Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g2111 Greek: euthetos

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

"ready for use, fit, well adapted," lit., "well placed" (eu, "well," tithemi, "to place"), is used

(a) of persons, Luk 9:62, negatively, of one who is not fit for the kingdom of God;

(b) of things, Luk 14:35, of salt that has lost its savor; rendered "meet" in Hbr 6:7, of herbs.

A-2 Adjective Strong's Number: g701 Greek: arestos

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

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

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g433 Greek: aneko

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

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

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g2520 Greek: katheko

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

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

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g2675 Greek: kataritzo

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

"to make fit, to equip, prepare" (kata, "down," artos, "a joint"), is rendered "fitted" in Rom 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 Exodus narrative, which records Pharaoh's doings; only after repeated and persistent obstinacy on his part is it recorded that God hardened his heart.)

B-4 Verb Strong's Number: g4883 Greek: sunarmologeo

Fit (Adjective and Verb), Fitly, Fitting:

"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, Eph 2:21, "fitly framed together;" also of the members of the church as the body of Christ, 4:16, RV, "fitly framed... together."


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
