Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σεμνότης in the NT is confined to the Pastoral Epp., where it is translated castitas by the Vg in 1 Timothy 2:2; 1 Timothy 3:4, but better by gravitas, ";seriousness,"; ";dignity,"; in Titus 2:7. Lock ad 1 Timothy 2:2 in ICC cites Tert. Praescr. 43 ubi metus in Deum, ibi grauitas honesta, as indicating whence the ";dignity"; is derived. Cf. Aristeas 171 διὰ τὴν σεμνότητα καὶ φυσικὴν διάνοιαν τοῦ νόμου. Exx. of the word from the inscrr. are Syll 371 (= .3807).11 (i/A.D.), where a doctor ἀνάλογον πεποίηται τὴν ἐπιδημίαν τῇ περὶ ἑαυτὸν ἐν πᾶσι σεμνότητι, and OGIS 567.19 (ii/A.D.) ἐπί τε συνηγορίαις καὶ σεμνότητι.
