HELPS word-Studies

4878 synantilambánomai – properly, to give assistance with full initiative because closely-identified – supplying help that exactly corresponds to the need.

[Note the prefixes: 4862 /sýn ("closely identified with") and 473 /antí ("corresponding") which each nuance the root (2983 /lambánō, "aggressively lay hold of"). 4878 (synantilambánomai) is always in the Greek middle voice in the NT to further underline the high personal (self) interest motivating giving the help (which is personally shared).]
