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: ζῶον
ζῶον [or ζῷον (so L WH uniformly, Treg. in Hebrews and Revelations; see Etym. Magn. 413, 24, and references under the word Ι, ι)], -ου, τό, (ζωός 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: ζῶον 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 ζ. is fitly rendered living creature in contradistinction to the θηρίον beast, cf. Revelation 11:7; Revelation 13:1, etc. See Trench § 81; Schmidt 2, chapter 70.]
