The meaning of Come in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

kum: The translation of many Hebrew and Greek words. In the phrase "The Spirit of Yahweh came mightily upon him" (Judges 14:6, Judges 14:19; Judges 15:14; I Samuel 10:10; I Samuel 11:6; I Samuel 16:13), the word is tsaleah; Judges 14:6; Judges 15:14 "came mightily," which is the uniform translation of the Revised Version (British and American) (compare Judges 13:25 "to move," i.e. to disturb or stir up). In Judges 6:34; I Chronicles 12:18; II Chronicles 24:20, it is labhesh, "to clothe"; the Revised Version, margin "The Spirit .... clothed itself with Gideon" and .... "with Zechariah," "The Spirit clothed Amasai."

Among its many changes, the Revised Version (British and American) has "come forth" for "come" (Matthew 2:6); "gone up" for "come" (Matthew 14:32, a different text); "come all the way" for "come" (John 4:15); "got out upon the" for "come to" (John 21:9); "draw near" for "come" (Hebrews 4:16); "come" for "come and see" (Revelation 6:1); "secure" for "come by" (Acts 27:16); "attain unto" for "come in" (Ephesians 4:13); and "I come" for "I come again" (John 14:28).
