STRONGS NT 5111: τολμάω

τολμάω, τολμῶ; imperfect 3 person singular ἐτόλμα, plural ἐτόλμων; future τολμήσω; 1 aorist ἐτόλησα; (τολμᾷ or τόλμῃ (`daring'; Curtius, § 236)); from Homer down; to dare;

a. not to dread or shun through fear: followed by an infinitive, Matthew 22:46; Mark 12:34; Luke 20:40; John 21:12 (Winer's Grammar, § 65, 7b.); Acts 5:13; Acts 7:32; Romans 15:18; 2 Corinthians 10:12; Philippians 1:14; Jude 1:9; τολμήσας εἰσῆλθεν, took courage and went in, Mark 15:43 (Herodian, 8, 5, 22; Plutarch, vit. Cam. 22, 6).

b. to bear, endure; to bring oneself to; (cf. Winer's Grammar, as above): followed by an infinitive, Romans 5:7; 1 Corinthians 6:1.

c. absolutely, to be bold; bear oneself boldly, deal boldly: 2 Corinthians 11:21; ἐπί τινα, against one, 2 Corinthians 10:2. (Compare: ἀποτολμάω.) [SYNONYMS: τολμάω, θαρρέω: θαρρέω denotes confidence in one's own strength or capacity, θαρρέω boldness or daring in undertaking; θαρρέω has reference more to the character, τολμάω to its manifestation. Cf. Schmidt, chapter 24, 4; chapter 141. The words are found together in 2 Corinthians 10:2.]

be bold, dare

From tolma (boldness; probably itself from the base of telos through the idea of extreme conduct); to venture (objectively or in act; while tharrheo is rather subjective or in feeling); by implication, to be courageous -- be bold, boldly, dare, durst.
