HELPS word-Studies

1299 diatássō (from 1223 /diá, "through, thoroughly," intensifying 5021 /tássō, "to order, appoint") – properly, systematically order – literally, "all the way through (thoroughly) arrange."

1299 /diatássō ("to command with detailed instructions") means to issue a command with full authority because it takes into account all that is necessary to lay down a proper order.

[Such an order also goes through all the necessary proper "chain-of-command," which further underlines its binding (authoritative) nature.

This root (diata-) implies detailed orders which typically relate to chain-of-command situations (see WP at Mt 11:1).]
