International Standard Bible EncyclopediaASTONISHMENT
as-ton'-ish-ment: Amazement; mental surprise, excitement, wonder; often the cause of the startled emotion, as in Deuteronomy 28:37: "Thou shall become an astonishment." The chosen people, visited with calamities for idolatry would become a source of amazement to all nations (Jeremiah 25:9, 11, 18); Solomon's' lofty and beautiful temple would be "an astonishment" (2 Chronicles 7:21 the King James Version).
