βδέλυγμα is ";a bibl. and eccl. word"; in Grimm, and we are not able to challenge its right to a place in this greatly reduced category. But it is almost as much a part of the verb as βδελυκτός , which likewise has independent status on Grimm’s page. The verb having appealed to the LXX translators as an excellent rendering of תָּעַב and other Hebrew verbs, it was inevitable that when a derived noun was wanted the regular formation should have been adopted or coined. Probably any Greek writer who wanted to express the idea of τὸ ἐβδελυγμένον would have done the same without hesitation.
