Gentiles, a word which means literally, 'the nations.' It was applied by the Hebrews to all individuals or communities not under the law—that is, all the nations of the world excepting the Jews. But in later times some small states, and many individuals, embraced the law: and they were distinguished from the Gentiles, as well as from the Jews, by the name of Proselytes. In some places our authorized version has the word 'Gentiles' where the original should properly be rendered 'Greeks.'
