Goy (Hebrew: גוי, plural goyim גוים) is a transliterated Hebrew word which means one who is not a Jew.
In modern Hebrew and Yiddish, the word goy may be used to refer to members of the Gentile nations.
Claims that the word goy literally means "cattle" in Hebrew and it has consequently been appropriated to denigrate Gentiles because of these alleged etymological beginnings are false: no linguistic basis supports either of these assertions.

 [No title]
If a Jew directed a goy to do a D'Orysa Melacha on Shabbos, the prohibition of benefit is so severe, that if, for instance the goy turned on a light, the Jew must leave the room so as not to derive pleasure from the Melacha.
Similarly, if a goy cooked food for a Jew on Shabbos, that food is muktzeh and no Jew may partake of it until until enough time to have completed that Melacha if it had been begun after Shabbos has elapsed [bekedai she ya aseh].

 S.C.J. FAQ: Section 19.5. Miscellaneous: Is "shvartze" offensive? Is "goyim" offensive?
"Goy" [plural: goyim, adjective: goyishe] is the standard Hebrew term for non-Jew.
Literally it is the Hebrew for "nation." Spoken aloud with a disgusted inflection, it's pejorative.
In the phrase "shabbos goy"--a gentile who does things for Jews on Shabbos--it is neutral, yet when refusing to do something for someone by saying "I'm not your shabbos goy", it carries a derogatory tinge.

 Semites, Goyim and Gentiles
Goy means "nation", goyim, its plural, means "nations"; the two words are assigned the same Strong's number, #01471, however.
It is seen the terms "goy" and "goyim" are used to describe the seed (offspring) of Noah, Abram/Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; indeed, IAUE Himself names them so.
And while one may be a "goy" and not a semite (from Ham or Japeth), one cannot be a "non-goy" while still claiming to be "semitic".

But in order to have a utensil to be a Goy’s to say that it has the Tumah of the Goy and needs Tvela, that you need it to be completely the Goy’s, so that he never owned it (but just being a collateral by him) doesn’t make the utensil Tumay.
If a Goy stole an utensil and the original ownership is forgotten (before this, the Goy doesn’t own it, even with Yiyush) then it depends who the Goy is. If he’s a regular Goy, when he returns it, it doesn’t need Tvela.
But if the Goy was an officer or a Governor, that he can get away with taking from other people with impunity and he can be seen in public with it, it becomes his completely.

 American Yiddish words 101
As most of us know, goyim or goy is a mildy derisive term used by Jews for non-Jews.
In the case of "goy," the ultimate Hebrew derivation is from "goi," meaning tribe.
For instance, a sugary greeting card might be described as "schmaltzy." Schmaltz is directly from Hebrew, but owes its deeper roots to a German word "schmalz" meaning rendered fat, which in turn derives from a German verb "schmelzen" to melt.
