Raised up (1825) (exegeiro from ek = out + egeíro = to raise) carries the idea of bringing forward or lifting up and was used of the rise of historical figures to positions of prominence. To awaken someone from sleep (Lxx of Ps 3:6, Ge 28:16). "To bring to a sitting position...someone by the hand Hv 3, 1, 7" (BDAG). Cause to appear (Lxx of Zech 11:16-see below, Ro 9:17) Friberg - (1) To cause to appear in history, call into being, raise up. (2) of the dead - to cause to live again, raise up (1Co 6:14). (Ed: Also used with meaning #2 in one version of the Lxx of Daniel 12:2-note, Theodoret's version has anistemi). The only other NT use is also by Paul in the context of the resurrection... 1 Corinthians 6:14 Now God has not only raised (egeiro) the Lord, but will also raise (exegeiro) us up through His power. Exegeiro - 61 times in the Septuagint (LXX). - Ge 28:16; 41:21; 5" class="scriptRef">Num 10:35 ("Rise up, O LORD!"); 9" class="scriptRef">Nu 24:19; 12" class="scriptRef">Jdg 5:12 ("Awake, awake."); 1Sam 26:12; 11" class="scriptRef">2Sam 12:11; 19:18; 23:18; 1Kgs 16:3; 2Chr 36:22; Ezra 1:1, 5; Esther 8:4; Job 5:11; Ps 3:5; 7:6; 35:23; 44:23; 57:8; 59:4; 73:20; 78:65; 80:2; 108:2; 119:62; 139.18" class="scriptRef">139:18; Pr 25:23; Song 2:7; 3:5; 4:16; 8:4f; 38.16" class="scriptRef">Isa 38:16; 41:2; 51:9, 17; 52:1; Jer 6:22; 31:26; 50:41; 51:1, 38; Ezek 21:16; 23:22; Dan 11:25; 12:2; Joel 3:7, 9, 12; Jonah 1:4, 11, 13; Hab 1:6; 2:19; 3:13; Hag 1:14; Zech 2:13; 4:1; 11:16; 13:7. Here are some representative uses in the Septuagint... Speaking through the prophet Nathan, the Lord told David that, because of his murder of Uriah and taking his wife, Bathsheba, for himself, “I will raise up evil against you from your own household” (2Sa 12:11). One of Job’s “comforters” rightly said of God that “He sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety” (Job 5:11) In much the same way that He raised up Pharaoh, the Lord also raised up “the Chaldeans” to do His will, Habakkuk recording God's declaration... "behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, that fierce and impetuous people who march throughout the earth To seize dwelling places which are not theirs." (Hab. 1:6-note) Zechariah records that one day will raise up a shepherd [most interpret this as the Antichrist, cf. 2Th 2:3; Da 9:27-note] in the land who will not care for the perishing, seek the scattered, heal the broken, or sustain the one standing, but will devour the flesh of the fat sheep and tear off their hoofs (Zech 11:16). All of these events (and others too numerous to mention) underline the truth that God is sovereign over history.
