Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀνανεόω, ἀνανέω: to renew (often in Greek writings); passive (Winer's Grammar, § 39, 3 N. 3; for the middle has an active or reciprocal force, cf. 1 Macc. 12:1 and Grimm at the passage) ἀνανεοῦσθαι τῷ πνεύματι to be renewed in mind, i. e. to be spiritually transformed, to take on a new mind (see νοῦς, 1{b}. at the end; πνεῦμα, at the end), Ephesians 4:23. Cf. Tittmann i., p. 60; (Trench, sections xl. xviii.), and ἀνακαινόω above.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀνανεόω occurs very frequently in Syll and OGIS : its record as an Attic word is noted by Schlageter, p. 25. Nearest to Ephesians 4:23 is Syll 722.13 (later than B.C. 167—from Cnosus, in dialect) ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ τὰν εὔνοιαν ἃν ἔχει πορτὶ (i.e. πρὸς) τὰν πόλιν ἀνανεώμενος αὐτὼς (l. αὐτός Ed.) τὰν προγονικὰν ἀρετὰν δι᾽ ἐγγράφω ἐπ [έδειξ ]ε. So ib. 481.10 (iii/ii B.C.) τά τε ἐξ ἀρχῆ [ς ] οἰκεῖα ὑπάρ [χοντα Σελευκεῦσι ]ν ἐκ προγόνων ἀνε [νε ]ώσατο, ib. 654.6 f. (? ii/B.C.) διότι ἁ πόλις τῶν Ἑρμιονέων ἀνανεοῦταί τε τὰν συγγένειαν καὶ φιλίαν κτλ., OGIS 90.35 (Rosetta stone, B.C. 196) προσπυνθανόμενός τε τὰ τῶν ἱ [ε ]ρῶν τιμιώτατα ἀνανεοῦτο ἐπὶ τῆς ἑαυτοῦ βασιλείας ὡς καθήκει. The substantive may be quoted from papyri. Thus P Oxy II. 274.20 (A.D. 89–97) Σαραπίων τέτακται τ ̣ε ̣[λος ] ἀνανεώ [σ ]εως ̣ τῆς προκειμένης ὑποθήκης, the charge for a renewal of a mortgage, P Strass I. 52.7 (A.D. 151) μ ̣ῂ προσδεομένοις ἀν ̣ανε [ ]σ ̣εως, and similarly P Flor I. 1.6 (A.D. 153), and ib. 81.11 (A.D. 103) : cf. also P Magd 31.7, .12 (B.C. 217). The word seems to be confined to legal phraseology.

[Supplemental from 1930 edition]

For ἀνανέωσις of the ";renewal"; of a boat, see P Oxy XIV. 1752.2 (A.D. 378).
