STRONGS NT 792: ἀστήρ
ἀστήρ, -έρος, , [from the root, star (probably, as strewn over the sky), cf. ἄστρον, Latin stella, German Stern, English star; Fick, Part i. 250; Curtius, § 205; Vanicek, p. 1146; from Homer down]; a star: Matthew 2:7, 9, 10 [accusative, -έραν א* C; see ἄρσην at the end]; Matt 24:29; Mark 13:25; 1 Corinthians 15:41; Revelation 6:13; Revelation 8:10-12; Revelation 9:1; Revelation 12:1, 4; ἀστὴρ αὐτοῦ, the star betokening his birth, Matthew 2:2 (i. e. 'the star of the Messiah,' on which cf. Bertholdt, Christologia Judaeorum § 14; Anger, Der Stern der Weisen, in Niedner's Zeitschr. f. d. histor. Theol. for 1847, fasc. 3; [B. D. under the word Star of the Wise Men]); by the figure of the seven stars which Christ holds in his right hand, Revelation 1:16; Revelation 2:1; Revelation 3:1, are signified the angels of the seven churches, under the direction of Christ, Revelation 1:20; see what was said under the word ἄγγελος, 2. ἀστὴρ πρωϊνός the morning star, Revelation 22:16 [Rec. ὀρθρινός]; Revelation 2:28 (δώσω αὐτῷ τὸν ἀστέρα τ. πρωϊνόν I will give to him the morning star, that he may be irradiated with its splendor and outshine all others, i. e. I will cause his heavenly glory to excel that of others). ἀστέρες πλανῆται, wandering stars, Jude 1:13 (these are not planets, the motion of which is scarcely noticed by the commonalty, but far more probably comets, which Jude regards as stars which have left the course prescribed them by God, and wander about at will — cf. Enoch 18:15, and so are a fit symbol of men πλανῶντες καὶ πλανώμενοι, 2 Timothy 3:13).
