HELPS word-Studies

498 antitássomai (from 473 /antí, "opposite to, against" and 5021 /tássō, "arrange, order") – properly, "squared off" (opposite to); opposed to in principle and in practice.

498 /antitássomai ("to resist") means to "reject the entire make-up of something," i.e. its whole arrangement – from its very "set up" (organization) to the final way it is "ordered."

[498 (antitássomai), a very old military term, was used for placing a soldier in a specific platoon (with a specific function) – i.e. in a definite order to attack or resist.

Accordingly, 498 (antitássomai) is used in antiquity of organized resistance, like an army assuming a specific battle-array position to resist in "full alignment"; to disagree (oppose) intensely.]
