Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀσύνετος, ἀσύνετον, unintelligent, without understanding: Matthew 15:16; Mark 7:18; stupid: Romans 1:21; Romans 10:19. In imitation of the Hebrew נָבָל, ungodly (Wis. 1:5; Sir. 15:7f (cf. ἀσυνέτειν, Psalm 118:158 ())), because a wicked man has no mind for the things which make for salvation: Romans 1:31 (others adhere here to the Greek usage; cf. Fritzsche at the passage). (In Greek writings from Herodotus down.) (Cf. σοφός, at the end).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy III. 471.89 (ii/A.D.), ἦν δὲ οὐκ ἀσύνετον , ";and he was not stupid."; Kaibel 225.3 (near Ephesus) ἀξυνέτων δὲ βουλαῖς ἀνθρώπων τοῦδε ἔτυχον θανάτου : it seems clear that ";foolish"; here does not primarily denote lack of brains but moral obliquity.
