Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words
(Strong's # )
Acts 23:12 , of the Jews who "banded together" with the intention of killing Paul, consists of the verb poieo, "to make," and the noun sustrophe, primarily "a twisting up together, a binding together;" then, "a secret combination, a conspiracy." Accordingly it might be translated "made a conspiracy." The noun is used elsewhere in 19:40. See CONCOURSE.
