HAVOC

hav'-ok: "Devastation," "to make havoc of" is the translation of lumainomai, "to stain," "to disgrace"; in the New Testament "to injure," "destroy" (Acts 8:3, "As for Saul he made havoc of the church," the Revised Version (British and American) "laid waste"; 1 Macc 7:7, "what havoc," the Revised Version (British and American) "all the havock," exolothreusis, "utter destruction").
The Revised Version has "made havoc of" (portheo) for "destroyed" (Acts 9:21; Gal 1:23), for "wasted" (Gal 1:13).
