STRONGS NT 4748: στοιχέω

στοιχέω, στοίχω; future στοιχήσω; (στοῖχος a row, series);

a. to proceed in a row, go in order: Xenophon, Cyril 6,3,34; metaphorically, to go on prosperously, to turn out well: of things, Ecclesiastes 11:6 for כָּשֵׁר.

b. to walk: with a locative dative (Winers Grammar, § 31, 1 a. cf. p. 219 (205); yet cf. Buttmann, § 133, 22 b.). τοῖς ἴχνεσι τίνος, in the steps of one, i. e. follow his example, Romans 4:12; to direct one's life, to live, with a dative of the rule (Buttmann, as above), εἰ πνεύματι ... στοιχῶμεν, if the Holy Spirit animates us (see ζάω, I. 3 under the end), let us exhibit that control of the Spirit in our life, Galatians 5:25; τῷ κανόνι, according to the rule, Galatians 6:16; τῷ αὐτῷ (where Rec. adds κανόνι, Philippians 3:16 (Winers Grammar, § 43, 5 d.; cf. Buttmann, § 140, 18 at the end), (τῷ παραδειγματι τίνος, Clement, hom. 10, 15); with a participle denoting the manner of acting, στοιχεῖς τόν νόμον φυλάσσων, so walkest as to keep the law (A. V. walkest orderly, keeping etc.), Acts 21:24. (On the word and its construction see Fritzsche on Romans, vol. iii., p. 142. Compare:

walk orderly.

From a derivative of steicho (to range in regular line); to march in (military) rank (keep step), i.e. (figuratively) to conform to virtue and piety -- walk (orderly).
