Commune

COMMUNE; COMMUNICATE; COMMUNICATION [ISBE]

COMMUNE; COMMUNICATE; COMMUNICATION - ko-mun', komun'-i-kat, ko-mu-ni-ka'-shun: To commune is to converse confidentially and sympathetically. It is represented in both Hebrew and Greek by several words literally signifying to speak (compare Lk 6:11, dialaleo; also Lk 22:4; Acts 24:26, homileo). To communicate is to impart something to another, so that it becomes common to giver and receiver. In 1 Tim 6:18, "willing to communicate" (the Revised Version, margin "sympathize"), represents a single word koinonikoi, and refers to the habit of sharing with others either sympathy or property. the Revised Version (British and American) gives "companionships" for homiliai in 1 Cor 15:33 (the King James Version "communications").
