Horror

HORROR

hor'-er ('emah, pallatsuth):

In Genesis 15:12 'emah (often rendered "terror") is translated "horror," "a horror of great darkness"; pallatsuth, "trembling," "horror" (Psalms 55:5; Ezekiel 7:18); zal`aphah, "glow," "heat" (Psalms 119:53, the Revised Version (British and American) "hot indignation," margin "horror"); compare Psalms 11:6; Lamentations 5:10. For "trembling" (Job 21:6) and for "fearfulness" (Isaiah 21:4) the Revised Version (British and American) has "horror." "Horror" does not occur in the New Testament, but in 2 Macc 3:17 we have "The man was so compassed with horror" (phrikasmos), the Revised Version (British and American) "shuddering."
