Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This originally poetic word (Thumb Dial. p. 373) is confined in the NT to the Lukan writings, where, to judge from Acts 3:10, it is to be regarded as neuter : cf. gen. sing. θάμβους in Song of Solomon 3:8 (Thackeray Gr. i. p. 158). On the other hand in Lk 4.86 the Bezan text has θ. μέγας : cf. Ecclesiastes 12:5 θάμβοι.
