Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g819 Greek: atimia

Shame (Noun, and Verb):


(a) "shame, disgrace," Rom 1:26, "vile (passions)," RV, lit., "(passions) of shame;" 1Cr 11:14;

(b) "dishonor," e.g. 2Ti 2:20, where the idea of disgrace of "shame" does not attach to the use of the word; the meaning is that while in a great house some vessels are designed for purposes of honor, others have no particular honor (time) attached to their use (the prefix a simply negatives the idea of honor).

C-1 Verb Strong's Number: g818 Greek: atimazo

Shame (Noun, and Verb):

"to dishonor, put to shame" (akin to A, No. 1): see DISHONOR, C, No. 1.

C-2 Verb Strong's Number: g1788 Greek: entrepo

Shame (Noun, and Verb):

lit., "to turn in upon, to put to shame" (akin to A, No. 3), is translated "to shame (you)" in 1Cr 4:14.

See ASHAMED, A, No. 3.

C-4 Verb Strong's Number: g3856 Greek: paradeigmatizo

Shame (Noun, and Verb):

signifies "to set forth as an example" (para, "beside," deiknumi, "to show"), and is used in Hbr 6:6 of those Jews, who, though attracted to, and closely associated with, the Christian faith, without having experienced more than a tasting of the heavenly gift and partaking of the Holy Ghost (not actually receiving Him), were tempted to apostatize to Judaism, and, thereby crucifying the Son of God a second time, would "put Him to an open shame." So were criminals exposed. In the Sept., Num 25:4; Jer 13:22; Eze 28:17.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
