KJV Translation Count — Total: 5x
The KJV translates Strong's G2759 in the following manner: sting (3x), prick (2x).
  1. a sting, as that of bees, scorpions, locusts. Since animals wound by their sting and even cause death, Paul attributes death, personified as a sting, i.e. a deadly weapon

  2. an iron goad, for urging on oxen, horses and other beasts of burden

    1. hence the proverb, "to kick against the goad", i.e. to offer vain and perilous or ruinous resistance

STRONGS NT 2759: κέντρον
κέντρον, κέντρου, τό (κεντέω to prick);
1. a sting, as that of bees (4 Macc. 14:19), scorpions, locusts, Revelation 9:10. Since animals wound by their sting and even cause death, Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:55 (after Hosea 13:14, the Sept.) attributes to death, personified, a κέντρον, i. e. a deadly weapon, and that κέντρον is said to be ἁμαρτία (56), because sin is death's cause and punishment (?) (Romans 5:12).
2. as in the Greek writings an iron goad, for urging on oxen, horses and other beasts of burden; hence, the proverb πρός κέντρα λακτίζειν, to kick against the goad, i. e. to offer vain and perilous or ruinous resistance: Acts 9:5 Rec.; Acts 26:14; cf. Pindar Pythagoras 2, 173; Aeschylus (Ag. 1624, cf.) Prom. 323; Euripides, Bacch. 795; Terent. Phorm. 1, 2, 28; Ammian. 18, 5.
