Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀναμάρτητος, ἀναμάρτητον (from ἄν, the alpha privative, and the form ἁμαρτέω), sinless, both one who has not sinned, and one who cannot sin. In the former sense in John 8:7; Deuteronomy 29:19; 2 Macc. 8:4 2Macc. 12:42; (Test. xii. Patr. test. Benj. § 3). On the use of this word from Herodotus down, cf. Ullmann, Sündlosigkeit Jesu, p. 91f ((abridged in) English translation, p. 99; Cremer, under the word).
