2126 eulabḗs (an adjective, derived from 2095 /eú, "well, good," and 2983 /lambánō, "aggressively lay hold of") – properly, devout (piety), as it reflects what someone personally reveres (holds sacred, venerates).

2126 /eulabḗs ("devout") literally means "taking hold of what is good." It focuses on the outward response someone gives to what they feel is truly worthwhile (worthy of respect).

2126 (eulabēs) is sometimes translated "God-fearing" because it shows a "godly respect" for the things of God. This awe-inspired fear reveres what is sacred, i.e. viewed as deserving personal respect.
