      n : a man who has been castrated and is incapable of

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Eunuch
    literally bed-keeper or chamberlain, and not necessarily in all
    cases one who was mutilated, although the practice of employing
    such mutilated persons in Oriental courts was common (2 Kings
    9:32; Esther 2:3). The law of Moses excluded them from the
    congregation (Deut. 23:1). They were common also among the
    Greeks and Romans. It is said that even to-day there are some in
    Rome who are employed in singing soprano in the Sistine Chapel.
    Three classes of eunuchs are mentioned in Matt. 19:12.
