Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g887 Greek: achlus


"a mist," especially a dimness of the eyes, is used in Act 13:11. "In the single place of its NT use it attests the accuracy in the selection of words, and not least of medical words, which 'the beloved physician' so often displays. For him it expresses the mist of darkness... which fell on the sorcerer Elymas, being the outward and visible sign of the inward spiritual darkness which would be his portion for a while in punishment for his resistance to the truth" (Trench, Syn., c).

2 Strong's Number: g3658 Greek: homichle


"a mist" (not so thick as nephos and nephele, "a cloud"), occurs in 2Pe 2:17 (1st part), RV, "mists;" some mss. have nephelai, "clouds" (AV).

3 Strong's Number: g2217 Greek: zophos


is rendered "mist" in the AV of 2Pe 2:17 (2nd part), RV, "blackness;" "murkiness" would be a suitable rendering. For this and other synonymous terms see BLACKNESS, DARKNESS.
