HELPS word-Studies

517 aóratos (from 1 /A "not" and 3708 /horáō, "see") – properly, not seen; invisible to the physical ("naked") eye; (figuratively) spiritual reality as perceived through God's inbirthings of faith. Accordingly, 517 (aóratos) and faith (4102 /pístis) are closely associated (Ro 1:17-20; 1 Tim 1:17-19; Heb 11:27).

The antonym of faith is not fear – but sight!

Heb 11:27: "By faith (4102 /pístis) he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is unseen (517 /aóratos)" (NASU).

NAS Exhaustive Concordance
