STRONGS NT 1484: ἔθνος
ἔθνος, -ους, τό;
1. a multitude (whether of men or of beasts) associated or living together; a company, troop, swarm: ἔθνος ἑταίρων, ἔθνος Ἀχαιων, ἔθνος λαῶν, Homer, Iliad; ἔθνος μελισσάων, 2, 87; μυιάων ἔθνεα, ibid. 469.
2. a multitude of individuals of the same nature or genus (τὸ ἔθνος τὸ θῆλυ τὸ ἄρρεν, Xenophon, oec. 7, 26): πᾶν ἔθνος ἀνθρώπων, the human race, Acts 17:26 [but this seems to belong under the next entry].
3. race, nation: Matthew 21:43; Acts 10:35, etc.; ἔθνος ἐπὶ ἔθνος, Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8: οἱ ἄρχοντες, οἱ βασιλεῖς τῶν ἐθνῶν, Matthew 20:25; Luke 22:25; used [in the singular] of the Jewish people, Luke 7:5; Luke 23:2; John 11:48, 50-53; John 18:35; Acts 10:22; Acts 24:2 (Acts 24:3), Acts 24:10; Acts 26:4; 28:19.
4. (τά) ἔθνη, like הַגויִם in the O. T., foreign nations not worshipping the true God, pagans, Gentiles, [cf. Trench, § 98]: Matthew 4:15 (Γαλιλαία τῶν ἐθνῶν), Matthew 6:32; [3 John 1:7 R G; cf. Revelation 15:3 G L T Tr WH marginal reading after John 10:7], and very often; in plain contradistinction to the Jews: Romans 3:29; Romans 9:24; [1 Corinthians 1:23 G L T Tr WH]: Galatians 2:8, etc.; λαὸς (τοῦ θεοῦ, Jews) καὶ τὰ ἔθνη, Luke 2:32; Acts 26:17, 23; Romans 15:10.
5. Paul uses τὰ ἔθνη even of Gentile Christians: Romans 11:13; Romans 15:27; Romans 16:4; Galatians 2:12 (opposite Galatians 2:13 to οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι, i. e. Jewish Christians), Galatians 2:14; Ephesians 3:1, cf. Ephesians 4:17 [Winers Grammar, § 59, 4 a.; Buttmann, 130 (114)].
