 10:17 and John 12:39, the canon of Meyer (on 12:39), Luthardt (on John 10:17), others, that in this phrase in John the το?το always looks backward) in the opposite order (when the words that precede with ?τι are to be emphasized): John 15:19. It indicates the end and purpose, being followed either by ?να, 2 Corinthians 13:10; 1 Timothy 1:16; Philemon 1:15, (in the opposite order, John 1:31); or by ?πω?, Hebrews 9:15. δι? τ? (so L Tr WH) and written together διατ? (so G T; cf. Winers Grammar, 45; (Lipsius, Gram. Unters., p. 126), why? wherefore? Matthew 9:11, 14; Matthew 13:10; Matthew 17:19; Mark 2:18; Luke 5:30; John 7:45; Acts 5:3; Romans 9:32; 1 Corinthians 6:7; Revelation 17:7. δ? α?τ?αν, see α?τ?α, 1. τ?? ? α?τ?α, δ? , Acts 10:21; Acts 23:28; δι? τα?την τ?ν α?τ?αν, Acts 28:20; δι? τα?τα, Ephesians 5:6, etc.

b. used, with the accusative of any noun, of the mental affection by which one is impelled to some act (English for; cf. Winer's Grammar, 399 (372) δι? φθ?νον, because prompted by envy, for envy, Matthew 27:18; Mark 15:10; δι? τ?ν φ?βον τ?νο?, John 7:13; John 19:38; John 20:19; Revelation 18:10, 15; δι? τ?ν πολλ?ν ?γ?πην, Ephesians 2:4. of any other cause on account of which one is said to do or to have done something — as in Matthew 14:3, 9; Matthew 15:3, 6; John 4:39, 41; John 12:11; John 14:11; Acts 28:2; Romans 3:25 (δι? τ?ν π?ρεσιν τ?ν προγεγον?των ?μαρτημ?των because of the pretermission etc., i. e. because he had left the sins unpunished); Romans 6:19; Romans 15:15; 2 Corinthians 9:14; Galatians 4:13 (δ? ?σθ?νειαν τ?? σαρκ??, on account of an infirmity of the flesh, i. e. detained among you by sickness; cf. Wieseler (or Lightfoot) at the passage); — or to suffer or have suffered something, Matthew 24:9; Matthew 27:19; Luke 23:19, 25; Acts 21:35; 2 Corinthians 4:11; Colossians 3:6; 1 Peter 3:14; Revelation 1:9; Revelation 6:9; — or to have obtained something, Hebrews 2:9; Hebrews 5:14; 1 John 2:12; — or to be or to become something, Romans 8:10 11:28; Ephesians 4:18; Hebrews 5:12 (Winer's Grammar, 399 (373)); Hebrews 7:18. of the impeding cause, where by reason of some person or thing something is said to have been impossible: Matthew 13:58; Matthew 17:20; Mark 2:4; Luke 5:19; Luke 8:19; Acts 21:34; Hebrews 3:19; Hebrews 4:6. δι? with the accusative of a person is often equivalent to for the benefit of (English for the sake of): Mark 2:27; John 11:42; John 12:30; 1 Corinthians 11:9; Hebrews 1:14; Hebrews 6:7 δι? το?? ?κλεκτο??, Matthew 24:22; Mark 13:20; 2 Timothy 2:10; δι? Χριστ?ν for Christ's sake, to promote his cause, 1 Corinthians 4:10; δ? ?μ??, John 12:30; 2 Corinthians 4:15; 2 Corinthians 8:9; Philippians 1:24; 1 Thessalonians 1:5. δι? τινα, because of the example set by one: 2 Corinthians 2:10; Romans 2:24; 2 Peter 2:2; δι? τ?ν Χριστ?ν, for Christ, to become a partner of Christ, Philippians 3:7 (equivalent to ?να Χριστ?ν κερδ?σω, Philippians 3:8).

c. δι? τ?, because that, for that, is placed before the infinitive — either standing alone, as Luke 9:7; Hebrews 7:23; — or having a subject accusative expressed, as Matthew 24:12; Mark 5:4; Luke 2:4; Luke 19:11; Acts 4:2; Acts 12:20; Acts 18:2; Acts 27:4, 9; Acts 28:18; Philippians 1:7; Hebrews 7:24; Hebrews 10:2; James 4:2; — or with its subject accusative evident from the context, as Matthew 13:6; Mark 4:6; Luke 11:8; Luke 18:5; Luke 23:8; Acts 8:11; Acts 18:3.

C. In Composition δι? indicates:

1. a passing through space or time, through, (διαβα?νω, δι?ρχομαι, δι?λ?ζω, etc.); hence,

2. continuity of time (διαμ?νω, διατελ?ω, διατηρ?ω), and completeness of action (διακαθαρ?ζω, διαζ?ννυμι).

3. distribution (διαδ?δωμι, διαγγ?λλω, διαφημ?ζω).

4. separation (διαλ?ω, διαιρ?ω).

5. rivalry and endeavor (διαπ?νω, διακατελ?γχομαι; cf. Herm. ad Vig., p. 854; (Winer. as below, p. 6)).

6. transition from one state to another (διαλλ?σσω, διορθ?ω). (Cf. Winer, De verb. comp. etc. Part v.; Valckenaer on Herodotus 5, 18; Cattier. Gazophyl. edition Abresch, Cant. 1810, p. 39; A. Rieder, Ueb. d. mit mehr als ein. prap. zusammeng. verba im N. T., p. 17f) No one of the N. T. writers makes more frequent use of verbs compounded with δι? than Luke, (see the list in Winer, as above, p. 3 note; on their construction Winers Grammar, § 52, 4, 8).

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
through, on account of

A primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal, or occasional) -- after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause)...
