Easton's Bible Dictionary
Gentiles

(Heb., usually in plural, goyim), meaning in general all nations except the Jews. In course of time, as the Jews began more and more to pride themselves on their peculiar privileges, it acquired unpleasant associations, and was used as a term of contempt.

In the New Testament the Greek word Hellenes, meaning literally Greek (as in Acts 16:1, 3; 18:17; Romans 1:14), generally denotes any non-Jewish nation.

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Gentiles

(nations). All the people who were not Jews were so called by them, being aliens from the worship, rites and privileges of Isr'l. The word was used contemptuously by them. In the New Testament it is used as equivalent to Greek. This use of the word seems to have arisen from the almost universal adaption of the Greek language.


Webster's 1828 Dictionary
Gentilesse

GENTILESSE, noun Complaisance. [Not in use.]
