Piety

Additional Links

Piety. This word occurs, but once in the Authorized Version: "Let them learn first to show piety at home," better "toward their own household" or family. 1 Timothy 5:4. The choice of this word here, instead of the more usual equivalents, of "godliness," "reverence," and the like, was probably determined by the special sense of pietas, as "erga parentes", that is, toward parents.
