KATA- generally has an intensifying effect. May be something like 'hold on
to' as in 1 Thes 5.21, 1 Cor 11.2, 15.2 (of gospel, traditions, etc.), or
used negatively of physical possessions in 1 Cor 7.30.
Choice of words EXW/KATEXW probably due to rhetoric as much as to specific
sense of word. Especially since KATAEXW is so polysemous--it must pick up
much of its sense from context: here it is contrast between physical lack
and spiritual riches/blessings.
