STRONGS NT 4893: συνείδησις
συνείδησις, συνειδήσεως, (συνεῖδον), Latinconscientia (literally, 'joint-knowledge'; see σύν, II. 4), i. e.
a. the consciousness of anything: with a genitive of the object, τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν, a soul conscious of sins, Hebrews 10:2 (τοῦ μύσους, Diodorus 4, 65; συνείδησις εὐγενής, consciousness of nobility; a soul mindful of its noble origin, Herodian, 7, 1, 8 (3 edition, Bekker)).
b. "the soul as distinguishing between what is morally good and bad, prompting to do the former and shun the latter, commending the one, condemning the other; conscience": with a genitive of the subjunctive, συνείδησις τίνος, Romans 2:15 (where the idea of συνείδησις is further explained by καί μεταξύ... καί ἀπολογουμένων (cf. Winers Grammar, 580 (539); see ἀπολογέομαι, 2, and συμμαρτυρέω)); Romans 9:1; 1 Corinthians 8:7 (cf.

With epithets: ἀσθενής, not strong enough to distinguish clearly between things lawful for a Christian and things unlawful, 1 Corinthians 8:7, cf. 1 Corinthians 8:10; συνείδησις ἀγαθή, a conscience reconciled to God, 1 Peter 3:21; free from guilt, consciousness of rectitude, of right conduct, Acts 23:1; 1 Timothy 1:5 (Herodian, 6, 3, 9 (4 edition, Bekker)); ἔχειν συνείδησιν ἀγαθήν, 1 Timothy 1:19; 1 Peter 3:16, (ἐν ἀγαθή συνείδησις ὑπάρχειν, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 41, 1 [ET]); ἔχειν συνείδησιν καλήν, Hebrews 13:18; συνείδησις καθαρά, 1 Timothy 3:9; 2 Timothy 1:3 (Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 45, 7 [ET], cf. ἁγνή συνείδησις, ibid. 1, 3; καθαρός τῇ συνειδήσει, Ignatius ad Trall. 7, 2 [ET]); ἀπρόσκοπος, Acts 24:16; πονηρά, a mind conscious of wrong-doing, Hebrews 10:22 ((ἐν συνειδήσει ποιηρα, 'Teaching' etc. 4, 14 [ET]); ἀπρεπής, Lucian, amor. 49). συνείδησις καθαρίζεται ἀπό κτλ., Hebrews 9:14; μολύνεται, 1 Corinthians 8:7; μιαίνεται, Titus 1:15 (μηδέν ἑκουσίως ψεύδεσθαι μηδέ μιαίνειν τήν αὑτοῦ συνείδησιν, Dionysius Halicarnassus, jud.

In the Sept. once for מַדָּע, Ecclesiastes 10:20; (equivalent to conscience, Wis. 17:11; cf. Delitzsch, Brief an d. Röm., p. 11)). Cf. especially Jahnel, Diss. de conscientiae notione, qualis fuerit apud veteres et apud Christianos usque ad aevi medii exitum. Berol. 1862 (also the same, Ueber den Begr. Gewissen in d. Griech. Philos. (Berlin, 1872)); Kähler, Das Gewissen. I. die Entwickelung seiner Namen u. seines Begriffes. i., Alterth. u. N. T.
