a -frı̄t ´: Designates a state of terror occasioned by some unexpected and startling occurrence; not as strong as "amazed," which refers more to the stupor resulting from fright. In the New Testament most frequently for ἔμφοβος , émphobos (Luke 24:37 ; Acts 10:4 ; Revelation 11:13 ). The Revised Version (British and American) uses it also for pturómenoi of Philippians 1:28 , a word "properly used of scared horses" (Ellicott).
