[Meaning] those who not only defile themselves but also share their defilement with others.
Greek Original:
*loimoi/: oi( mh\ mo/non sfa=s au(tou\s lumaino/menoi, a)lla\ kai\ e(te/rois th=s lu/mhs metadido/ntes.
Theodoret (PG 80, 869a) on Psalm 1:1 LXX ("Blessed is he who ... did not sit in the seat of the loimoi/").
For the use of the headword loimo/s in application to people, see generally LSJ s.v. It is possible that there has been some confusion between the stems of loimo/s and lu/mh, which were homophonous in Byzantine Greek.
cf. lambda 757, lambda 758 (and under sigma 897).
