Honor indicates the preservation of personal virtues such as righteousness, integrity and decency.
The word honor derives from the Latin honorare or honoris that specifically indicates public glorification through the exercise of public office. In this sense, it is associated with pride in the social relevance it means. Hence the term “a lot of honor”: “I am an immigrant and a lot of honor” or “is an honor” as, for example, “It is an honor to have the President in my house.”
In the sense associated with the verb to honor, the word derives from the Greek timao that refers to the high esteem and consideration towards something or someone. In this way, people’s honor refers to personal honor that encompasses respect, decorum, humanity and integrity.
The biblical meaning of the word honor derives from the Hebrew kabôd that indicates glory. Honoring God and parents, for example, involves praising and esteeming them through obedience, respect, admiration and retribution.
