3: προσέχω
(Strong's #4337 — Verb — prosecho — pros-ekh'-o )

lit., "to hold to," signifies "to turn to, turn one's attention to;" hence, "to give heed;" it is rendered "take heed" in Matthew 6:1 ; Luke 17:3 ; 21:34 ; Acts 5:35 20:28 ; 2 Peter 1:19 ; to give heed to, in Acts 8:6,10 ; in ver.

See ATTEND , BEWARE , GIVE , REGARD.

4: ἐπέχω
(Strong's #1907 — Verb — epecho — ep-ekh'-o )

"to hole upon," then, "to direct towards, to give attention to," is rendered "gave heed," in Acts 3:5 ; "take heed," in 1 Timothy 4:16 . See HOLD (forth), MARK , STAY.

Notes: (1) In Luke 11:35 , AV, skopeo, "to look," is translated "take heed (that)," RV, "look (whether)." (2) Nos. 2 and 3 are used together in Matthew 16:6 ; Nos. 2 and 1, in that order, in Mark 8:15 ; but in Luke 12:15 the RV rightly follows No. 2 by "keep yourselves from" (phulasso, "to guard"). (3) For the RV of Mark 5:36 , "not heeding," see under HEAR , No. 7. (4) In Romans 11:21 the AV adds "take heed," because of a variant reading which introduces the clause by a conjunctive phrase signifying "lest."
