The Greek word anoikodomeo

Found only in Acts 15:16, the Greek verb “anoikodomeo” meant “build up again.”  Luke used this word to refer back to the prophecy in Amos 9:11.

Amos looked forward to the time when David’s house would be rebuilt and one of David’s descendants would again reign as king (compare Rev. 19:13 + Rev. 19:16).
