International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
AFFRIGHT

a-frit': Designates a state of terror occasioned by some unexpected and startling occurrence; not as strong as "amazed," which refers more to the stupor resulting from fright. In the New Testament most frequently for emphobos (Luke 24:37 Acts 10:4 Revelation 11:13). The Revised Version (British and American) uses it also for pturomenoi of Philippians 1:28, a word "properly used of scared horses" (Ellicott).
