αἰδώς aidṓs, ahee-doce'; perhaps from G1 (as a negative particle) and G1492 (through the idea of downcast eyes); bashfulness, i.e. (towards men), modesty or (towards God) awe:—reverence, shamefacedness.
STRONGS NT 127: αἰδώς
αἰδώς (-όος) -οῦς, ; from Homer down; a sense of shame, modesty: 1 Timothy 2:9; reverence, Hebrews 12:28 (λατρεύειν, θεῷ μετὰ αἰδοῦς καὶ εὐλαβείας, but L T Tr WH εὐλαβείας καὶ δέους).
[Synonyms: αἰδώς, αἰσχύνη: Ammonius distinguishes the words as follows, αἰδώς καὶ αἰσχύνη διαφέρει, ὅτι μὲν αἰδώς ἐστιν ἐντροπὴ πρὸς ἕκαστον, ὡς σεβομένως τις ἔχει. αἰσχύνη δ' ἐφ’ οἷς ἕκαστος ἁμαρτὼν αισχύνεται, ὡς μὴ δέον τι πράξας. καὶ αἰδεῖται μέν τις τὸν πατέρα. αἰσχύνεται δὲ ὅς μεθύσκεται, etc., etc.; accordingly, αἰδ. is prominently objective in its reference, having regard to others; while αἰσχ. is subjective, making reference to oneself and one's actions. Cf. Schmidt, chapter 140. It is often said that 'αἰδ. precedes and prevents the shameful act, αἰσχ. reflects upon its consequences in the shame it brings with it' (Cope, Aristotle, rhet. 5, 6, 1). αἰδ. is the nobler word, αἰσχ. the stronger; while "αἰδ. would always restrain a good man from an unworthy act, αἰσχ. would sometimes restrain a bad one." Trench, §§ 19, 20.]
