* ἀν -επί -λημπτος

(Rec. -λμπτος ; Bl., § 6, 8), -ον

(< - ἐπιλαμβάνω ),

without reproach: 1 Timothy 3:2; 1 Timothy 5:7; 1 Timothy 6:14.†

SYN.: ἀμεμπτος G273, ἀνέγκλητος G410. It is stronger than these, for it implies not only that the man is of good report, but that he is deservedly so (cf. MM, VGT, s.v.).
