σωφρον-ισμός, ὁ,

teaching of morality or moderation, Str. 1.2.3, J. BJ 2.1.3, Plu. 2.653d, etc.; self-control, 2 Timothy 1:7.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

σωφρονισμός, σωφρονισμοῦ, ((σωφρονίζω);

1. an admonishing or calling to soundness of mind, to moderation and self-control: Josephus, Antiquities 17, 9, 2; b. j. 2, 1,3; Appendix, Pun. 8, 65; Aesop fab. 38; Plutarch; (Philo, legg. alleg. 3, 69).

2. self-control, moderation (σωφρονισμοι τινες μετανοιαι τῶν νέων, Plutarch, mor., p. 712 c. i. e. quaest. conviv. 8, 3): πνεῦμα σωφρονισμοῦ, 2 Timothy 1:7, where see Huther; (but Huther, at least in his later editions, takes the word transitively, equivalent to correction (R. V. discipline); see also Holtzmann at the passage).
