4846 sympnígō (from 4862 /sýn, "identified with" and 4155 /pnígō, "choke") – properly, choke (cut off) – literally, "choked because joined with."

4846 /sympnígō ("press in on, choke") operates in people having "wrong identifications" (aligning with sin). Doing this cuts a person off from Christ's provisions (His life-supply, note the prefix, syn) and leaves them inoperative (stalled, spiritually suffocated).

[4846 (sympnígō) is figuratively used of the deadly connections of sin, cutting off the life-support needed to live.]
