fāth´les : The translation of ἄπιστος , ápistos , "without faith," having the sense of "unbelieving," "disbelieving." Jesus upbraids the people, "O faithless and perverse generation!" (Matthew 17:17 ; Mark 9:19 ; Luke 9:41 ); He says to Thomas, "Be not faithless, but believing" (John 20:27 ); the Revised Version (British and American) adds, "If we are faithless," instead of "believe not" (2 Timothy 2:13 ); compare 1 Corinthians 7:12-15 ; 1 Corinthians 10:27 ; 1 Corinthians 14:22 , 1 Corinthians 14:24 , etc.; Titus 1:15 . In Luke 12:46 apistos has the sense of "unfaithful," so the Revised Version (British and American); perhaps also Revelation 21:8 , "unbelieving.»
