Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 1828: ἐξέλκω

ἐξέλκω: (present passive participle ἐξελκόμενος); to draw out, (Homer, Pindar, Attic writings); metaphorically, equivalent to to lure forth (A. V. draw away): ὑπό τῆς ... ἐπιθυμίας ἐξελκόμενος, James 1:14, where the metaphor is taken from hunting and fishing: as game is lured from its covert, so man by lust is allured from the safety of self-restraint to sin. (The language of hunting seems to be transferred here (so elsewhere, cf. Wetstein (1752) at the passage) to the seductions of a harlot, personated by ἐπιθυμία; see τίκτω.)

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
draw away.

From ek and helkuo; to drag forth, i.e. (figuratively) to entice (to sin) -- draw away.
