οἰκοδομή, οἰκοδομῆς, (οἶκος, and δέμω to build), a later Greek word, condemned by Phryn., yet used by Aristotle, Theophrastus, ((but both these thought to be doubtful)), Diodorus (1, 46), Philo (vit. Moys. i. § 40; de monarch. ii. § 2), Josephus, Plutarch, the Sept., and many others, for οἰκοδόμημα and οἰκοδόμησις; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 481ff, cf. p. 421; (Winer's Grammar, 24);

1. (the act of) building, building up, equivalent to τό οἰκοδομεῖν; as, τῶν τειχέων, 1 Macc. 16:23; τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ, 1 Chronicles 26:27; in the N. T. metaphorically, "edifying, edification, i. e. the act of one who promotes another's growth in Christian wisdom, piety, holiness, happiness" (see οἰκοδομέω, b. β'. (cf.
