Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means resistant. If you're resisting things, then you're enduring and withstanding them. That's why this is to endure and to withstand.
Kyoko(Tokyo accent, female)
Kenichi(Tokyo accent, male)
What is it that you have to endure? A barrage of tacos (た), coming at you.
