Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐξολοθρεύω and (according to the reading best attested by the oldest manuscripts of the Sept. and received by L T Tr WH (see ὀλοθρεύω)) ἐξολεθρεύω: future passive ἐξολοθρευθήσομαι; to destroy out of its place, destroy utterly, to extirpate: ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ, Acts 3:23. (Often in the Sept., and in the O. T. Apocrypha, and in Test xii. Patr.; Josephus, Antiquities 8, 11, 1; 11, 6, 6; hardly in native Greek writings.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In Acts 3:23, from LXX Deuteronomy 18:19, WH read ἐξολεθρευθήσεται in accordance with the preponderant evidence of the LXX uncials. The other spelling has survived in MGr ξολοθρεύω : see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 87 f. As showing the strength of the verb we may cite Pelagia-Legenden, pp. 23.15 εἰσαγαγεῖν σε ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ μου οὐ τολμῶ, μή πως ἀκούσῃ ὁ ὁρμαστός σου καὶ παγγενῆ με ἐξολοθρεύσῃ, 24.18 ἄγγελον ἐξαποστελεῖ καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσει πᾶσαν τὴν στρατιάν.
