The fundamental sense of CARIZOMAI is "grant/bestow (acc.
something/someone) as a favor to (dat. someone)" -- and this falls within
that basic sense.


37.30 CARIZOMAI d: to hand someone over into the control of another person,
without some reasonable cause - 'to hand over to, to put into the control
of someone.' 'it is not the custom of Romans to hand someone over without a
cause' Ac 25:16.
