Strong’s Greek Lexicon
(“scandalize”); from G4625; to entrap, i.e., to trip up (fig. stumble [trans.]) or entice to sin, apostacy or displeasure):—(make to) offend.
Owing to changes in the enumeration while in progress, there were no words left for numbers 2717 and 3203–3302, which were therefore silently dropped out of the vocabulary and references as redundant.
