SACRILEGE

sak'-ri-lej: For "commit sacrilege" in Romans 2:22 (the King James Version and the English Revised Version margin), the Revised Version (British and American) has "rob temples," which more exactly expresses the meaning of the verb (hierosuleo; compare Acts 19:37, "robbers of temples" (which see)). The noun occurs in 2 Maccabees 4:39 (the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American)) for the corresponding form hierosulema.
