ASHAMED (TO BE), SHAME

aischuno (153), from aischos, "shame," always used in the passive voice, signifies (a) "to have a feeling of fear or shame which prevents a person from doing a thing," e. g., <Luke 16:3>; (b) "the feeling of shame arising from something that has been done," e. g., <2 Cor. 10:8; Phil. 1:20; 1 John 2:28>, of the possibility of being "ashamed" before the Lord Jesus at His judgment seat in His Parousia with His saints; in <1 Pet. 4:16>, of being ashamed of suffering as a Christian.#
