STRONGS NT 4467: ῤᾳδιούργημα

ῤᾳδιούργημα, ῥαδιουργηματος, τό (from ῤᾳδιουργέω, and this from ῤᾳδιουργός, compounded of ῤᾴδιος and ἔργῳ. A ῤᾳδιουργός is one who does a thing with little effort and adroitly; then, in a bad sense, a man who is facile and forward in the perpetration of crime, a knave, a rogue), a piece of knavery, rascality, villany: πονηρόν, Acts 18:14. (Dionysius Halicarnassus, Plutarch, Lucian; ecclesiastical writings.)


From a comparative of rhaidios (easy, i.e. Reckless) and ergon; easy-going behavior, i.e. (by extension) a crime -- lewdness.
