Thayer's Expanded Definition

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. Winer's Grammar, 35 (34))): Romans 14:19; Romans 15:2; (1 Corinthians 14:26); 2 Corinthians 10:8 (see below); ; Ephesians 4:29; with a genitive of the person whose growth is furthered, ὑμῶν, 2 Corinthians 12:19 (cf. 10:8); ἑαυτοῦ (Tdf. αὐτοῦ), Ephesians 4:16; τοῦ σώματος τοῦ Χριστοῦ, Ephesians 4:12; τῆς ἐκκλησίας, 1 Corinthians 14:12; equivalent to τό ὀικοδομουν, what contributes to edification, or augments wisdom, etc. λαλεῖν, λαβεῖν, οἰκοδομήν, 1 Corinthians 14:3, 5.

2. equivalent to οἰκοδόμημα, a building (i. e. thing built, edifice): Mark 13:1f; τοῦ ἱεροῦ, Matthew 24:1; used of the heavenly body, the abode of the soul after death, 2 Corinthians 5:1; tropically, of a body of Christians, a Christian church (see οἰκοδομέω, b. β'.), Ephesians 2:21 (cf. πᾶς, I. 1 c.); with a genitive of the owner or occupant, Θεοῦ, 1 Corinthians 3:9.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";rise early,"; takes the place of the classical ὀρθρεύω in Biblical Greek (except in Tobit 9:6 B) : see Luke 21:38 and the LXX saepe. According to Thumb (Hellen. p. 123) the dependence of the verb on the Heb. הִשְׁבִּים in the sense of ";rise early"; is very improbable, and reference is made to such analogous verbs in MGr as νυχτορεύω, ";work throughout the night,"; and μεσημεριάζω, ";do something at midday.";
