uncircumcised; metaph. (τ .) καρδίαις (cf. Jeremiah 9:26, al.): Acts 7:51 (ἄσημος , found in Papyri, appears to have been the word used by Greek-speaking Egyptians: v. Deiss., BS, 153; cf. also Cremer, 885; MM, s.v.)†

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

On the possibility that this harsh word may have been coined by the Greek Jews of Alexandria to express the contempt with which they regarded the uncircumcised, see Deissmann BS, p. 153. Of course it must be remembered that περιτέμνω itself is familiar in papyri, in connexion with the circumcision of priests in Egyptian temples : see Otto Priester i. p. 214.
