STRONGS NT 3354: μετρέω

μετρέω, μέτρῳ; 1 aorist ἐμέτρησα; 1 future passive μετρηθήσομαι; (μέτρον); from Homer, Odyssey 3, 179 down; the Sept. several times for מָדַד; to measure; i. e.:

1. to measure out or off, a. properly, any space or distance with a measurer's reed or rule: τόν ναόν, τήν αὐλήν, etc., Revelation 11:2; Revelation 21:15, 17; with τῷ καλάμῳ added, Revelation 21:16; ἐν αὐτῷ, i. e. τῷ καλάμῳ, Revelation 11:1.

b. metaphorically, to judge accoding to any rule or standard, to estimate: ἐν μέτρῳ μετρεῖτε, by what standard ye measure (others) (but the instrumental ἐν seems to point to a measure of capacity; cf. Winers Grammar, 388 (363); Buttmann, § 133, 19. On the proverb see further below), Matthew 7:2; Mark 4:24; passive to be judged, estimated, ibid.; μέτρειν ἑαυτόν ἐν ἑαυτῷ, to measure oneself by oneself, to derive from oneself the standard by which one estimates oneself, 2 Corinthians 10:12 (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 31, 8 at the end).

2. to measure to, mete out to, i. e. to give by measure: in the proverb τῷ αὐτῷ μέτρῳ μετρεῖτε (or (so L T Tr WH) μέτρῳ μετρεῖτε), i. e., dropping the figure, 'in proportion to your own beneficence,' Luke 6:38. (Compare: ἀντιμετρέω.)

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
estimate, measure, mete.

From metron; to measure (i.e. Ascertain in size by a fixed standard); by implication, to admeasure (i.e. Allot by rule) -- figuratively, to estimate -- measure, mete.
