Thayer's Greek LexiconSTRONGS NT 326: ἀναζάω
ἀναζάω, (ῶ: 1 aorist ἀνέζησα; a word found only in the N. T. and ecclesiastical writings; to live again, recover life;
b. tropically, one is said ἀναζῆν who has been νεκρός in a tropical sense; α. to be restored to a correct life: of one who returns to a better moral state, Luke 15:24 (WH marginal reading ἔζησεν) ((A. V. is alive again), cf. Meyer at the passage), 32 (T Tr WH ἔζησε). (beta) to revive, regain strength and vigor: Romans 7:9; sin is alive, indeed, and vigorous among men ever since the fall of Adam; yet it is destitute of power (νεκρά ἐστι) in innocent children ignorant of the law; but when they come to a knowledge of the law, sin recovers its power in them also. Others less aptly explain ἀνέζησε here began to live, sprang into life (German lebteauf). To recover life (literally or figuratively) -- (be a-)live again, revive.
