STRONGS NT 5012: ταπεινοφροσύνη
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. T., nor in secular authors — (but in Josephus, b. j. 4, 9, 2 in the sense of pusillanimity; also Epictetus diss. 3, 24, 56 in a bad sense. See Trench, N. T. Synonyms, § xlii.; Lightfoot on Philippians, the passage cited; Zezschwitz, Profangräcität, as above w., pp. 20, 62; Winer's Grammar, 26).)
