STRONGS NT 112: ἄθεος

ἄθεος, (Θεός) (from Pindar down], without God, knowing and worshipping no God, in which sense Aelian v. h. 2, 31 declares ὅτι μηδείς τῶν βαρβάρων ἄθεος; in classic authors generally slighting the gods, impious, repudiating the gods recognized by the state, in which sense certain Greek philosophers, the Jews (Josephus, contra Apion 2, 14, 4), and subsequently Christians were called ἄθεοι by the heathen (Justin, Apology 1, 13, etc.). In Ephesians 2:12 of one who neither knows nor worships the true God; so of the heathen (cf. 1 Thessalonians 4:5; Galatians 4:8); Clement, οἱ τόν ὄντως ὄντα ... Alex. protr, 2:23, p. 19 Pott. ἀθεους Θεόν ἠγνοήκλασι, Philo, leg. ad Gai. § 25 αἰγυπτιακὴ ἀθεότης, Hosea 4:15 Symm. οἶκος ἀθεΐας, a house in which idols are worshipped, Ignatius ad Trall. 10 [ET] ἄθεοι τοῦτ᾿ἔστιν ἄπιστοι (of the Docetae); (others understand Ephesians, the passage cited passively deserted of God, Vulg.sine Deo; on the various meanings of the word see Meyer (or Ellicott)).
