bē̇ -stō ´: 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 συνάγω , sunágō , "to stow away goods" (Luke 12:17 ); or ψωμίζω , psōmı́zō , "give away" (1 Corinthians 13:3 ). The term has richest significance in expressing God's abundant gift of grace and love, δίδωμι , dı́dōmi (2 Corinthians 8:1 the King James Version; 1 John 3:1 ).
