In terminology, sin (TR:37), from the Latin sont- or sons, i.e. “guilty”, refers to a conceptualized act of wrongdoing (as contrasted with rightdoing); an action that is or is felt to be highly reprehensible. [1]

Historically, the concept of individual sin derives from the Egyptian theory of the negative confessions, i.e. 42 acts of wrongfulness forbidden by the Egyptian people, the number 42 signifying the number of nodes or “capitals” of upper and lower Egypt during the 1st dynasty formation of the Egyptian state.
