Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

ἔκ-τρωμα, ατος, τό,

= παιδίον νεκρὸν ἄωρον, Hsch.; untimely birth, Arist. GA 773b18 (pl.), LXX Job 3:16, al., 1 Corinthians 15:8, Ph. 1.59; as a term of contempt, Tz. H. 5.515.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἔκτρωμα, ἐκτρωτος, τό (ἐκτιτρώσκω to cause or to suffer abortion; like ἔκβρωμα from ἐκβιβρώσκω), an abortion, abortive birth; an untimely birth: 1 Corinthians 15:8, where Paul likens himself to an ἔκτρωμα, and in 1 Corinthians 15:9 explains in what sense: that he is as inferior to the rest of the apostles as an immature birth comes short of a mature one, and is no more worthy of the name of an apostle than an abortion is of the name of a child. (Numbers 12:12; Ecclesiastes 6:3; Job 3:16; in Greek first used by Aristotle, de gen. an. 4, 5, 4 (p. 773b, 18); but, as Phrynichus shows, p. 208f, Lob. edition (288f, edition Rutherford), ἀμβλωμα and ἐξαμβλωμα are preferable; (Huxtable in Expositor for Apr. 1882, p. 277ff; Lightfoot Ignatius ad Rom. 9 [ET], p. 230 f).)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (1 Corinthians 15:8, cf. Numbers 12:12) may be illustrated from the verb in P Goodsp Cairo 15.15 (A.D. 362) where a complaint is made with reference to certain persons—τὴν μὲν Τάησιν βαρέαν οὖσαν ἐκ τῶν πληγῶν αὐτῶν ἐξέτρωσεν (l. αν) τὸ βρέφος, ";to Taesis who was pregnant they occasioned by their violence the miscarriage of her child"; (Ed.). Cf. also Apoc. Petr. II αὗται δὲ ἦσαν α [ἱ τὰ βρέφη φθείρο ]υσαι καὶ ἐκτρώσασαι. Ἐκτρωσμός is found Preisigke 3451.5, .10. Hesych. : ἔκτρωμα · παιδίον νεκρὸν ἄωρον. ἐκ ̣βολὴ γυναικός. For the form see Moulton Gr. ii. § 119 (b).
