Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Hellenistic noun from ancient verb βδελύσσομαι (bdelússomai)/-ττομαι (I am disgusted; despise) (stem: *βδελύτj) from adjective βδελῠρός (bdelurós) from *βδελυλός, which originates from the verb βδέω (bdéō, fart) from Indo-European *pezd- (Cognates, Latin pēdō > French péter). Also see βδύλλω (bdúllō, I am terribly afraid, I fart from fear).

Unlike all the other cognates which were connected to the sense "fart", this noun first appears (with frequency) at the Old Testament translation in Greek, with sense "deeds or idols repugnant to God".
