The New Testament word edify and its various forms is based on the Greek words oiko and domay or domeo, depending on the form used. Together they mean "to build the house" or "house builder." Remember that the OT house of God was the tabernacle and later the temple, but the NT house of God is His people (you are the temple of the Holy Spirit.) We’ll take a brief look at the OT picture and then develop an in-depth view of the NT perspective.
