from a, negative, n, euphonic, and an adjectival form corresponding to A, signifies "unfeigned;" it is said of love, 2 Corinthians 6:6; 1 Peter 1:22; Romans 12:9, AV, "without dissimulation," RV, "without hypocrisy;" of faith, 1 Timothy 1:5; 2 Timothy 1:5, "unfeigned;" of the wisdom that is from above, James 3:17, "without hypocrisy."
