Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this word, which is found in the NT only in 1 Timothy 3:15, Hort (Christian Ecclesia, p. 174) strongly advocates the translation ";stay"; or ";bulwark,"; in accordance with the almost universal Latin rendering firmamentum. Cf. the use of ἕδρασμα in Reitzenstein Poimandres, p. 343.4 ὁ βαθμὸς οὗτος, ὦ τέκνον, δικαιοσύνης ἐστὶν ἕδρασμα.
