Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The idea of ";majesty,"; ";stateliness,"; which Hort (James, p. 17) finds in the OT use of this word and in James 1:11, its only occurrence in the NT, comes out well in Syll 932.17 (iii/A.D. init.) ο [ἱ κ ] [ρι ]οι ἡμῶν μέγιστοι καὶ θειότατοι αὐτοκράτορες διὰ παντός τε τοῦ ἑαυτῶν αἰῶνος βουληθέντες ἐν τῇ αὐτῇ εὐπρεπείᾳ διαμεῖναι τὴν αὑτῶν ἐπαρχείαν, προσέταξαν κτλ. Ἀπρέπια is read by the editor in P Iand 11.8 (iii/A.D.). In MGr εὐπρεπής has given place to πρεπός, ";proper,"; ";becoming"; : similarly ἄπρεπος (Thumb Handbook § 115).
