2 Timothy 1:7

A spirit of fearfulness (pneuma deilia). Here pneuma is the carisma of verse Romans 6 , the human spirit as endowed by the Holy Spirit ( Romans 8:15 ). Deilia is an old word (deilo, deidw) and always in a bad sense of cowardice, only here in N.T. Of power (dunamew). One of Paul's characteristic words ( Romans 1:16 ). Of love (agaph). One of the gifts of the Spirit ( Galatians 5:22 ). "Which drives out fear" (Lock) as in 1 John 4:18 . Of discipline (swpronismou). Late Koin word (from swpronizw, to control), self-control, here only in N.T. See 1 Timothy 2:9 for swprosunh.
