STRONGS NT 121: ἀθῶος

ἀθῶος (R G Tr), more correctly ἀθῷος (L WH and T (but not in his Sept.. There is want of agreement among both the ancient gramm, and modern scholars; cf. Stephanus' Thesaurus i. col. 875 c.; Lob. Path. Element. i. 440f (cf. ii. 377); see Iota)), , (θωή (i. e., θωϊή, cf. Etym. Magn., p. 26, 24) punishment) (from Plato down), unpunished, innocent: αἷμα ἀθῷον, Matthew 27:4 (Tr marginal reading WH text δίκαιον, (Deuteronomy 27:25; 1 Samuel 19:5, etc.; 1 Macc. 1:37; 2 Macc. 1:8); ἀπό τινος, after the Hebrew מִן נָקִי ((Numbers 32:22; cf. Genesis 24:41; 2 Samuel 3:28; Winers Grammar, 197 (185); Buttmann, 158 (138))), 'innocent (and therefore far) from,' innocent of Matthew 27:24 (the guilt of the murder of this innocent man cannot be laid upon me); ἀπό τῆς ἁμαρτίας, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 59, 2 [ET] (cf. Numbers 5:31). The Greeks say ἀθῷός τίνος (both in the sense of free from and unpunished for).


From a (as a negative particle) and probably a derivative of tithemi (meaning a penalty); not guilty -- innocent.
