Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1325 Greek: didomi

Bestow:

"to give," is rendered "bestow" in 1Jo 3:1, the implied idea being that of giving freely. The AV has it in 2Cr 8:1; the RV adheres to the lit. rendering, "the grace of God which hath been given in the churches of Macedonia."
See ADVENTURE and especially GIVE.

2 Strong's Number: g4863 Greek: sunago

Bestow:

"to bring together" (sun, "together," ago, "to bring"), is used in the sense of "bestowing," or stowing, by the rich man who laid up his goods for himself, Luk 12:17, 18.
See ASSEMBLE, COME, GATHER, LEAD, RESORT, TAKE.

3 Strong's Number: g2872 Greek: kopiao

Bestow:

(a) "to grow tired with toil," Mat 11:28; Jhn 4:6; Rev 2:3, also means

(b) "to bestow labor, work with toil," Rom 16:6; Gal 4:11; in Jhn 4:38, AV, "bestowed (no) labor," RV, "have (not) labored," and, in the same verse, AV and RV, "labored."
See LABOR, TOIL, WEARY.

4 Strong's Number: g5595 Greek: psomizo

Bestow:

primarily "to feed by putting little bits into the mouths of infants or animals," came to denote simply "to give out food, to feed," and is rendered by the phrase "bestow... to feed" in 1Cr 13:3; "feed," Rom 12:20; there the person to be fed is mentioned; in 1Cr 13:3 the material to be given is specified, and the rendering "bestow... to feed" is necessary.
See FEED.

5 Strong's Number: g4060 Greek: peritithemi

Bestow:

"to put around or on" (peri, "around," tithemi, "to put"), is translated in 1Cr 12:23 (metaphorically) "bestow" (marg., "put on").
See PUT, SET, No. 5.

6 Strong's Number: g5483 Greek: charizomai

Bestow:

"to show favor, grant, bestow," is rendered "bestowed" in Luk 7:21, RV, for AV, "gave." Here and in Gal 3:18, the verb might be translated "graciously conferred."
See DELIVER, FORGIVE, GIVE, GRANT.

Note: For "freely bestowed" see ACCEPT, A, Note.
