Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 1593: ἐκνεύω

ἐκνεύω: 1 aorist ἐξένευσα;

1. to bend to one side (τῇ κεφαλή, Xenophon, ven. 10, 12).

2. to take oneself away, withdraw: John 5:13, where Chrysostom says that ἐξενευσε is equivalent to ἐξεκλινε; but others derive the form from ἐκνέω, which see (the Sept. for סוּר, Judges 4:18 Alex.; פָּנָה, to turn oneself, Judges 18:26 Alex.; 2 Kings 2:24; 2 Kings 23:16; (add 3Macc. 3:22; Josephus, Antiquities 7, 4, 2). In secular authors also transitively, to avoid a thing; as τά βέλη, Diodorus 15, 87; πληγήν, ibid. 17, 100.)

STRONGS NT 1593: ἐκνέωἐκνέω

1. properly, to swim away, escape by swimming (Thucydides 2, 90).

2. to escape, slip away secretly ((Pindar Ol. 13, 163); Euripides, Hipp. 470, etc.); in this sense many interpretations take ἐξενευσε in John 5:13. But Jesus withdrew not to avoid danger but the admiration of the people; for the danger first arose after his withdrawal.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
to turn aside, withdraw

From ek and neuo; (by analogy) to slip off, i.e. Quietly withdraw -- convey self away.
