5524 xorēgéō (from xorēgos, "a person who both funds and directs an epic, ancient chorus," and 2233 /hēgéomai, "lead") – properly, to fund and lead a grand event, bearing all the expenses necessary to stage the grand event.

5524 /xorēgéō ("richly supply") in both NT occasions refers to God lavishly supplying all believers need, in every scene of life – so each becomes a grand (eternal) event! See 2 Cor 9:10; 1 Pet 4:11.

[5524 (xorēgéō) is used in classical Greek for funding a chorus, supplying everything needed to make it an event! "The provision of a chorus at public festivals was a costly business for the Athenian public offices, who supplied in abundance" (P. Hughs).]
