λάρυγξ, λάρυγγος, , the throat (Etym. Magn. (557, 16): λάρυγξ μέν δἰ οὗ λαλοῦμεν ... φάρυγξ δέ δἰ οὗ ἐσθίομεν καί πίνομεν): of the instrument or organ of speech (as Psalm 5:10; Proverbs 8:7; Sir. 6:5(4)), Romans 3:13, where the meaning is, their speech threatens and imprecates destruction to others. (Aristophanes, Euripides, Aristotle, Galen, others; the Sept. several times for גָּרון; more often for חֵך, the palate.)
