Thayer's Expanded Definition

δειλία, δειλίας, (δειλός), timidity, fearfullness, cowardice: 2 Timothy 1:7. (Sophocles (Herodotus), Euripides, (Aristophanes), Thucydides, and subsequent writings.) [SYNONYMS: δειλία, φόβος, εὐλάβεια: "of these three words the first is used always in a bad sense; the second is a middle term, capable of a good interpretation, capable of an evil, and lying pretty evenly between the two; the third is quite predominantly used in a good sense, though it too has not altogether escaped being employed in an evil." Trench, § x, which see; cf. δέος.]
