Stomach

STOMACH (στόμαχος, G5126). The upper digestive tract. “Stomach” in RSV is occasionally the tr. of Heb. or Gr. terms more accurately rendered “bowels” or “belly,” that part of the body between the lower ribs and the groins. As the seat of physical satisfaction or lust it is mentioned in Proverbs 13:25; Jeremiah 51:34; Ezekiel 3:3; Luke 15:16; Romans 16:18; and Philippians 3:19. In the latter two cases the reference is to those who give first place to physical appetites.
