STRONGS NT 3741: ὅσιος

ὅσιος, ὅσια, ὅσιον, and once (1 Timothy 2:8) of two terminations (as in Plato, legg. 8, p. 831 d.; Dionysius Halicarnassus, Antiquities, 5, 71 at the end; cf. Winers Grammar, § 11, 1; Buttmann, 26 (23); the feminine occurs in the N. T. only in the passage cited); from Aeschylus and Herodotus down; the Sept. chiefly for חָסִיד (cf. Grimm, Exgt. Hdbch. on Sap., p. 81 (and references under the word ἅγιος, at the end)); "undefiled by sin, free from wickedness, religiously observing every moral obligation, pure, holy, pious" (Plato, Gorgias, p. 507 b. περί μέν ἀνθρώπους τά προσηκοντα πράττων δικαἰ ἄν πραττοι, περί δέ θεούς ὅσια. The distinction between δίκαιος and ὅσιος is given in the same way by Polybius 23, 10, 8; Schol. ad Euripides, Hec. 788; Chariton 1, 10; (for other examples see Trench, § lxxxviii.; Wetstein on Ephesians 4:24; but on its applicability to N. T. usage see Trench, as above; indeed Plato elsewhere (Euthyphro, p. 12 e.) makes δίκαιος the generic and ὅσιος the specific term)); of men: Titus 1:8; Hebrews 7:26; οἱ ὅσιοι τοῦ Θεοῦ, the pious toward God, God's pious worshippers (Wis. 4:15 and often in the Psalms); so in a peculiar and pre-eminent sense of the Messiah (A. V. thy Holy One): Acts 2:27; Acts 13:35, after Psalm 15:10 (); χεῖρες (Aeschylus cho. 378; Sophocles O. C. 470), 1 Timothy 2:8. of God, holy: Revelation 15:4; Revelation 16:5 (also in secular authors occasionally of the gods; the Orphica, Arg. 27; hymn. 77, 2; of God in Deuteronomy 32:4 for יָשָׁר; Psalm 144:17 () for חָסִיד, cf. Wis. 5:19); τά ὅσια Δαυίδ, the holy things (of God) promised to David, i. e. the Messianic blessings, Acts 13:34 from Isaiah 55:3.
