1: πλάνη
(Strong's #4106 — Noun Feminine — plane — plan'-ay )

akin to planao (see ERR , No. 1), "a wandering, a forsaking of the right path, see James 5:20 , whether in doctrine, 2 Peter 3:17 ; 1 John 4:6 , or in morals, Romans 1:27 ; 2 Peter 2:18 ; Jude 1:11 , though, in Scripture, doctrine and morals are never divided by any sharp line. See also Matthew 27:64 , where it is equivalent to 'fraud.'" * [* From Notes on Thessalonians by Hogg and Vine, p. 53.]

"Errors" in doctrine are not infrequently the effect of relaxed morality, and vice versa.

In Ephesians 4:14 the RV has "wiles of error," for AV, "they lie in wait to decive;" in 1 Thessalonians 2:3 , RV, "Error," for AV, "deceit;" in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 , RV, "a working of error," for AV, "strong delusion." See DECEIT. Cp. planetes, "a wandering," Jude 1:13 , and the adjective planos, "leading astray, deceiving, a deceiver."

2: ἀγνόημα
(Strong's #51 — Noun Neuter — agnoema — ag-no'-ay-mah )

"a sin of ignorance" (cp. agnoia, "ignorance," and agnoeo, "to be ignorant"), is used in the plural in Hebrews 9:7 .
