Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g2658 Greek: katantao


"to come to, arrive at," is used

(a) literally, of locality, Act 16:1, "came to;" so Act 18:19, 24; 20:15 ("came"); Act 21:7; 25:13; 27:12 (AV, "attain to," RV, "reach"); Act 28:13;

(b) metaphorically, of attainment, Act 26:7, "attain;" so Eph 4:13; Phl 3:11. In 1Cr 10:11 ("upon whom the ends of the ages are come," RV), the metaphor is apparently that of an inheritance as coming down or descending to an heir, the "ends" (tele) being the spiritual revenues (cp. Mat 17:25, revenues derived from taxes, and Rom 13:7, where the singular, telos, "custom," is used); the inheritance metaphor is again seen in 1Cr 14:36, of the coming (or descending) of the Word of God to the Corinthians.

2 Strong's Number: g2668 Greek: katapleo


denotes "to sail down" (kata, "down," pleo, "to sail"), i.e., from the high sea to the shore, Luk 8:26.

3 Strong's Number: g3854 Greek: paraginomai


lit., "to become near," hence, "to come on the scene," Mat 3:1, of John the Baptist, is translated, "arrive" in the RV of 1Cr 16:3, for AV, "come."

4 Strong's Number: g3846 Greek: paraballo


para, "alongside," ballo, "to throw," signifies, nautically, "touched at;" so the RV of Act 20:15 (AV, "arrived"); or, perhaps, to strike across, from one place to another. In Mar 4:30, some mss. have this verb (AV, "compare"); the most authentic have tithemi, to set forth (with the word "parable").

5 Strong's Number: g5348 Greek: phthano


"to anticipate, reach to," is translated "did arrive at," Rom 9:31, RV, of Israel's failure to attain to the Law (AV, "hath attained to").
