Additional Links
A — 1: εὔθετος

(Strong's #2111 — Adjective — euthetos — yoo'-thet-os )

"ready for use, fit, well adapted," lit., "well placed" (eu, "well," tithemi, "to place"), is used (a) of persons, Luke 9:62 , negatively, of one who is not fit for the kingdom of God; (b) of things, Luke 14:35 , of salt that has lost its savor; rendered "meet" in Hebrews 6:7 , of herbs. See MEET.

A — 2: ἀρεστός

(Strong's #701 — Adjective — arestos — ar-es-tos' )

"pleasing" (akin to aresko, "to please"), is translated "(it is not) fit," RV (AV, "reason"), in Acts 6:2 . See PLEASE , REASON.

B — 1: ἀνήκω

(Strong's #433 — Verb — aneko — an-ay'-ko )

properly, "to have come up to" (ana, "up," and heko, "to arrive"), is translated "is fitting," in Colossians 3:18 , RV. See BEFITTING.

B — 2: καθήκω

(Strong's #2520 — Verb — katheko — kath-ay'-ko )

"to come or reach down to" (kata, "down"), hence, "to befit, be proper," is translated "is (not fit)" in Acts 22:22; in Romans 1:28 , RV, "fitting" (AV, "convenient"). See CONVENIENT.

B — 3: καταρτίζω

"to make fit, to equip, prepare" (kata, "down," artos, "a joint"), is rendered "fitted" in Romans 9:22 , of vessels of wrath; here the Middle Voice signifies that those referred to "fitted" themselves for destruction (as illustrated in the case of Pharaoh, the self-hardening of whose heart is accurately presented in the RV in the first part of the series of incidents in the Exodous narrative, which records Pharaoh's doings; only after repeated and persistent obstinacy on his part is it recorded that God hardened his heart.) See FRAME , JOIN , PERFECT , PREPARE , RESTORE.

(Strong's #4883 — Verb — sunarmologeo — soon-ar-mol-og-eh'-o )

"to fit or frame together" (sun, "with," harmos, "a joint, in building," and lego, "to choose"), is used metaphorically of the various parts of the church as a building, Ephesians 2:21 , "fitly framed together;" also of the members of the church as the body of Christ, 4:16, RV, "fitly framed ... together."
