ἄβυσσος ábyssos, ab'-us-sos; from G1 (as a negative particle) and a variation of G1037; depthless, i.e. (specially) (infernal) "abyss":—deep, (bottomless) pit.
STRONGS NT 12: ἄβυσσος
ἄβυσσος, in classic Greek an adjective, -ος, -ον, (from βυσσός equivalent to βυθός), bottomless (so perhaps in Wis. 10:19), unbounded (πλοῦτος ἄβυσσος, Aeschylus, the Sept. (931) 950). in the Scriptures ἄβυσσος (Sept. for תְּהום) namely, χώρα, the pit, the immeasurable depth, the abyss. Hence, of 'the deep' sea: Genesis 1:2; Genesis 7:11; Deuteronomy 8:7; Sir. 1:3 Sir. 16:18, etc.; of Orcus (a very deep gulf or chasm in the lowest parts of the earth: Psalm 70:21 (Ps. 71:20) ἐκ τῶν ἀβύσσων τῆς γῆς, Euripides, Phoen. 1632 (1605) ταρτάρου ἄβυσσα χάσματα, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 20, 5 ἀβύσσων ἀνεξιχνίαστα κλίματα, ibid. 59, 3 ἐπιβλέπων ἐν ταῖς ἀβύσσοις, of God; [Act. Thom. 32 τήν ἄβυσσον τοῦ ταρτάρου οἴκων, of the dragon]), both as the common receptacle of the dead, Romans 10:7, and especially as the abode of demons, Luke 8:31; Revelation 9:1; Revelation 9:11; Revelation 11:7; Revelation 17:8; Revelation 20:1, 3. Among secular authors used as a substantive only by Diogenes Laërtius 4 (5) 27 κατῆλθες εἰς μέλαιναν Πλουτέως ἄβυσσον. Cf. Knapp, Scripta var. Arg., p. 554f; [J. G. Müller, Philo's Lehre von der Weltschöpfung, p. 173f; B. D. American edition under the word Deep].
