gôr´jus , gôr´jus - 51 ( מכלול , mikhlōl ; λαμπρός , lamprós ) "gorgeous" ( Luke 23:11 ); "Herod ... arrayed him in a gorgeous robe," the Revised Version (British and American) "gorgeous apparel." We have also in Luke 7:25 , "They that are gorgeously appareled (éndoxos , "splendid," "glorious") ... are in kings' courts." They were scarcely to be looked for among the prophets, or in the new community of Jesus.
