HELPS word-Studies

2351 thórybos – properly, an uproar, tumult; trouble (accompanied by noisy upheaval) that throws things into disorder; (figuratively) emotions spun "out of control," especially when accompanied by shrieks (hysteria) or loud wailing; disturbance bringing on panic (terror) with a "din, hubbub" (Souter).

(Mk 5:35-39) Josephus (ad 1st century) reports that hired flute players were common in NT times. They performed public lamentations so the haunting sound of the flute became synonymous with death (tragedy, mourning).

[Professional mourners (generally women) are still employed in the Middle East.]
