aplous is literally spread out without folds, and hence means
single, simple, without complexity of character and motive. In the
N.T. this idea of simplicity is always favorable? in classical Greek
the word is also occasionally used in an unfavorable sense, denoting
foolish simplicity.

akeraios also means simple, literally free from any
foreign admixture, unadulterated, free fram disturbing elements.

akakos in Heb 7:26 means one in whom exists absence of all
evil, and so by implication the presence of all good. It passes also
through the merely negative meaning of absence of evil, found in the
Septuagint, to the unfavorable meaning of simple, easily deceived,
credulous, which is found in Ro 16:18.

adolos, occurring only in 1Pe 2:2, means sincere,
unmixed, without guile.
