Headword: *(osio/ths
Adler number: omicron,689
Translated headword: holiness
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] devotion to God. That man is holy who has sanctified himself through faith and good works and has dedicated himself to God. Hence Moses said concerning the man who abandons God and denied the covenants with God: "Do not say in your heart, 'let holy things come to me in departing from the Lord.'"[1] Just as he who is apostate from God and an evildoer is called unholy, so he who becomes familiar with God through faith and doing good is rightly called holy and just.
