 Gentiles
    (Heb., usually in plural, goyim), meaning in general all nations
    except the Jews. In course of time, as the Jews began more and
    more to pride themselves on their peculiar privileges, it
    acquired unpleasant associations, and was used as a term of
    contempt.
      In the New Testament the Greek word Hellenes, meaning
    literally Greek (as in Acts 16:1, 3; 18:17; Rom. 1:14),
    generally denotes any non-Jewish nation.
