Romans 7:23 Bringing me into captivity [αιχμαλωτιζοντα]
See note on this late and vivid verb for capture and slavery Luke 21:24; note on 2 Corinthians 10:5. Surely it is a tragic picture drawn by Paul with this outcome, “sold under sin” (Romans 7:14), “captivity to the law of sin” (Romans 7:23). The ancient writers (Plato, Ovid, Seneca, Epictetus) describe the same dual struggle in man between his conscience and his deeds. [source]
2 Timothy 3:6 Take captive [αιχμαλωτιζοντες]
“Taking captive.” Present active participle of αιχμαλωτιζω — aichmalōtizō for which see note on 2 Corinthians 10:5; Romans 7:23. Silly women (γυναικαρια — gunaikaria). Literally, “little women” (diminutive of γυνη — gunē), found in Diocles (comedian of 5 century b.c.) and in Epictetus. The word here is neuter (grammatical gender) plural. Used contemptuously here (only N.T. example). Ramsay suggests “society ladies.” It is amazing how gullible some women are with religious charlatans who pose as exponents of “new thought.” Laden with sins Perfect passive participle of σωρευω — sōreuō old word from Aristotle down (from σωρος — sōros a heap) to heap up. In N.T. only here and Romans 12:20. Associative instrumental case αμαρτιαις — hamartiais Divers (ποικιλαις — poikilais). Many coloured. See note on Titus 3:3. One has only to recall Schweinfurth, the false Messiah of forty odd years ago with his “heavenly harem” in Illinois and the recent infamous “House of David” in Michigan to understand how these Gnostic cults led women into licentiousness under the guise of religion or of liberty. The priestesses of Aphrodite and of Isis were illustrations ready to hand. Αγομενα — Agomena (present passive participle) means “continually led astray or from time to time.” [source]

Luke 21:24 Shall be led captive [αιχμαλωτιστησονται]
Future passive of αιχμαλωτιζω — aichmalōtizō from αιχμη — aichmē spear and αλωτος — halōtos Here alone in the literal sense in the N.T.Shall be trodden under foot (εσται πατουμενη — estai patoumenē). Future passive periphrastic of πατεω — pateō to tread, old verb.Until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled First aorist passive subjunctive with αχρι ου — achri hou like εως ου — heōs hou What this means is not clear except that Paul in Romans 11:25 shows that the punishment of the Jews has a limit. The same idiom appears there also with αχρι ου — achri hou and the aorist subjunctive. [source]
2 Corinthians 10:5 Every high thing that is exalted [παν υπσωμα επαιρομενον]
Same metaphor. υπσωμα — Hupsōma from υπσοω — hupsoō is late Koiné{[28928]}š word (in lxx, Plutarch, Philo, papyri) for height and that figure carried on by επαιρομενον — epairomenon Paul aims to pull down the top-most perch of audacity in their reasonings against the knowledge of God. We need Paul‘s skill and courage today. Bringing every thought into captivity (αιχμαλωτιζοντες παν νοημα — aichmalōtizontes pān noēma). Present active participle of αιχμαλωτιζω — aichmalōtizō common Koiné{[28928]}š verb from αιχμαλωτος — aichmalōtos captive in war (αιχμη — aichmē spear, αλωτος — halōtos verbal of αλισκομαι — haliskomai to be taken). See note on Luke 21:24. Paul is the most daring of thinkers, but he lays all his thoughts at the feet of Jesus. For noēma (device) see note on 2 Corinthians 2:11. To the obedience of Christ Objective genitive, “to the obedience unto Christ.” That is Paul‘s conception of intellectual liberty, freedom in Christ. Deissmann (St. Paul, p. 141) calls this “the mystic genitive.” [source]
