Romans 5:5a

Post by Bill Ross 2 » June 3rd, 2011, 8:34 pm

Does KATAISXUNEI imply "disappoint" or "shame"?

Rom 5:5a ἡ δὲ ἐλπὶς οὐ καταισχύνει,

Thank you.

Thank you.
Do you have access to BDAG? That's my favorite dictionary, but here are a few free online choices.
Also note that laparola.net shows every place that this word is used in the Greek New Testament.

I'd start by looking there. Or what have you looked at so far?

Thank you for the links.

The helps seem to only offer "ashamed" but the translations all supply "disappoint":

That's why I asked.
