Thayer's Expanded Definition

τήκω: from Homer down; to make liquid; passive, to become liquid, to melt; to perish or be destroyed by melting: 2 Peter 3:12, where for the present 3 person singular τήκεται Lachmann gives the future τακήσεται (see WH on the passage and in their Appendix, p. 171), cf. Isaiah 34:4 τακήσονται πᾶσαι αἱ δυνάμεις τῶν οὐρανῶν. (Cf. Veitch, under the word.)
