4717
σταυρόω,       Verb
I fix to the cross, crucify; fig: I destroy, mortify.

From: Public Domain Greek-English lexicon by John Jeffrey Dodson (2010)

HELPS Lexicon excerpt

4717 stauróō – to crucify, literally used of the Romans crucifying Christ on a wooden cross.  "Crucify" (4717/stauróō) is also applied figuratively, of putting the old self to death by submitting all decisions (desires) to the Lord.  This utterly and decisively rejects living independently from Him.
