Colossians 4:3   1 Timothy 5:13   Philemon 22  

There are 7 uses of "withal" in the King James New Testament. The traditional archaic meaning of the word is "with that" or "therewith", which is appropriate for Acts 25:27, Mark 10:39, Luke 6:38, and 1 Corinthians 12:7.

But, the remaining uses are for the Greek "hama" in the phrase "hama de kai" or "hama kai", which is better translated "at the same time." This may be made more clear by the following chart:

Verse Greek Phrase Literal Greek KJV Translation
Colossians 4:3 hama kai [at the same time] [also] withal ... also
1 Timothy 5:13 hama de kai [at the same time] [then] [also] withal
Philemon 22 hama de kai [at the same time] [now] [also] withal ... also
