'Piety' in the Bible
for kings, and all who are in authority, that a quiet and peaceable life we may lead in all piety and gravity,
but -- which becometh women professing godly piety -- through good works.
and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- God was manifested in flesh, declared righteous in spirit, seen by messengers, preached among nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory!
and the profane and old women's fables reject thou, and exercise thyself unto piety,
for the bodily exercise is unto little profit, and the piety is to all things profitable, a promise having of the life that now is, and of that which is coming;
But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
if any one be teaching otherwise, and do not consent to sound words -- those of our Lord Jesus Christ -- and to the teaching according to piety,
wranglings of men wholly corrupted in mind, and destitute of the truth, supposing the piety to be gain; depart from such;
but it is great gain -- the piety with contentment;
and thou, O man of God, these things flee, and pursue righteousness, piety, faith, love, endurance, meekness;
