3921 pareisdýnō (from 3844 /pará, "from close beside" and eisdyō, "enter") – properly, enter alongside, i.e. secretly or under pretense. 3921 /pareisdýnō ("enter by stealth") refers to people who appear to be true Christians, but in reality oppose the faith. 3921 (pareisdýnō) is only used in Jude 4 of those "posing to give help."
[3921 (pareisdýnō) means "to get in by the side, to slip in a side-door" (M. Vincent). This term can be spelled pareisdynō (from dynō) or pareisdyō (see J. Thayer).]
