Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4863 Greek: sunago


"to assemble" (sun, "together," ago, "to bring"), is used of the "gathering together" of people or things; in Luk 12:17, 18, "bestow," with reference to the act of "gathering" one's goods; so in Luk 15:13, suggesting that the Prodigal, having "gathered" all his goods together, sold them off; in Jhn 6:12, of "gathering up" fragments; in Jhn 18:2, "resorted," with reference to the "assembling" of Christ with His disciples in the garden of Gethsemane, there in the Passive Voice (unsuitable, however, in an English translation). In Act 11:26, the RV has "were gathered together (with the church)," for AV, "assembled themselves" (possibly "they were hospitably entertained by"). The verb is not found in the most authentic mss. in Rev 13:10.

Note: Episunago, "to gather together," is found only in the Synoptic Gospels; twice of the "gathering" together of people, Mar 1:33; Luk 12:1; twice of the desire of the Lord to "gather" together the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Mat 23:37; Luk 13:34; twice of His future act in "gathering" together His elect through the instrumentality of the angels, Mat 24:31; Mar 13:27.

2 Strong's Number: g4871 Greek: sunalizo


"to gather together, to assemble," with the suggestion of a crowded meeting (sun, "with," halizo, "to crowd, or mass:" the corresponding adjective is hales, "thronged"), is used in Act 1:4. The meaning "to eat with," suggested by some, as if the word were derived from hals, "salt," is not to be accepted.

3 Strong's Number: g4905 Greek: sunerchomai


"to come together" (sun, "together," erchomai, "to come"), is once rendered "assemble," Mar 14:53, AV. It is frequently used of "coming together," especially of the "gathering" of a local church, 1Cr 11:17, 18, 20, 33, 34; 14:23, 26; it is rendered "resorted" in Act 16:13, AV, where the RV adheres to the lit. rendering, "came together."


(1) In Act 15:25, ginomai, "to become," is translated "having come to (one accord)," correcting the AV, "being assembled with (one accord)."

(2) Sunagoge, akin to A, No. 1, is lit., "a place where people assemble." In Act 13:43 the RV suitably has "synagogue," for the AV "congregation," the building standing by metonymy for the people therein (cp. Mat 10:17, etc.). In Jam 2:2 (AV, "assembly") the word is "synagogue" (RV).

(3) Episunagoge, akin to No. 1, Note, "an assembling together," is used in 2Th 2:1, of the rapture of the saints into the air to meet the Lord, "our gathering together;" in Hbr 10:25, of the "gatherings" of believers on earth during the present period.


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.
