Vocabulary of the Greek NT

a late form of ταραχή, is found in Acts 12:18; Acts 19:23, where it is masculine. For exx. of τὸ τάραχος in the LXX see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 159. According to Hobart (p. 93) the word is common in medical writers. Linde, Epicurus p. 24, quotes three passages from Epicurus for τάραχος (masc.) = ";disturbance,"; ";alarm,"; and notes two occurrences of the form ταραχή. See also Rutherford NP, p. 174.
