Castaway

Castaway [EBD]

Gr. adokimos, (1 Cor. 9:27), one regarded as unworthy (R.V., "rejected"); elsewhere rendered "reprobate" (2 Tim. 3:8, etc.); "rejected" (Heb. 6:8, etc.).

CASTAWAY [ISBE]

CASTAWAY - kast'-a-wa (adokimos, from dokimazo, "I test," "I approve after testing," hence, approved after being tested): This word is rendered "castaway" only in the King James Version: "I myself should be a castaway" ("rejected" the Revised Version (British and American), the American Standard Revised Version, 1 Cor 9:27). But the same word occurs a number of times usually translated "reprobate" (Rom 1:28; 2 Cor 13:5-7; 2 Tim 3:8; Tit 1:16); "rejected" (Hebrew 6:8).
