KJV Translation Count — Total: 23x
The KJV translates Strong's G2226 in the following manner: beast (23x).

Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ζῶον zōon, dzo'-on; neuter of a derivative of G2198; a live thing, i.e. an animal:—beast.
STRONGS NT 2226: ζοων
ζοων (or ζοων (so L WH uniformly, Treg. in Heb. and Rev.; see Etym. Magn. 413, 24, and references under the word Iota)), ζοωυ, τό, (ζοως alive);
1. a living being.
2. an animal, brute, beast: Hebrews 13:11; 2 Peter 2:12; Jude 1:10; Revelation 4:6-9 (on Revelation 4:8 cf. Buttmann, 130 (114)), etc. [SYNONYMS: ζοων differs from θηρίον (at least etymologically; but cf. Schmidt as below) in giving prominence to the vital element, while θηρίον emphasizes the bestial element. Hence, in Revelation as above ζοων is fitly rendered living creature in contradistinction to the θηρίον beast, cf. Revelation 11:7; Revelation 13:1, etc. See Trench, § lxxxi.; Schmidt ii., chapter 70.]
