(Strong's #1114 — Noun Masculine — goes — go'-ace )

primarily denotes "a wailer" (goao, "to wail"); hence, from the howl in which spells were chanted, "a wizard, sorcerer, enchanter," and hence, "a juggler, cheat, impostor," rendered "impostors" in 2 Timothy 3:13 , RV (AV, "seducers"); possibly the false teachers referred to practiced magical arts; cp. 2 Timothy 3:8 .
