Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2507: καθαιρέω

καθαιρέω, καθαίρω; future καθελῶ (Luke 12:18 (see ἀφαιρέω, at the beginning)); 2 aorist καθεῖλον (from the obsolete έ῾λω); present passive καθαιροῦμαι; from Homer down; the Sept. for הורִיד, to cause to go down; הָרַס, נָתַץ, פָּרַץ;

1. to take down: without the notion of violence, τινα, to detach from the cross one crucified, Mark 15:36, 46; Luke 23:53 (Polybius 1, 86, 6; Philo in Flacc. § 10); τινα ἀπό τοῦ ξύλου, Acts 13:23 (the Sept. Joshua 8:29; Joshua 10:27); with the use of force, to throw down, cast down: τινα ἀπό θρόνου, Luke 1:52.

2. to pull down, demolish: τάς ἀποθήκας, opposed to οἰκοδομεῖν, Luke 12:18; λογισμούς, the (subtle) reasonings (of opponents) likened to fortresses, equivalent to to refute, 2 Corinthians 10:4 (5); to destroy, ἔθνη, Acts 13:19 (Jeremiah 24:6; Thucydides 1, 4; Aelian v. h. 2, 25); τήν μεγαλειότητα τίνος, Acts 19:27, where if preference is given (with L T Tr WH) to the reading τῆς μεγαλειότητος αὐτῆς, it must be taken as a partitive genitive somewhat of her magnificence; cf. Buttmann, 158 (138) note (so Meyer; cf. Xenophon, Hell. 4, 4, 13. Al. translate that she should even be deposed from her magnificence; cf. Winers Grammar, § 30, 6; Buttmann, § 132, 5).

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
