The word is ἔκστασις, 'ecstasy,' in which, as it were, the mind is carried beyond the body. It is translated 'astonishment' in Mark 5:42 ; and 'amazement' in Acts 3:10 . It is rendered 'trance' when Peter had the vision of the sheet let down from heaven; and when Paul in the temple saw the Lord and heard Him speak to him. Acts 10:10 ; Acts 11:5 ; Acts 22:17 . The same word is used in the LXX for the deep sleep of Adam and of Abram. Genesis 2:21 ; Genesis 15:12 .
