STRONGS NT 1467: ἐγκρατεύομαι
ἐγκρατεύομαι [see ἐν, III. 3]; deponant middle; to be self-controlled, continent (ἐγκρατής); to exhibit self-government, conduct oneself temperately: [used absolutely in Genesis 43:30]; with the dative of respect, τῇ γλώσσῃ, Sir. 19:6 variant; πάντα, in everything, every way, 1 Corinthians 9:25 (in a figure drawn from athletes, who in preparing themselves for the games abstained from unwholesome food, wine, and sexual indulgence); οὐκ ἐγκρατεύεσθαι, said of those who cannot curb sexual desire, 1 Corinthians 7:9. Though this word does not occur in the earlier Greek writings that have come down to us [except in Aristotle, eth. Eudem. 2, 7, p. 1223b, 13th edition, Bekker], yet its use is approved of by Phrynichus; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 442; [Winer's Grammar, 25].
