1 Strong's Number: g3153 Greek: mataiotes


"emptiness as to results," akin to mataios (see EMPTY, VAIN), is used

(a) of the creation, Rom 8:20, as failing of the results designed, owing to sin;

(b) of the mind which governs the manner of life of the Gentiles, Eph 4:17;

(c) of the "great swelling words" of false teachers, 2Pe 2:18.

Note: For mataios, in the neut. plur. in Act 14:15, "vanities," see VAIN, A, No. 2 (a).
