J. P. Louw and E. A. Nida, Greek-English Lexicon, United Bible Societies,
1988:
88.280: m: a male partner in homosexual intercourse 
-------------- next part --------------

? ?homosexual.? ...
?don?t you know that ? no adulterers or homosexuals ? will receive the
kingdom of God? 1Cor 6:9-10. It is possible that arsenokoites in certain
contexts refers to the active male partner in homosexual intercourse in
contrast with malakos, the passive male partner (88.281).
Liddell and Scott, Greek-English Lexicon, defines it as 'lying with men'.
