Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 4059: περιτέμνω

περιτέμνω (Ionic περιτάμνω); 2 aorist περιέτεμον; passive, present περιτέμνομαι; perfect participle περιτετμημένος; 1 aorist περιετμήθην; (from Hesiod down); the Sept. chiefly for מוּל; to cut around (cf. περί, III. 1): τινα, to circumcise, cut off one's prepuce (used of that well-known rite by which not only the male children of the Israelites, on the eighth day after birth, but subsequently also 'proselytes of righteousness' were consecrated to Jehovah and introduced into the number of his people; (cf. BB. DD. under the word ; Oehler's O. T. Theol. (edited by Day) §§ 87, 88; Müller, Barnabasbrief, p. 227f)), Luke 1:59; Luke 2:21; John 7:22; Acts 7:8; Acts 15:5; Acts 16:3; Acts 21:21; of the same rite, Diodorus 1, 28; passive and middle to get oneself circumcised, present oneself to be circumcised, receive circumcision (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 38, 3): Acts 15:1, 24 Rec.; 1 Corinthians 7:18; Galatians 2:3; Galatians 5:2; Galatians 6:12f; with τά αἰδοῖα added, Herodotus 2, 36 and 104; Josephus, Antiquities 1, 10, 5; contra Apion 1, 22. Since by the rite of circumcision a man was separated from the unclean world and dedicated to God, the verb is transferred to denote the extinguishing of lusts and the removal of sins, Colossians 2:11, cf. Jeremiah 4:4; Deuteronomy 10:16, and ecclesiastical writings (see Lightfoot on Philippians 3:3).
