ya the word for trance is not even used in 2 Corinthians 5:13
“For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.”

this is the KJV.

and to clarify the definition

G1611
ἔκστασις
ekstasis
Thayer Definition:
1) any casting down of a thing from its proper place or state, displacement
2) a throwing of the mind out of its normal state, alienation of mind, whether such as makes a lunatic or that of a man who by some sudden emotion is transported as it were out of himself, so that in this rapt condition, although he is awake, his mind is drawn off from all surrounding objects and wholly fixed on things divine that he sees nothing but the forms and images lying within, and thinks that he perceives with his bodily eyes and ears realities shown him by God.
3) amazement, the state of one who, either owing to the importance or the novelty of an event, is thrown into a state of blended fear and wonderment
