Hypocrite

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
One who puts on a mask and feigns himself to be what he is not; a dissembler in religion. Our Lord severely rebuked the scribes and Pharisees for their hypocrisy (Matthew 6:2,5,16 ). "The hypocrite's hope shall perish" (Job 8:13 ). The Hebrew word here rendered "hypocrite" rather means the "godless" or "profane," as it is rendered in Jeremiah 23:11 , i.e., polluted with crimes.
