1: εὐσχημόνως
(Strong's #2156 — Adverb — euschemonos — yoo-skhay-mon'-oce )

denotes "gracefully, becomingly, in a seemly manner" (eu, "well," schema, "a form, figure"); "honestly," in Romans 13:13 (marg., "decently"), in contrast to the shamefulness of gentile social life; in 1 Thessalonians 4:12 , the contrast is to idleness and its concomitant evils and the resulting bad testimony to unbelievers; in 1 Corinthians 14:40 , "decently," where the contrast is to disorder in oral testimony in the churches. See HONESTLY.

Note: Cp. euschemosune, "comeliness," 1 Corinthians 12:23 , and euschemon, "comely, honorable." See COMELY.
