found in the NT only in Judges 1:12, is generally understood as = ";rock,"; ";reef,"; in accordance with its poetic classical usage : cf. Kaibel 225.1 f. where it is said of a man who had precipitated himself from a rock—
Ὀστέα μὲν καὶ σάρκας ἐμὰς σπιλάδες διέχευαν
ὀξεῖαι, κρημνῶν ἅλμα ὑποδεξάμεναι.
Others prefer the rendering ";spot,"; ";stain,"; as if = σπίλος (q.v.), which is found in the parallel passage 2 Peter 2:13 : cf. Lightfoot Revision, p. 152 f. More recently A. D. Knox has shown good ground (JTS xiv. (1913), p. 547 ff., xvi. (1915), p. 78) for taking the word as an adj. with ἄνεμος understood, ";a dirty, foul wind,"; producing a correspondingly troubled and stormy effect on the water : cf. Isaiah 57:20.
