Magnify

MAGNIFY

mag'-ni-fi (Hiphil of gadhal; megaluno, "to make great," "extol," "celebrate in praise"):

Used especially of exaltation of the name, mercy, and other attributes of God (Genesis 19:19; 2 Samuel 7:26; Psalms 35:27; 40:16; 70:4; Luke 1:46; Acts 10:46); of God's "word" (Psalms 138:2); or of Christ (Acts 19:17; Philippians 1:20). Men also can be "magnified" (Joshua 4:14; 1 Chronicles 29:25, etc.). In Romans 11:13, "magnify mine office," the word (Greek, doxazo) is changed in the Revised Version (British and American) to "glorify."
