fur'-nish (male; plethomai):

To "furnish" is to supply with what is useful or necessary, to fit out, provide, equip. It is the translation of several Hebrew or Greek words: of male', "to fill in or up," "to complete" (Isaiah 65:11 the King James Version); nasa, "to lift up," "to aid" (1 Kings 9:11); `anaq, Hiphil, probably "to lay on the neck," "to encircle" (with a bracelet) (Deuteronomy 15:14), of a slave set at liberty; `arakh, "to arrange in order," "to lay out a table" (Psalm 78:19 the King James Version; Proverbs 9:2); `asah keli, "to make a vessel for containing things" (Jeremiah 46:19, "Furnish thyself to go into captivity," the Revised Version, margin "Hebrew, make thee vessels of captivity"); plethomai, "to be filled" (Matthew 22:10 the King James Version); stronnumi, "to strew," "to spread" (Mark 14:15 Luke 22:12); exartizo, "to complete fully," to equip" (2 Timothy 3:17).

In Ecclesiasticus 29:26 we have "furnish a table" (kosmeo); 44:6, "furnished with ability" (choregeo); APC 1Macc 14:34 the King James Version, "He furnished them with all things" (tithemi).
