(n.) Imposing through splendid or various colors; showy; fine; magnificent.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
GORGEOUS; GORGEOUSLY

gor'-jus, gor'-jus-li (mikhlol; lampros): Mikhlol occurs twice in the Old Testament, translated in the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) "most gorgeously" (Ezekiel 23:12); in Ezekiel 38:4, the King James Version translates "all sorts" (of armor), the Revised Version (British and American) "clothed in full armor." Lampros ("shining," "bright"), is only once translated "gorgeous" (Luke 23:11); "Herod. arrayed him in a gorgeous robe," the Revised Version (British and American) "gorgeous apparel." We have also in Luke 7:25, "They that are gorgeously appareled (endoxos, "splendid," "glorious"). are in kings' courts." They were scarcely to be looked for among the prophets, or in the new community of Jesus.
