1340 diisxyrízomai (from isxyros, "combatively strong," which is intensified by the prefix, 1223 /diá, "thoroughly") – properly, thoroughly assert (intensely affirm), especially in the face of opposition; to "assert emphatically" (Souter).

[The high level of personal self-involvement (personal interest) of this action ("intense asserting") accounts for why it is always in the Gk middle voice.]
