Word Study – Poieo (Made)

A Study on poieo in relation to how
it is used in II Corinthians 5:21
Throughout the New Testament, the word poieo is used of God to describe that which is actually, literally, and truly done, made, wrought, brought forth, worked, and/or performed. This word, to the very best of my understanding, is never used in the Bible to denote something that is merely legal, supposed, artificially deemed, etc.

Made 4160 poieo poy-eh’-o – apparently a prolonged form of an obsolete primary; TDNT-6:458,895; v; AV-do 357, make 113, bring forth 14, commit 9, cause 9, work 8, show 5, bear 4, keep 4, fulfil 3, deal 2, perform 2, not tr 3, misc 43, vr do 3; 579; 1) to make; 1a) with the names of things made, to produce, construct, form, fashion, etc.; 1b) to be the authors of, the cause; 1c) to make ready, to prepare; 1d) to produce, bear, shoot forth; 1e) to acquire, to provide a thing for one’s self; 1f) to make a thing out of something; 1g) to (make i.e.) render one anything; 1g1) to (make i.e.) constitute or appoint one anything, to appoint or ordain one that; 1g2) to (make i.e.) declare one anything; 1h) to put one forth, to lead him out; 1i) to make one do something; 1i1) cause one to; 1j) to be the authors of a thing (to cause, bring about); 2) to do; 2a) to act rightly, do well; 2a1) to carry out, to execute; 2b) to do a thing unto one; 2b1) to do to one; 2c) with designation of time: to pass, spend; 2d) to celebrate, keep; 2d1) to make ready, and so at the same time to institute, the celebration of the Passover; 2e) to perform: to a promise

TVM: Aorist 5777, Active 5784, Indicative 5791, Count: 2319

5777 Tense-Aorist: The aorist tense is characterized by its emphasis on punctiliar action; that is, the concept of the verb is considered without regard for past, present, or future time.  There is no direct or clear English equivalent for this tense, though it is generally rendered as a simple past tense in most translations. The events described by the aorist tense are classified into a number of categories by grammarians.  The most common of these include a view of the action as having begun from a certain point (“inceptive aorist”), or having ended at a certain point (“cumulative aorist”), or merely existing at a certain point (“punctiliar aorist”).  The categorization of other cases can be found in Greek reference grammars. The English reader need not concern himself with most of these finer points concerning the aorist tense, since in most cases they cannot be rendered accurately in English translation, being fine points of Greek exegesis only.  The common practice of rendering an aorist by a simple English past tense should suffice in most cases.

 5784 Voice-Active: The active voice represents the subject as the doer or performer of the action.  e.g., in the sentence, “The boy hit the ball,” the boy performs the action.

5791 Mood-Indicative: The indicative mood is a simple statement of fact.  If an action really occurs or has occurred or will occur, it will be rendered in the indicative mood.
