eulogeo

Εὐλογημένος [4 verses](part sg perf pass nom) "Blessed" is from eulogeo, which means "speak well of," "praise." "honor," "bless," "praise" a god, by a Hebr. euphemism, "curse," and, as an adjective, "charmed," "lucky," and "blessed." -- "Blessed" is from a verb that means to "speak well of," "praise." and "honor." Amusingly, this is a Hebrew euphemism for "cursed," reversing its normal meaning. This is not the word used in the Beatitudes ("Blessed are the poor..."). It is in a past passive form of an adjective, "having been honored."
