2 pious, godly, either as exhibition of 'duteous love' toward God (CheOP 378), or (in view of rarity of such passages as Hosea 6:4,6; Jeremiah 2:2, and their possible ambiguity) because kindness, as prominent in the godly, comes to imply other attributes, and to be a designation of the godly character, piety:
