International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

sting (parash, "to cut into"; kentron, "a goad," "spur"): A sharp, pointed organ or instrument for inflicting wounds by puncture; sting of an adder, Proverbs 23:32; of scorpions, Revelation 9:10. In the free quotation of 1 Corinthians 15:55 from Hosea 13:14, death is personified as a deadly animal, like a scorpion or serpent, which inflicts destruction by means of sin as its kentron. It should also be remembered that in Acts 26:14 the same Greek word is used with reference to an instrument for exciting fear, rather than death. Both figures are pertinent; for death is powerless, except through sin, and, also, when sin is vanquished, the fear of death (Hebrews 2:15) is gone.

H. E. Jacobs

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (v. t.) Any sharp organ of offense and defense, especially when connected with a poison gland, and adapted to inflict a wound by piercing; as the caudal sting of a scorpion. The sting of a bee or wasp is a modified ovipositor. The caudal sting, or spine, of a sting ray is a modified dorsal fin ray. The term is sometimes applied to the fang of a serpent.

2. (n.) A sharp-pointed hollow hair seated on a gland which secrets an acrid fluid, as in nettles. The points of these hairs usually break off in the wound, and the acrid fluid is pressed into it.

3. (v. t.) Anything that gives acute pain, bodily or mental; as, the stings of remorse; the stings of reproach.

4. (n.) The thrust of a sting into the flesh; the act of stinging; a wound inflicted by stinging.

5. (n.) A goad; incitement.

6. (n.) The point of an epigram or other sarcastic saying.

7. (v. t.) To pierce or wound with a sting; as, bees will sting an animal that irritates them; the nettles stung his hands.

8. (v. t.) To pain acutely; as, the conscience is stung with remorse; to bite.

9. (v. t.) To goad; to incite, as by taunts or reproaches.
