4819 symbaínō (from 4862 /sýn, "together with" and bainō, "walk") – properly, two things moving side-by-side; (figuratively) what happens together, i.e. as one closely-integrated unit.

In the NT, 4819 /symbaínō ("happen") chiefly refers to God's providence, i.e. that the Lord arranges all the physical scenes of life to work in conjunction with His eternal purpose. Indeed, the two always go together – which means "everything is happening (4819 /symbaínō) as it should" (G. Archer).

[That is, on the "boulē-level of the will of God. See 1012 /boulē ("the Lord's immutable plan for physical circumstances").]

1. to walk with the feet near together.

2. to come together, meet with one; hence,

3. of things which fall out at the same time, to happen, turn out, come to pass (so occasionally in the Sept for קָרָה and קָרָא); as very often in Greek writings (the Sept. Genesis 42:4; Genesis 44:29), συμβαινει τί τίνι, something befalls, happens to, one: Mark 10:32; Acts 20:19; 1 Corinthians 10:11; (1 Peter 4:12); 2 Peter 2:22; τό συμβεβηκός τίνι, Acts 3:10 (Susanna 26); absolutely, τά συμβεβηκότα, the things that had happened, Luke 24:14 (1 Macc. 4:26; (Josephus, contra Apion 1, 22, 17)); συνέβη followed by an accusative with an infinitive it happened (A. V. so it was) that, etc.: Acts 21:35 (cf. Winer's Grammar, 323 (303)), examples from secular authors are given by Grimm on 2 Macc. 3:2.
