Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The meaning of this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. in Revelation 18:21 is doubtful. It is often rendered ";a rush,"; ";a mighty onset,"; as in Deuteronomy 28:49, but Charles (ICC ad l. = II. p. 107 f.) suggests that the meaning is rather ";indignation,"; as in Hosea 5:10 al. See s.v. ὁρμή ad fin.
