Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
τέρας téras, ter'-as; of uncertain affinity; a prodigy or omen:—wonder.
τέρας, genitive τερατος, pl. τέρατα (cf. κέρας, at the beginning), τό (apparently akin to the verb τερρέω; accordingly something so strange as to cause it to be 'watched' or 'observed'; (others connect it with ἀστήρ, ἀστραπή, etc., hence, 'a sign in the heavens'; Vanicek, p. 1146; Curtius, § 205); see Fritzsche, Ep. ad Romans iii., p. 270), from Homer down, the Sept. for מופֵת, a prodigy, portent; miracle (A. V. wonder) performed by anyone; in the N. T. it is found only in the plural and joined with σημεῖα; for the passages see σημεῖον, p. 574{a}.
