Thayer's Expanded Definition
 εἰλικρινής, ἐιλικρινες ((on the breathing see WH's Appendix, p. 144; Liddell and Scott, under the word, at the end); commonly supposed to be from εἴλη or ἕλη, sunlight, and κρίνω, properly, found pure when unfolded and examined by the sun's light; hence, some write εἰλικρινής. (see references above); according to the conjecture of others from ἐιλος, ἐίλειν, properly, sifted and cleansed by rapid movement or rolling to and fro), pure, unsullied, sincere; of the soul, an εἰλικρινής man: Philippians 1:10; διάνοια, 2 Peter 3:1. ( Wisdom of Solomon 7:25, where cf. Grimm, Exgt. Hdb.; (see, on the word, also Trench, § lxxxv.); ( Hippocrates), Xenophon, Plato ( Aristotle, Plutarch), Polybius, Philo (others).) [ SYNONYMS: εἰλικρινής, καθαρός: According to Trench as above the former word expresses freedom from the falsehoods, the latter from the defilements, of the flesh and of the world.]
