[Meaning] to honour, to esteem.[1]

And [there is] a proverb: "revere yourself", meaning delight yourself with vainglories.[3]
Greek Original:
Γεραίρειν: τιμᾶν, δοξάζειν. καὶ Γέραιρε, δόξαζε, τίμα. καὶ παροιμία: Γέραιρε σαυτόν, ἀντὶ τοῦ εὔφραινε σαυτὸν μεγαλορρημονῶν.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 7.321, where a form of the headword appears (web address 1 below).
cf. generally gamma 176, gamma 185, gamma 186, gamma 192.
[2] Perhaps, Adler suggests, from the scholia to Aristophanes, Thesmophoriazusae 961, where this imperative γέραιρε occurs (web address 2).
[3] cf. Appendix Proverbiorum 1.69 and other collections.
