Confer, Conference

[ 1,,G4323, prosanatithemi ]
lit., to put before" (pros, "towards," ana, "up," and tithemi, "to put"), i.e., "to lay a matter before others so as to obtain counsel or instruction," is used of Paul's refraining from consulting human beings, Galatians 1:16 (translated "imparted" in Galatians 2:6; AV, "added ... in conference").

See ADD, IMPART.

[ 3,,G4820, sumballo ]
lit., "to throw together" (sun, "with," ballo, "to throw"), is used of "conversation, to discourse or consult together, confer," Acts 4:15. See ENCOUNTER, HELP, MEET WITH, PONDER.
