Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κόσμιος, ";orderly,"; ";virtuous,"; which in the NT is confined to 1 Timothy 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:2, is common as an epithet of honour in the inscrr., e.g., Magn 165.6 διὰ τὴν τοῦ ἤθους κόσμιον (for form see Blass Gr., p. 33) ἀναστροφήν, ib. 179.4 (ii/A.D.) διὰ. . τὴν ἰς τὴν πόλιν αὐτοῦ κόσμιον ἀναστροφήν, and OGIS 485.3 (Roman) ἄνδρα. . . ἤθει καὶ ἀγωγῇ κόσμιον. Sharp (p. 52) quotes Epict. Ench. 40 κόσμιαι. . καὶ αἰδήμονες of women, as in 1 Timothy 2:9 : cf. also the late PSI I. 97.1 (vi/A.D.) τὴν ἐμὴν κοσμ (ίαν) [γυναῖκα. For the subst. κοσμιότης, see Syll 371.11 (time of Nero), where a physician is praised ἐπὶ. . τῇ κοσμιότητι τῶν ἠθῶν, and an honorific inscr. BCH xi. (1887), p. 348 διά τε τὴν ἰδίαν αὺτοῦ κοσμιότητα καὶ διὰ τὰς τῶν προγόνων εὐεργεσία [ς. κοσμίως.

This adverb, which is read in 1 Timothy 2:9 אc D2* G (WH marg.), occurs, like the adj. κόσμιος (q.v.), as a, descriptive epithet in the inscrr., e.g. Cagnat IV. 255.9 ἄνδρα. . . ἐζηκότα τε καλῶς καὶ κοσμίως, πάσης ἀρετῆς ἕνεκεν, ib. 785.14 (early iii/A.D.) (= C. and B. ii. p. 466) ἄνδρα. . . στρατηγήσαντα γ ̄ ἁγνῶς, ἀγωνοθετήσαντα φιλοτείμως, εἰρηναρχήσαντα κοσμίως, and Magn 162.6 ζήσαντα σωφρόνως καὶ κοσμίως (cf. 1 Timothy 3:2). See also Vett. Val. p. 355.30 διὰ τῆς ἰδίας ἐγκρατείας ἀκηρύκτως καὶ κοσμίως τὸ τέλος τοῦ βίου ὑποίσει.
