Headword: Ὁσιότης
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.
Greek Original:
Ὁσιότης: ἡ πρὸς θεὸν καθοσίωσις. καὶ ἐκεῖνος ὅσιος ὁ ἑαυτὸν διὰ πίστεως καὶ ἔργων ἀγαθῶν καθοσιώσας καὶ τῷ θεῷ ἀφιερώσας. ὅθεν περὶ τοῦ τὸν θεὸν καταλιμπάνοντος καὶ ἀρνουμένου τὰς πρὸς θεὸν συνθήκας ἔλεγεν ὁ Μωσῆς: μὴ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου, ὅσιά μοι γένοιτο ἐν τῷ ἀποστῆναι ἀπὸ κυρίου. καθάπερ οὖν ὁ τοῦ θεοῦ ἀποστάτης καὶ κακοῦργος ἀνόσιος λέγεται, οὕτως ὁ τῷ θεῷ διὰ πίστεως καὶ ἀγαθουργίας οἰκειωθεὶς ὅσιος καὶ δίκαιος εἰκότως ὀνομάζεται.
