Strong's #1823 - ἐξαστράπτω
flash as with lightning, LXX Nahum 3:3, Luke 9:29; of the sun's light, Zos.Alch. p.111 B.; φόβῳ καὶ κάλλεϊ Tryph. 103.
See s.v. ἀστράπτω. The compound, which occurs in the NT only in Luke 9:29 (cf. LXX Ezekiel 1:4; Ezekiel 1:7, Nahum 3:3) may convey the idea of ";flashing forth"; as from an inward source (cf. Farrar CGT ad l.), but is perhaps simply intensive, ";dazzling"; (RV).
