The seven Hebrew words rendered by this term variously mean "to put" or "place," "to give"; "do," "deposit," as e.g. to locate chariots and horsemen in cities (1 Kings 10:26); or give a blessing (Exodus 32:29). Four Greek words so translated signify "to give," "to labor," "to feed," "to place around"; as sunago, "to stow away goods" (Luke 12:17); or psomizo, "give away" (1 Corinthians 13:3). The term has richest significance in expressing God's abundant gift of grace and love, didomi (2 Corinthians 8:1 the King James Version; 1 John 3:1).
