Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εἰλικρίνεια or—ία (WH Notes.2 p. 160 f., and for breathing ib. p. 151), not found in class. Greek, may be illustrated from P Oxy X. 1252 versoii. 38 (A.D. 288–95) προσφεύγω ] ἐπὶ τὴν σὴν ἰλεικρινείαν, ";I have recourse to your probity"; (Edd.). The etymology is doubtful (cf. Moulton Gr. ii. § 105), but Boisacq Dict. Etym. s.v. εἰλικρινής inclines to the old derivation (rejected by LS) from εἵλη (cf. Skr. s (ú)var) ";light,"; ";sun,"; and κρίνω, as if = ";examined by the light of the sun"; and found pure, sincere : cf. T. H. Green’s definition of εἰλ. as ";perfect openness towards God"; (Two Sermons, p. 41).
