KJV Dictionary / W / wonder

KJV Dictionary Definition: wonder

wonder

WONDER, n. G., Gr., to show; and hence a sight; a panic.

1. That emotion which is excited by novelty, or the presentation to the sight or mind, of something new, unusual, strange, great, extraordinary, or not well understood; something that arrests the attention by its novelty, grandeur or inexplicableness. Wonder expresses less than astonishment, and much less than amazement. It differs from admiration, in not being necessarily accompanied with love, esteem or approbation, nor directed to persons. But wonder sometimes is nearly allied to astonishment, and the exact extent of the meaning of such words can hardly be graduated.

Wonder is the effect of novelty upon ignorance.
