1. θεοσέβεια, 'worship or reverence of God,' 'reverential fear of God.' 1 Timothy 2:10 . The same word is used in the LXX for 'the fear of God' in Genesis 20:11 , and for 'the fear of the Lord' in Job 28:28 .

2. εὐσέβεια, from 'to worship well,' hence piety towards God. The word 'piety' seems to suit all the passages where the Greek word occurs. Acts 3:12; 1 Timothy 2:2; 1 Timothy 3:16; 1 Timothy 4:7,8; 1 Timothy 6:3,5,6,11; 2 Timothy 3:5; Titus 1:1; 2 Peter 1:3,6,7; 2 Peter 3:11 .
