Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1096 Greek: ginomai


"to become," is rendered "befell" in Mar 5:16; "hath befallen" in Rom 11:25, RV, for AV, "is happened to;" so the RV in 2Cr 1:8; 2Ti 3:11.

2 Strong's Number: g4819 Greek: sumbaino


lit., "to walk, or go together" (sun, "with," baino, "to go"), is used of things which happen at the same time; hence, "to come to pass, befall," Act 20:19. In Act 21:35, it is translated "so it was."

3 Strong's Number: g4876 Greek: sunantao


"to meet with" (sun, "with," antao, "to meet"), is used much in the same way as sumbaino, of events which come to pass; "befall," Act 20:22.

Note: The phrase in Mat 8:33, "what was befallen to them that were possessed with demons," is lit., "the things of the demonized."


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.
