  • Vine:
    1. "Believe". PEItho-, to persuade , in the middle (PEIthomai) and passive voices signifies to suffer oneself to be persuaded, e.g., Lk. 16:31; Heb 13:18; Acts 17:4; 27:11; 28:24.
    2. "Agree". PEItho-, to persuade, is rendered "agreed" in Acts 5:40, where the meaning is "they yielded to him."
    3. "Assure". PEItho-, to persuade, is rendered "assure" in 1 John 3:19, where the meaning is that of confidence toward God consequent upon loving in deed and in truth.
    4. "Obey". PEItho-, to persuade, to win over, in the passive and middle voices, to be persuaded, to listen to, to obey, is so used with this meaning, in the middle voice, e.g., in Acts 5:36,7; Rom. 2:8; Gal. 5:7; Heb. 13:17; Jas. 3:3. The obedience suggested is not by submission ot authority, but resulting from persuasion.
      PEItho- and pisTEUo-, to trust, are closely related etymologically; the difference in meaning is that the former implies the obedience that is produced by the latter, cp. Heb. 3:18,19, where the disobedience of the Israelites is said to be the evidence of their unbelief. Faith is of the heart, invisible to men; obedience is of the conduct and may be observed. When a man obeys God he gives the only possible evidence that in his heart he believes God. Of course it is persuasion of the truth that results in faith (we believe because we are persuaded that the thing is true, a thing does not become true because it is believed), but PEItho-, in NT suggests an actual and outward result of the inward persuasion and consequent faith.
    5. "Persuade": PEItho- in the active voice, signifies to apply persuasion, to prevail upon or win over, to persuade, bringing about a change of mind by the influence of reason or moral considerations.
    6. "Trust": PEItho-, intransitively, in the perfect and pluperfect active, to have confidence, trust.
    7. "Yield": PEItho-, to persuade, in the passive voice, to be persuaded, is translated "do (not) thou yield", Acts 23:21.
