Thayer'sSTRONGS NT 1828: ἐξέλκωἐξέλκω
: (present passive participle ἐξελκόμενος
); to draw out,
, Attic writings); metaphorically, equivalent to to lure forth
(A. V. draw away
): ὑπό τῆς
... ἐπιθυμίας ἐξελκόμενος
, James 1:14
, where the metaphor is taken from hunting and fishing: as game is lured from its covert, so man by lust is allured from the safety of self-restraint to sin. (The language of hunting seems to be transferred here (so elsewhere, cf. Wetstein
(1752) at the passage) to the seductions of a harlot, personated by ἐπιθυμία
; see τίκτω
From ek and helkuo; to drag forth, i.e. (figuratively) to entice (to sin) -- draw away.
