[1] Same or similar material in other lexica. The headword -- masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective -- is evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps, as S.A. Naber suggested, the Septuagint: Wisdom of Solomon 7.26).

Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; imagery; religion
