From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : a person who professes beliefs and opinions that he does not
          hold [syn: dissembler, phony, phoney, pretender]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    one who puts on a mask and feigns himself to be what he is not;
    a dissembler in religion. Our Lord severely rebuked the scribes
    and Pharisees for their hypocrisy (Matt. 6:2, 5, 16). "The
    hypocrite's hope shall perish" (Job 8:13). The Hebrew word here
    rendered "hypocrite" rather means the "godless" or "profane," as
    it is rendered in Jer. 23:11, i.e., polluted with crimes.
