4917 synthláō (from 4862 /sýn, "together with" and thlaō, "crush") – properly, pulverize, crushing parts together into dust (note the syn).

4917 /synthláō ("to break in pieces") implies to completely shatter, i.e. break-up into dust (Souter); (figuratively) to be crushed (devastated) by resisting (colliding with) Christ.

(Mt 21:44) This verse "graphically pictures the fate of the man who rejects Christ. The verb means to shatter. We are familiar with an automobile that dashes against a stone wall, a tree, or a train and the ruin that follows. Will scatter him as dust (3039 /likmáō). The verb was used of winnowing out the chaff and then of grinding to powder. This is the fate of him on whom this Rejected Stone falls" (WP, 1, 172).
