International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

sham'-fast-nes: The original the King James Version translation of aidos, in Sirach 41:16 and 1Ti 2:9. Perhaps half a century later the spelling "shamefacedness" supplanted the better form, and continues in the ordinary editions of the King James Version. The Revised Version (British and American), however, rightly restores "shamefastness."
