Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";an old woman."; It is sometimes thought that the πρεσβύτιδες of Titus 2:3, the only place where the word occurs in the NT (cf. 4 Maccabees 16:14), are the members of a priestly or organized class in view of the ἱεροπρεπεῖς which follows, see the citations s.v. ἱεροπρεπής; but the word need not imply more than that the πρεσβύτιδες ";are to carry into daily life the demeanour of priestesses in a temple"; (Lock ICC ad l.), and this meaning is strongly confirmed by the context (cf. v. 2).
