Sincere, Sincerely, Sincerity:

akin to A, No. 3 denotes "sincerity, purity;" it is described metaphorically in 1Cr 5:8 as "unleavened (bread);" in 2Cr 1:12, "sincerity (of God)," RV, AV, "(godly) sincerity," it describes a quality possessed by God, as that which is to characterize the conduct of believers; in 2Cr 2:17 it is used of the rightful ministry of the Scriptures.

(2) In Eph 6:24, AV, aphtharsia, "incorruption," is translated "sincerity" (RV, "uncorruptness," AV marg., "incorruption"); some inferior mss. have it in Tts 2:7, AV; the RV follows those in which it is absent.


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.
