Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 4651: σκορπίος

σκορπίος, σκορπίου, ((for the derivation see the preceding word); from Aeschylus down; on its accent, cf. Chandler § 246), a scorpion, the Sept. for עַקְרָב, the name of a little animal, somewhat resembling a lobster, which in warm regions lurks especially in stone walls; it has a poisonous sting in its tail (McClintock and Strong's Cyclopaedia and BB. DD., under the word): Luke 10:19; Luke 11:12; Revelation 9:3, 5, 10.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

Probably from an obsolete skerpo (perhaps strengthened from the base of skopos and meaning to pierce); a "scorpion" (from its sting) -- scorpion.
