4932 syntémnō (from 4862 /sýn, "identity with" and temnō, "cut, divide") – properly, cut together with, which "limits or restricts the scope of" (Souter), i.e. to make "the shortest way possible" (J. Thayer).

4932 /syntémnō ("to cut short, limit") is only used in Ro 9:28 (which is a quote from Is 10:23). This refers to God accomplishing His plan for the nation (land) of Israel and its people – cutting short the time for Antichrist has to ravage the Jews. See also the HELPS prophecy-guide in The Discovery Bible.

Ro 9:28: "for the lord will execute his word on the earth, thoroughly and quickly (4932 /syntémnō)" (NASU).
