Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Hort (on James 1:6) has pointed out that the proper sense of κλύδων is always ";rough water"; rather than ";wave"; : cf. Luke 8:24, 1 Maccabees 6:11, and to the passages from profane sources cited by Armitage Robinson on Ephesians 4:14 add M. Anton. xii. 14 . The plur. = ";waves"; is found in Vett. Val. p. 344.15 with reference to a ship exposed τοῖς. . μυρίοις κλύδωσιν.
