STRONGS NT 2263: ἤρεμος

ἤρεμος, ἤρεμον, quiet, tranquil: ἤρεμον καί ἡσύχιον βίον, 1 Timothy 2:2. (Lucian, trag. 207; Eustathius, Hesychius; comparative ἠρεμεστερος, from an unused ἠρεμης, Xenophon, Cyril 7, 5, 63; more common in the earlier Greek writings is the adverb ἠρέμα. (Cf. Winers Grammar, § 11 at the end; Buttmann, 28 (24).))


Perhaps by transposition from eremos (through the idea of stillness); tranquil -- quiet.
