su-pli': Phil 4:19 for pleroo; 1 Cor 16:17; Phil 2:30 for anapleroo; 2 Cor 9:12 (the King James Version); 2 Cor 11:9 for prosanapleroo. All three verbs mean "to fill," the 3rd containing the additional connotation "fill up to a certain point." Eph 4:16; Phil 1:19 for the noun epichoregia, literally, "an additional supply." But no special force of "additional" seems to be contained in the passages. In 2 Cor 9:10a; Gal 3:5; Col 2:9; 2 Pet 1:5,11, we have epichoregeo, "to furnish besides," i.e. fully supply; in 2 Cor 9:10b; 1 Pet 4:11 the simple choregeo, "to furnish,"
