(Strong's #346 — Verb — anakephalaioo — an-ak-ef-al-ah'ee-om-ahee )

"to sum up, gather up" (ana, "up," kephale, "a head"), "to present as a whole," is used in the Passive Voice in Romans 13:9 , RV, "summed up" (AV, "briefly comprehended"), i.e., the one commandment expresses all that the Law enjoins, and to obey this one is to fulfil the Law (cp. Galatians 5:14 ); Middle Voice in Ephesians 1:10 , RV, "sum up" (AV, "gather together"), of God's purpose to "sum up" all things in the heavens and on the earth in Christ, a consummation extending beyond the limits of the church, though the latter is to be a factor in its realization.
