1: ἁμαρτωλός

(Strong's #268 — Adjective — hamartolos — ham-ar-to-los' )

an adjective, akin to hamartano, "to sin," is used as an adjective, "sinful" in Mark 8:38; Luke 5:8; 19:7 (lit., "a sinful man"); 24:7; John 9:16,24 (lit., "a man sinful"); Romans 7:13 , for which see SIN , A, No. 1 (a). Elsewhere it is used as a noun: see SINNER. The noun is frequently found in a common phrase in sepulchral epitaphs in the S.W. of Asia Minor, with the threat against any desecrator of the tomb, "let him be as a sinner before the subterranean gods" (Moulton and Milligan).

Notes: (1) In Romans 8:3 , "sinful flesh" is, lit., "flesh of sin" (RV marg.): see SIN , No. 1 (c). (2) For the RV of Romans 7:5 , "sinful passions," see PASSION , No. 1.
