Morrish Bible Dictionary
μῦθος, lit. 'a word, a speech.' The English word is not used in the N.T. in the sense in which it is now often employed, signifying a supposed incident to teach some moral truth; but has the sense rather of myths , false stories (as the Greek word was used by later writers), which in one passage are called "profane and old wives' fables." 1 Timothy 1:4; 1 Timothy 4:7; 2 Timothy 4:4; Titus 1:14; 2 Peter 1:16 .
