STRONGS NT 1506: εἰλικρινής
εἰλικρινής, -ές, ([on the breathing see WH's Appendix, p. 144; Liddell and Scott, under the word, at the end]; commonly supposed to be from εἴλη or ἕλη, sunlight, and κρίνω, properly, found pure when unfolded and examined by the sun's light; hence, some write εἰλ. [see references above]; according to the conjecture of others from εἶλος, εἰλειν, properly, sifted and cleansed by rapid movement or rolling to and fro), pure, unsullied, sincere; of the soul, an εἰλικρινής man: Philippians 1:10; διάνοια, 2 Peter 3:1. (Wis. 7:25, where cf. Grimm, Exgt. Hdb.; [see, on the word, also Trench, § 85]; [Hippocrates], Xenophon, Plato, [Aristotle, Plutarch], Polybius, Philo, [others].)
[Synonyms: εἰλικρινής, καθαρός: According to Trench as above the former word expresses freedom from the falsehoods, the latter from the defilements, of the flesh and of the world.]
