Greek - which fell down from Jupiter
JUPITER

(jyoo' pih tuhr) Latin name of Zeus, king of Greek gods. KJV translates Zeus as Jupiter (Acts 13:12-13). God worked through Paul to heal a crippled man at Lystra. The people responded by claiming the gods had come to earth. They named Barnabas, Zeus or Jupiter. The priest of Jupiter tried to offer sacrifices to them. Paul used the opportunity for evangelistic preaching. KJV also inserts Jupiter in Acts 19:35, referring to the image of Artemis or Diana, the goddess for whose worship Ephesus was famous. The Greek says the image fell from heaven (NRSV, NAS, REB, NIV, TEV). See Greece, Religion and Society of.
