(Strong's #643 — Verb — episkeuazo — ap-osk-yoo-ad'-zo )

"to furnish with things necessary;" in the Middle Voice, "to furnish for oneself;" it was used of equipping baggage animals for a journey; in Acts 21:15 , RV, it is translated "we took up our baggage" (AV, "we took up our carriages"). The form is the 1st aorist participle, and lit. means "having made ready (the things that were necessary for the journey)."

Note: Some mss. have the verb aposkeuazo, which has the same meaning.
