HELPS word-Studies

379 anapológētos (an adjective, derived from 1 /A "not" and 626 /apologéomai, "to argue a case") – properly, without rationale, lacking any justified defense (argument) – hence inexcusable because without any genuine foundation.

379 /anapológētos ("without rationale or convincing argument") refers to what is utterly inadmissible, i.e. impossible to accept (without solid logic). 379 (anapológētos) then refers to something that completely lacks merit.

[379 (anapológētos) comes from "alpha privative" (a/"not") and apologeomai ("to defend, excuse"). It "occurs in documents from the second century before Christ. Frequently it describes the hopelessness of trying to defend a case in court, while lacking an adequate defense. The term is not used in the Septuagint" (CBL).]
