vorhalten

Meanings

1.
to hold something in front
(Think of holding a mirror front of you. Actually, that's kind of the only context in which you'll see this meaning.)
2.
to have in reserve, to have on stock
(A formal, technical sounding verb for "having something ready to be used")
3.
to last
(Usually used in the context of a good meal "lasting" for a fair bit of time. Pretty rare otherwise. )
4.
to reproach someone for something
("jemandem etwas vorhalten" - this is the most common use out of all of them, but still, it's not very common. Sounds a bit more moderate than "vorwerfen".)
