People's Dictionary of the Bible
Accursed, Cursed. The Greek word anathema, and the Hebrew word answering to it, signify things accursed, set apart or devoted to destruction. But the phrase is variously rendered: 1. Joshua 6:17, devoted to destruction. 2. 1 Corinthians 12:3, a deceiver. 3. Galatians 1:8-9, separated from the church.
