is translated "hunger" in Luke 15:17 ; 2 Corinthians 11:27 ; elsewhere it signifies "a famine," and is so translated in each place in the RV; the AV has the word "dearth" in Acts 7:11 ; 11:28 , and "hunger" in Revelation 6:8 ; the RV "famine" is preferable there; see Matthew 24:7 ; Mark 13:8 ; Luke 4:25 ; 15:14 ; 21:11 ; Romans 8:35 ; Revelation 18:8 .
