Cha’os (ka’os).
Confusion; that confused mass of elemental substances supposed to have existed before God reduced creation into order. The poet Hesiod is the first extant writer that speaks of it.   1
“Light, uncollected, through the chaos urged
Its infant way, nor order yet bad drawn
His lovely train from out the dubious gloom.”
Thomson: Autumn, 732–4.
