Bible verses about Piety
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Piety ("godly" in NKJV) also appears as "devout" in Acts 10:2, 7. This word means "to give to God reverence and worship that emanates from a holy life." Thus, it includes the sense of being dedicated, consecrated, earnest, faithful, and loyal with an implication of intensity and intrinsic sanctity. In other words, a pious, devout, godly person is deeply committed, earnest, and serious about his religious duties. One who is godly will not lackadaisically drift through life and into the Kingdom of God. Jesus says that those who attain it expend a great deal of effort (Matthew 11:12).

Titus 2:12   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Listed fifth is godliness or piety. In Acts 10:2, 7, the word is translated as "devout." This Greek word means "to render to God the reverence and worship emanating from a holy life." To do this, the holy life must come first, and then giving this kind of devotion to God is made possible.

Titus 2:11-14
