From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : terseness and economy in writing and speaking achieved by
          expressing a great deal in just a few words [syn: conciseness,
           pithiness, succinctness]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Gr. katatome; i.e., "mutilation"), a term used by Paul
    contemptuously of those who were zealots for circumcision (Phil.
    3:2). Instead of the warning, "Beware of the circumcision"
    (peritome) i.e., of the party who pressed on Gentile converts
    the necessity of still observing that ordinance, he says,
    "Beware of the concision;" as much as to say, "This circumcision
    which they vaunt of is in Christ only as the gashings and
    mutilations of idolatrous heathen."
