agathosune: goodnessOriginal Word: ἀγαθωσύνη, ης, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Phonetic Spelling: (ag-ath-o-soo'-nay)
Short Definition: goodness
Definition: intrinsic goodness, especially as a personal quality, with stress on the kindly (rather than the righteous) side of goodness.
Cognate: 19 agathōsýnē (from 18 /agathós, "inherently good," see there) – properly, intrinsic goodness (especially as a unique quality and condition, note the -synē suffix); as relating to believers, the goodness that comes from God (Souter) and showing itself in spiritual, moral excellence (virtue).
19 (agathōsynē) occurs four times in the NT, and is apparently strictly a biblical term, i.e. it does not seem to appear at all in secular Greek/the papyri (see N. Turner, Christian Words, 89). See 18 (agathos).
