In 2 Peter 2:13 this word is used in the ";Biblical";sense of ";blemish"; (cf. Leviticus 21:21). For the meaning ";blame"; ";reproach,"; as in classical Greek (cf. also Sirach 11:31; Sirach 18:15) see Kaibel 948.7 f. (Rom.)—
οὕνεκ᾽ ἐ [γὼ πι ]νυτ [ᾶ ]τα καὶ ἀγλαὸν ἤθεσι κόσμον
δῶ [κ ]α καὶ ἐ [γ ]μώμου πάντοθεν εἰρυσάμην,
where ἐ [γ ]μώμου = ἐκ μώμου (see Index). See s.v. ἄμωμος. Boisacq (pp. 57, 637 n..1, 655) connects μῶμος with the Homeric ἀμύμων and with μιαίνω.
