(a) "to have a share in," Rom 15:27; 1Ti 5:22; Hbr 2:14; 1Pe 4:13; 2Jo 1:11;

(b) "to give a share to, go shares with," Rom 12:13, RV, "communicating," for AV, "distributing;" Gal 6:6, "communicate;" Phl 4:15, AV, "did communicate," RV, "had fellowship with."

"to share together with" (sun "and" No. 1), is translated "communicated with" in Phl 4:14; "have fellowship with," Eph 5:11; "be... partakers of," Rev 18:4 (RV, "have fellowship"). The thought is that of sharing with others what one has, in order to meet their needs.
See FELLOWSHIP, B, No. 2, PARTAKE, B, No. 2.

Note: Anatithemi, "to set forth," is rendered "laid before" in Gal 2:2, RV, for AV, "communicated unto;" in Act 25:14, RV, "laid before," for AV, "declared."

Note: In Col 3:8, where the AV translates aischrologia by "filthy communication," the RV renders it "shameful speaking" (aischros, "base," lego, "to speak").
