ταπεινοφροσύνη, ταπεινοφροσύνης, (ταπεινόφρων; opposed to μεγαλοφροσύνη, ὑψηλοφροσύνη (cf. Winers Grammar, 99 (94))), "the having a humble opinion of oneself; a deep sense of one's (moral) littleness; modesty, humility, lowliness of mind"; (Vulg.humilitas, Luth. Demuth): Acts 20:19; Ephesians 4:2; Philippians 2:3; Colossians 3:12; 1 Peter 5:5; used of an affected and ostentatious humility in Colossians 2:18, 23. (The word occurs neither in the O.
