Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
κέρας kéras, ker'-as; from a primary κάρ kár (the hair of the head); a horn (literally or figuratively):—horn.
STRONGS NT 2768: κέρας
κέρας, κερατος, plural κέρατα, genitive κεράτων (Winers Grammar, 65 (63); Buttmann, 15 (13)), τό (from Homer down), Hebrew קֶרֶן, a horn;
a. properly: of animals, Revelation 5:6; Revelation 12:3; Revelation 13:1, 11; Revelation 17:3, 7, 12, 16.
b. Since animals (especially bulls) defend themselves with their horns, the horn with the Hebrews (and other nations) is a symbol of strength and courage, and is used as such in a variety of phrases (Psalm 88:18 (Ps. 89:18); Psalm 131:17 (Ps. 132:17); Psalms 148:14; 1 Samuel 2:10; Sir. 47:5, 7, 11; 1 Macc. 2:48, etc.; cf. Gesenius, Thesaurus, iii., p. 1238; (B. D. under the word )); hence, κέρας σωτηρίας (of God, Psalm 17:3 (Ps. 18:3); 2 Samuel 22:3), equivalent to a mighty and valiant helper, the author of deliverance, of the Messiah, Luke 1:69.
c. tropically, a projecting extremity in shape like a horn, a point, apex: as, of an altar, Revelation 9:13; (Exodus 29:12; Leviticus 4:7, 18; Leviticus 16:18; Amos 3:14; Psalm 117:27 (Ps. 118:27)).
