Thayer's Expanded Definition

στῦλος (R G WH (Trin 1 Timothy 3:15; Revelation 10:1)), more correctly στῦλος (so L T (Tr in Galatians 2:9; Revelation 3:12)); see Passow (or Liddell and Scott), under the word, at the end (cf.

(dropping the figure) I will assign him a firm and abiding place in the everlasting kingdom of God, Revelation 3:12; used of persons to whose eminence and strength the stability and authority of any institution or organization are due, Galatians 2:9 (where cf. Lightfoot); Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 5, 2 [ET] and the note in Gebhardt and Harnack (στῦλοι οἴκων εἰσί παῖδες ἄρσενες, Euripides, Iph. T. 57; examples from (Jewish writings are given by Schoettgen (on Galatians, the passage cited) and from) ecclesiastical writings by Suicer, Thesaurus, ii, p. 1045f; columen reipublicae, Cicero, pro Sest. 8, 19, and often elsewhere in Latin authors); a prop or support: τῆς ἀληθείας, 1 Timothy 3:15.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

one of Paul’s numerous compounds in συν - : cf. Deissmann Paul.2, p. 240 f. Properly the word denotes ";a fellow-prisoner of war,"; and in its Pauline occurrences can hardly be confined to the thought of spiritual captivity : cf. Abbott ICC ad Colossians 4:10.
