STRONGS NT 2946: κύλισμα

κύλισμα, κυλισματος, τό (κυλίω, which see), thing rolled: with epexegetical genitive βορβόρου, rolled (wallowed) mud or mire, 2 Peter 2:22 (R G L Tr marginal reading). The great majority take the word to mean 'wallowing-place', as if it were the same as κυλίστρα (Vulg.in volutabro luti). But just as τό ἐξέραμα signifies the vomit, thing vomited, and not the place of vomiting; so τό κύλισμα denotes nothing else than the thing rolled or wallowed. But see (the following word, and) βόρβορος.
