2. pious, godly, either as exhibition of 'duteous love' toward God (CheOP 378), or (in view of rarity of such passages as Hosea 6:4, 6; Jeremiah 2:2, and their possible ambiguity) because kindness, as prominent in the godly, comes to imply other attributes, and to be a designation of the godly character, piety:
a. as adjective — גּוֺי לא חסיד a nation, not pious,=ungodly Psalm 43:1.
b. elsewhere as substantive: singular, a pious man, the godly Psalm 4:4; Psalm 12:2; Psalm 32:6; Psalm 86:2, || יָשָׁר Micah 7:2; (thy) pious one(s) Psalm 16:10 (Kt plural), 1 Samuel 2:9 (Qr plural) Proverbs 2:8, אִישׁ חֲסִידֶ֑ךָ men of thy pious one Deuteronomy 33:8 (Moses, see Di; others, the man, thy godly one, i.e. Levi); plural the pious, godly, those of the people who were faithful, devoted to God's service, only in Psalter and chiefly, if not entirely, in late Psalms Psalm 149:1; Psalm 149:5; his pious ones Psalm 30:5; Psalm 31:24; Psalm 37:28; Psalm 85:9; Psalm 97:10; Psalm 116:15; Psalm 148:14; Psalm 149:9; thy pious ones Psalm 52:11; Psalm 79:2; Psalm 132:9 2 Chronicles 6:41; Psalm 145:10; my pious ones Psalm 50:5, her (Zion's) pious Psalm 132:16. — (In Maccabean age, συναγωγὴ Ἀσιδαίων denoted, technically, the party of the pious, who opposed the Hellenization of the Judaea, see 1Macc 2:42; 7:13; 2 Macc 14:6 and CheOP 48, 56; so perhaps Psalm 116:15; Psalm 149:1; Psalm 149:5; Psalm 149:9.)
