Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
καύσων kaúsōn, kow'-sone; from G2741; a glare:—(burning) heat.
STRONGS NT 2742: καύσων
καύσων, καύσωνος, ;
1. burning heat of the sun: Matthew 20:12; Luke 12:55; James 1:11 (others refer all these passages to the next entry); (Isaiah 49:10; (Genesis 31:40 Alex.; cf. Judith 8:3); Sir. 18:16; Athen. 3, p. 73 b.).
2. Eurus, a very dry, hot, east wind, scorching and drying up everything; for קָדִים, Job 27:21; Hosea 12:1; ἄνεμος καύσων, Jeremiah 18:17; Ezekiel 17:10; Hosea 13:15: πνευαμ καύσων, Jonah 4:8 (cf. Hosea 12:1); (on this wind cf. Schleusner, Thesaurus ad Sept. iii., p. 297; Winers RWB (also BB. DD.) under the word ). Many suppose it to be referred to in James 1:11; yet the evils there mentioned are ascribed not to the καύσων, but to the ἥλιος.
