FULFIL - fool-fil' (male; pleroo, teleo, with other words): "Fulfill" is used (1) in a sense more or less obsolete, "to fill up," complete (Gen 29:21,28; Ex 23:26; Job 36:17, the Revised Version (British and American) "full," margin "filled up"; Mt 3:15, "to fulfill all righteousness"; Phil 2:2, "Fulfil ye my joy," the American Standard Revised Version "make full"; compare 2 Cor 10:6); (2) in the sense of "to accomplish," "to carry into effect," as to fulfill the word of Yahweh (1 Ki 2:27; 8:15,24; 2 Ch 36:21, etc.); in the New Testament very frequently used of the fulfillment of prophetic Scripture (Mt 1:22; 2:15, etc.). Love is declared to be "the fulfillment (pleroma, "fullness") of the law" (Rom 13:10). For "fulfill" the Revised Version (British and American) has "do" (Rev 17:17); for "fulfilled" has "performed" (2 Sam 14:22), "accomplished" (Ezr 1:1; Mt 5:18; 24:34; Lk 21:32; Jn 19:28), with numerous other changes.
