Stumbling-stone

stum’-bling-blok, (mikhshol, makhshelah; proskomma, skandalon): These are the most important of the varied renderings of either of two cognate Hebrew words, or of two different Greek words. Sometimes the Greek word for "stone" (lithos) accompanies the principal word. There is no important difference in the meaning of the words or of their renderings. the [[Revised Version]] (British and American) generally substitutes "stumbling" for "offence" of the [[King James Version]].
