καταισχύνω; passive, imperfect κατησχυνομην; 1 aorist κατῃσχύνθην; future καταισχυνθήσομαι; the Sept. chiefly for הֵבִישׁ and הֹבִישׁ; as in Greek writings from Homer down;

1. to dishonor, disgrace: τήν κεφαλήν, 1 Corinthians 11:4f (σποδῷ τήν κεφαλήν, Josephus, Antiquities 20, 4, 2).

2. to put to shame, make ashamed: τινα 1 Corinthians 1:27; 1 Corinthians 11:22; passive to be ashamed, blush with shame: Luke 13:17; 2 Corinthians 7:14; 2 Corinthians 9:4: 1 Peter 3:16; by a Hebrew usage one is said to be put to shame who suffers a repulse, or whom some hope has deceived; hence, ἐλπίς οὐ καταισχύνει, does not disappoint: Romans 5:5 (cf.
