Holman Bible Dictionary
Those who worship a god or gods other than the living God to whom the Bible witnesses. NIV, REB, and RSV sometimes use pagans as the translation of the Greek ethnoi
( 1 Corinthians 5:1
; 1 Corinthians 10:20
), which is generally translated Gentiles (so KJV, NAS). In English, Gentile relates to ethnic background while pagan refers to religious affiliation. See Gentiles
; Gods, Pagan
