Jeremiah 1/ Synonymous Words Used for Sin, Wickedness, Evil, Ungodliness, Disobedience, Transgression

The Synonymous Words Used for "Sin", "Wickedness", "Evil", "Ungodliness", "Disobedience", "Transgression", etc.
This Is Appendix 128 From The Companion Bible.

  1.  SIN.
    1. The Verb.
         hamartano = to miss the mark of aim; then, to miss or wander from the right path; to go, or do wrong.

    2. The Noun.

    1. harmartia = a failing to hit the mark; aberration from prescribed law (connected with and resulting from the above). In New Testament always in a moral sense = a sin, whether by omission or commission, in thought, word or deed. Also used in connection with the sin-offering (Hebrews 10:6, 8, 18; 13:11, as in Psalm 40:6, compare Leviticus 5:8).

    2. harmartema = the actual sin. The evil principle in action; the sinful act or deed.

    3. paratoma = a falling aside, when one should have stood upright. Hence (morally) a fall, a falling aside, from truth and equity; a fault, or trespass.

       In Romans 5:12, Number 1 entered the world. The disobedience of Adam (verses 15,17,18) was Number 3, and the law entered that Number 3 which before was error, might become criminal in the knowledge of the sinner. After this, where Number 1 abounded, grace did much more abound.

    1. poneria = depravity; iniquity, the wicked acting of the evil nature. See Number III. 1. below.

    2. kakia = depravity, the vicious disposition and desires, rather than the active exercise of them, which is Number 1 (poneria).

  3.  EVIL (Adj. and Noun).
    1. poneros = full of labours and pains in working mischief; evil intent (Matthew 12:39. Luke 11:29); grudging, in connection with the idea expressed in the "evil eye" (Matthew 6:23; 20:15. See the context, and compare Luke 11:13).

    2. kakos = depraved, bad in nature. Compare Number II. 2.

    3. anomos = lawless, contempt of law.

    4. anomia = lawlessness.

    5. athesmos = breaking through all restraints of ordinances of institutes, divine or human to gratify one's lusts. Occurs only in 2 Peter 2:7; 3:17.

  5. asebeia = impiety, absence of "the fear of God", having no reverence for sacred things; irreligious. Septuagint for pasha'. Appendix 44. ix.

    1. apeitheia = unwillingness to be persuaded, leading to obstinacy.

    2. parakoe = unwillingness to hear, disobedient.

    1. parabaino = to step on one side, overstep, go aside from, violate, transgress.

    2. parerchomai = to go past, pass by, neglect.

    3. parabates, = one who steps aside, or oversteps.

    1. adikia = unrighteousness, wrongdoing.

    2. adikema = a wrong done.

    3. paranomia = acting contrary to law or custom. Occ. only in 2 Peter 2:16.

  9.  ERR, ERROR.
    1. planao = to cause to wander or go astray; used of doctrinal error and religious deceit. Compare planos (1 Timothy 4:1, "seducing").

    2. apoplanao. = Number 1 with apo = away from, prefixed (Appendix 104. iv). In Pass., to go astray from, swerve. Occ. only in Mark 13:22 and 1 Timothy 6:10.

    3. astocheo = to deviate from. Occ. only in 1 Timothy 1:6; 6:21. 2 Timothy 2:18.
