Did

DID, pret of do, contracted from doed. I did, thou didst, he did; we did, you or ye did, they did.

Have ye not read what David did when he was hungry? Mat 12.

The proper signification is, made, executed, performed; but it is used also to express the state of health.

And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the womens house, to know how Esther did. Est 2.

Did is used as the sign of the past tense of verbs, particularly in interrogative and negative sentences; as, did he command you to go? He did not command me. It is also used to express emphasis; as, I did love him beyond measure.
