eg-zam'-p'-l (tupos, "a pattern," hupodeigma, "copy" "representation" hupogrammos, "a writing-copy," example"): A typical, representative, or illustrative case; a pattern or model for imitation (hupodeigma, Jn 13:15; Heb 8:5 the King James Version; Jas 5:10; hupogrammos, 1 Pet 2:21; tupos, 1 Tim 4:12 the King James Version) or warning (deigma, "a sample," "exhibition," Jude 1:7; compare 2 Pet 2:6; hupodeigma, Heb 4:11; tupos, 1 Cor 10:6,11 ).
"Ensample" (tupos, 2 Macc 6:28,31; Phil 3:17; 1 Thess 1:7; 2 Thess 3:9; 1 Tim 4:12; 1 Pet 5:3) and "example" have the same meaning, but the former is always suggestive of goodness.
