STRONGS NT 946: βδέλυγμα

βδέλυγμα, βδελύγματος, τό (βδελύσσομαι), a Biblical and ecclesiastical word; in the Sept. mostly for תּועֵבָה, also for שִׁקוּץ and שֶׁקֶץ, a foul thing (loathsome on acct. of its stench), a detestable thing; (Tertullianabominamentum); Luth.Greuel; (A. V. abomination);

a. universally: Luke 16:15.

b. in the O. T. often used of idols and things pertaining to idolatry, to be held in abomination by the Israelites; as 1 Kings 11:6 (); (); 2 Kings 16:3; 2 Kings 21:2; 1 Esdr. 7:13; Wis. 12:23 Wis. 14:11; hence, in the N. T. in Revelation 17:4f of idol-worship and its impurities; ποιεῖν βδέλυγμα ψεῦδος, Revelation 21:27.

c. the expression τό βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως the desolating abomination (others take the genitive, others; e. g. Meyer as a genitive epexegetical) in Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14 (1 Macc. 1:54), seems to designate some terrible event in the Jewish war by which the temple was desecrated, perhaps that related by Josephus, b. j. 4, 9, 11ff (the Sept. Daniel 11:31; Daniel 12:11, βδέλυγμα (τῆς) ἐρημώσεως for מְשֹׁמֵם שִׁקּוּץ and שֹׁמֵם שִׁקוּץ, Daniel 9:27 βδέλυγμα τῶν ἐρημώσεων for מְשֹׁמֵם שִׁקוּצִים the abomination (or abominations) wrought by the desolator, i. e. not the statue of Jupiter Olympius, but a little idol-altar placed upon the altar of whole burnt offerings; cf. Grimm on 1 Macc., p. 31; Hengstenberg, Authentie des Daniel, p. 85f; (the principal explanations of the N. T. phrase are noticed in Dr. James Morison's Commentary on Matthew, the passage cited).)


From bdelusso; a detestation, i.e. (specially) idolatry -- abomination.
