HELPS word-Studies

488 antimetréō (from 473 /antí, "corresponding to" and 3354 /metréō, "to measure") – properly, measure out proportionally which provides an exchange, i.e. based on a true equivalence (literally, "measured back again"). 488 (antimetréō) is only used twice in the NT (Textus Receptus), each time in relation to God's "law of reciprocity" (Mt 7:2; Lk 6:38).

[The Critical Text is confined to Lk 6:38.]

488 /antimetréō ("measured back proportionally") is reciprocity ("returning back accordingly").
