Int. Standard Bible Encyclopedia
on'-est, on'-es-ti: The word "honest" in the New Testament in the King James Version generally represents the adjective kalos, "good," "excellent," "honorable," and, with the exception of Luke 8:15, "honest and good heart," is changed in the Revised Version (British and American) into the more correct "honorable" (Romans 12:17 2 Corinthians 8:21; 2 Corinthians 13:7 Philippians 4:8); in 1 Peter 2:12, into "seemly.' In the American Standard Revised Version "honestly" in Hebrews 13:18 is rendered "honorably," and in 1 Thessalonians 4:12 (here euschemonos) is rendered "becomingly." The noun "honesty" occurs but once in the King James Version as the translation of semnotes (1 Timothy 2:2), and in the Revised Version (British and American) is more appropriately rendered "gravity."
