STRONGS NT 2399: ἰδιώτης
ἰδιώτης, -ου, , (ἴδιος), very common in Greek writings from Herodotus down; properly, a private person, opposed to a magistrate, ruler, king; but the noun has many other meanings also, each one of which is understood from its antithesis, as e. g. a common soldier, as opposed to a military officer; a writer of prose, as opposed to a poet. In the N. T. an unlearned, illiterate, man, opposed to the learned, the educated: Acts 4:13; as often in classical Greek, unskilled in any art: in eloquence (Isocrates, p. 43 a.), with the dative of respect, τῷ λόγῳ, 2 Corinthians 11:6 [A. V. rude in speech]; a Christian who is not a prophet, 1 Corinthians 14:24; destitute of the 'gift of tongues,' 1 Corinthians 14:16, 23. [Cf. Trench § lxxix.]
