hor'-i-b'-l (sha`arur, sha`aruri): In Jer 5:30 sha`arur, "vile," "horrible," is translated "horrible," "a wonderful and horrible thing" the Revised Version margin "astonishment and horror"; also Jer 23:14; in 18:13; Hos 6:10 it is sha`aruri; in Ps 11:6 we have zil`aphah, "heat," the Revised Version (British and American) "burning wind"; in Ps 40:2 sha'on, "noise," "tumult," "He brought me up .... out of a horrible pit," the Revised Version margin "a pit of tumult" (or destruction). Horribly is the translation of sa`ar, "to shudder," "to be whirled away," in Jer 2:12, and of sa`ar, "fear," "trembling," in Ezek 32:10; in Ezek 27:35 the Revised Version (British and American) has "horribly afraid" (sa`ar) for "sore afraid." "Horrible" occurs frequently in Apocrypha (2 Esdras 11:45; 15:28,34; The Wisdom of Solomon 3:19, "For horrible (chalepos) is the end of the unrighteous generation" the Revised Version (British and American) "grievous" etc.).
