1. to exercise, practise, be busy with, carry on: τά περίεργα, Acts 19:19; τά ἰδίᾳ, to mind one's own affairs, 1 Thessalonians 4:11 (τά ἑαυτοῦ (Sophocles Electr. 678); Xenophon, mem. 2, 9, 1; Plato, Phaedr., p. 247a.; Demosthenes, p. 150, 21; others); used of performing the duties of an office, 1 Corinthians 9:17. to undertake to do, μηδέν προπετές, Acts 19:36.

V. extort); τό ἀργύριον, Luke 19:23 (soagere in Latin, cf. the commentators on Suetonius, Vesp. 1; (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 42, 1 a.)).

4. intransitive, to act (see εὖ, p. 256a): ἀπέναντι τίνος, contrary to a thing, Acts 17:7.
