shām´fast - nes : The original the King James Version translation of αἰδώς , aidṓs , in Sirach 41:16 and 1 Timothy 2:9 . Perhaps half a century later the spelling "shamefacedness" supplanted the better form, and continues in the ordinary editions of the King James Version. The Revised Version (British and American), however, rightly restores "shamefastness."
