International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

del'-i-ka-si (to strenos): Found only in Revelation 18:3, King James Version: "The merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." the Revised Version (British and American) has very properly changed delicacies to "wantonness," and "luxury" in the margin, which is much nearer to the original.
