STRONGS NT 264: ἁμαρτάνω
ἁμαρτάνω; future ἁμαρτήσω (Matthew 18:21; Romans 6:15; in the latter passage L T Tr WH give ἁμαρτήσωμεν for R G ἁμαρτήσομεν), in classical Greek ἁμαρτήσομαι; 1 aorist (later) ἡμάρτησα, Matthew 18:15; Romans 5:14, 16 (cf. Winers Grammar, 82 (79); Buttmann, 54 (47)); 2 aorist ἥμαρτον; perfect ἡμάρτηκα; (according to a conjecture of Buttmann, Lexil. i., p. 137, from the α privative and μείρω, μείρομαι, μέρος, properly, to be without a share in, namely, the mark); properly, to miss the mark, (Homer, Iliad 8, 311, etc.; with the genitive of the thing missed, Homer, Iliad 10, 372; 4, 491; τοῦ σκοποῦ, Plato, Hipp. min., p. 375 a.; τῆς ὁδοῦ, Aristophanes Plutarch, 961, others); then to err, be mistaken; lastly to miss or wander from the path of uprightness and honor, to do or go wrong. ["Even the Sept., although the Hebrew חָטָא also means primarily to miss, endeavor to reserve ἁμαρτ. exclusively for the idea of sin: and where the Hebrew signifies to miss one's aim in the literal sense, they avail themselves of expressive compounds, in particular ἐξαμαρτάνειν, Judges 20:16." Zezschwitz, Profangraec, u. Biblical Sprachgeist, p. 63f] In the N. T. to wander from the law of God, violate God's law, sin;
a. absolutely: Matthew 27:4; John 5:14; John 8:11; John 9:2; 1 John 1:10; 1 John 2:1; 1 John 3:6, 8; 1 John 5:18; Romans 2:12; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12, 14, 16; Romans 6:15; 1 Corinthians 7:28, 36; 1 Corinthians 15:34; Ephesians 4:26; 1 Timothy 5:20; Titus 3:11; Hebrews 3:17; Hebrews 10:26 (ἑκουσίως); [2 Peter 2:4]; of the violation of civil laws, which Christians regard as also the transgression of divine law, 1 Peter 2:20.
b. ἁμαρτάνειν ἁμαρτίαν to commit (literally, sin) a sin, 1 John 5:16 (μεγάλην ἁμαρτίαν, Exodus 32:30f. Hebrew חֲטָאָה חָטָא; αἰσχρὰν ἁμ. Sophocles Phil. 1249; μεγάλα ἁμαρτήματα ἁμαρτάνειν, Plato, Phaedo, p. 113 e.); cf. ἀγαπάω, under the end ἁμαρτάνειν εἴς τινα [Buttmann, 173 (150); Winer's Grammar, 233 (219)]: Matthew 18:15 (L T WH omit; Tr marginal reading brackets εἰς σέ), Matthew 18:21; Luke 15:18, 21; Luke 17:3 Rec., 4; 1 Corinthians 8:12; τὶ εἰς Καίσαρα, Acts 25:8; εἰς τὸ ἴδιον σῶμα, 1 Corinthians 6:18 (εἰς αὑτούς τε καὶ εἰς ἄλλους, Plato, rep. 3, p. 396 a.; εἰς τὸ θεῖον, Plato, Phaedr., p. 242 c.; εἰς θεούς, Xenophon, Hell. 1, 7, 19, etc.; [cf. ἁμ. κυρίῳ θεῷ, Baruch 1:13 Baruch 2:5]); Hebraistically, ἐνώπιον (לִפְּנֵי) τινος [Buttmann, § 146, 1] in the presence of, before anyone, the one wronged by the sinful act being, as it were, present and looking on: Luke 15:18, 21 (1 Samuel 7:6; Tobit 3:3, etc.; [cf. ἔναντι κυρἰου, Baruch 1:17]). [For references see ἁμαρτία. Compare: προαμαρτάνω.]
