      n : the quality of being holy [syn: sanctity] [ant: unholiness]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    in the highest sense belongs to God (Isa. 6:3; Rev. 15:4), and
    to Christians as consecrated to God's service, and in so far as
    they are conformed in all things to the will of God (Rom. 6:19,
    22; Eph. 1:4; Titus 1:8; 1 Pet. 1:15). Personal holiness is a
    work of gradual development. It is carried on under many
    hindrances, hence the frequent admonitions to watchfulness,
    prayer, and perseverance (1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 7:1; Eph. 4:23,
    24). (See SANCTIFICATION.)
