STRONGS NT 4285: προηγέομαι

προηγέομαι, προηγοῦμαι; to go before and show the way, to go before and lead, to go before as leader (Herodotus 2, 48; often in Xenophon; besides in Aristophanes, Polybius, Plutarch, the Sept., others): τῇ τιμή ἀλλήλους προηγούμενοι, one going before another as an example of deference (A. V. in honor preferring one another (on the dative cf. Winer's Grammar, § 31, 6 a.)), Romans 12:10. The Greek writers connect this verb now with the dative (Aristophanes, Plutarch, 1195; Polybius 6, 53, 8; etc.), now with the genitive (Diodorus 1, 87); see προέρχομαι, 2 a.


From pro and hegeomai; to lead the way for others, i.e. Show deference -- prefer.
