un - lûr´ned : Acts 4:13 for ἀγράμματος , agrámmatos , literally "illiterate." But nothing more than "lacking technical rabbinical instruction" seems to be meant (compare John 7:15 ). 1 Corinthians 14:16 , 1 Corinthians 14:23 , 1 Corinthians 14:24 for ἰδιώτης , idiṓtēs , "private person," the Revised Version margin "he that is without gifts," correctly expresses the sense ("unbeliever" is hardly in point); also the King James Version, 2 Timothy 2:23; 2 Peter 3:16 (the Revised Version (British and American) "ignorant").
