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

a-tan': The rendering of qanah = "buy," "get" (Proverbs 1:5); nasagh= "reach," "a meal-offering .... according as he is able" (Ezekiel 46:7 margin), "not attained unto the days" (Genesis 47:9); yakhol or yakhowl ="be able," "overcome," "attain to innocency" (Hosea 8:5); bo' = "come," "follow" (II Samuel 23:19, II Samuel 23:23; I Chronicles 11:21, I Chronicles 11:25); katantao="arrive at" (Acts 27:12 the King James Version; Philippians 3:11); katalambano ="take eagerly," "seize," "apprehend," "attained to righteousness" (Romans 9:30); phthano ="have arrived at" (Romans 9:31 the King James Version; Philippians 3:16); lambano -"take," "get a hold of," "catch," the Revised Version (British and American) "already obtained" (Philippians 3:12); parakoloutheo = "follow," "trace out," "conform to" (I Timothy 4:6). Here the Revised Version (British and American) corrects the King James Version.
