English

Etymology

Old English synn. The same root appears in several other Germanic languages, e.g., Old Norse synd, German Sünde. The word may derive, ultimately, from Indo-European root *es- (to be). Latin also has an old present participle of esse in the word sons, sont- (guilty). The root meaning would appear to be, "it is true;" that is, "the charge has been proven." The Greek word ἁμαρτία (hamartia), to miss the mark, to miss the target) is often translated as “sin” in the New Testament.
