ri'-ut: Properly, "unrestrained behavior" of any sort, but in modern English usually connoting mob action, although such phrases as a "riotous banquet" are still in common use. the King James Version uses the word in the first sense, and it is retained by the Revised Version (British and American) in Lk 15:13; Tit 1:6; 1 Pet 4:4 for asotos, asotia, "having no hope of safety," "profligate]." In Prov 23:20; 28:7 the Revised Version (British and American) has preferred "gluttonous," "glutton," in Rom 13:13, "revelling," and in 2 Pet 2:13, "revel."
