definition of the word sin

by the Wiktionnary

Old English synn. The same root appears in several other Germanic languages, e.g., Old Norse synd, German Sünde. The word may derive, ultimately, from Indo-European root *es- (to be). Latin also has an old present participle of esse in the word sons, sont- (guilty). The root meaning would appear to be, "it is true;" that is, "the charge has been proven." The Greek word ἁμαρτία (hamartia), to miss the mark, to miss the target) is often translated as “sin” in the New Testament.
