2720 kateuthýnō (from 2596 /katá, "down, exactly according to," intensifying 2116 /euthýnō, "make straight") – properly, go straight down by the most direct, efficient route; to go in a direct (straight) course – avoiding all unnecessary delays, without any undue loss of time or achievement.

[The prefix (kata) lends the idea "exactly direct or guide" – literally "down to without unnecessary deviation."]
