Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἁμαρτωλός hamartōlós, ham-ar-to-los'; from G264; sinful, i.e. a sinner:—sinful, sinner.
ἁμαρτωλός, -όν, (from the form ἁμάρτω, as φείδωλός from φείδομαι), devoted to sin, a (masculine or feminine) sinner.
In the N. T. distinctions are so drawn that one is called ἁμαρτωλός who is,
a. not free from sin. In this sense all men are sinners; as, Matthew 9:13; Mark 2:17; Luke 5:8, 32; Luke 13:2; Luke 18:13; Romans 3:7; Romans 5:(8), 19; 1 Timothy 1:15; Hebrews 7:26.
b. pre-eminently sinful, especially wicked;
α. universally: 1 Timothy 1:9; Jude 1:15; Mark 8:38; Luke 6:32-34; Luke 7:37, 39; Luke 15:7, 10; John 9:16, 24f. John 9:31; Galatians 2:17; Hebrews 12:3; James 4:8; James 5:20; 1 Peter 4:18; ἁμαρτία itself is called ἁμαρτωλός, Romans 7:13.
β. specifically, of men stained with certain definite vices or crimes, e. g. the tax-gatherers: Luke 15:2; Luke 18:13; Luke 19:7; hence, the combination τελῶναι καὶ ἁμαρτωλοί, Matthew 9:10; Matthew 11:19; Mark 2:15; Luke 5:30; Luke 7:34; Luke 15:1. heathen, called by the Jews sinners κατ’ ἐξοχήν (1 Macc. 1:34; 1 Macc. 2:48, 62; Tobit 13:6): Matthew 26:45 [?]; Mark 14:41; Luke 24:7; Galatians 2:15. (The word is found often in the Sept., as the equivalent of חֹטֵא and רָשָׁע, and in the O. T. Apocrypha; very seldom in Greek writings, as Aristotle, eth. Nic. 2, 9, p. 1109a, 33; Plutarch, de audiend. poët. 7, p. 25 c.)
