HELPS Word-studies

553 apekdéxomai (from 575 /apó, "away from," 1209 /déxomai, "welcome" and 1557 /ekdíkēsis, "out of") – a triple compound (properly) meaning "welcome from and out of"; waiting that decisively "puts away" all that should remain behind.

The prefix (apo) intensifies the root (dexomai) to emphasize the idea of separation. 553 (apekdéxomai) therefore is used of looking completely away from this world – and to the upcoming redemption of our body.
