Gentile

Gentile, Term referring to a non-Jew.

Gentile (from Latin gentilis "of or belonging to the same people or nation", from gēns "clan; tribe; people, family") is a term that usually means "someone who is not a Jew". Other groups that claim Israelite heritage sometimes use the term to describe outsiders.The term is used by English translators for the Hebrew גוי‎ (goy) and נכרי‎ (nokhri) in the Hebrew Bible and the Greek word ἔθνη (éthnē) in the New Testament. The word gentile is derived from Latin and not itself an original Hebrew or Greek word found in the Bible. The original words goy and ethnos refer to "peoples" or "nations" and are applied to both Israelites and non-Israelites in the Bible. Etymology "Gentile" derives from Latin gentilis, which itself derives from the Latin gens, meaning clan or tribe.
