384 anaskeuázō (from 303 /aná, "up," which intensifies 4632 /skeúos, "a vessel for carrying") – properly, "pack up, to carry away or remove" (J. Thayer), i.e. move something out of its place; re-arrange to confuse (unsettle); "mix up" to subvert (destroy by unsettling).

[In one papyrus, anaskeuazō means "go bankrupt " (P Oxy IV. 745.5, ad. 1): "and we go bankrupt again without any necessity" (MM, 37).]

384 /anaskeuázō ("subversively rearranging"), used only in Ac 15:24, refers to people with false (scrambled) theology trying to "re-arrange" the theology of others!
