Additional Links
1: ὑπόκρισις

(Strong's #5272 — Noun Feminine — hupokrisis — hoop-ok'-ree-sis )

primarily denotes "a reply, an answer" (akin to hupokrinomai, "to answer"); then, "play-acting," as the actors spoke in dialogue; hence, "pretence, hypocrisy;" it is translated "hypocrisy" in Matthew 23:28; Mark 12:15; Luke 12:1; 1 Timothy 4:2; the plural in 1 Peter 2:1 . For Galatians 2:13 and anupokritos, "without hypocrisy," in James 3:17 , see DISSIMULATION.
