Here are citaitons from a Greek lexicon
vanity = mataiotes:
strictly, nonsense, nothingness, emptiness (2P
2.18); as a characteristic state of someth. futility, frustration,
purposelessness (RO 8.20).
corruption = phthora:
destruction, ruin, dissolution; lit. as it affects nature
corruptibility, subjection to decay (RO 8.21); of the body at burial
dissolution, decomposition, decay (1C 15.42); of animals destined for food
slaughter, killing (2P 2.12a); fig. in a moral sense depravity, corruption
(2P 1.4); of the fut., as a final recompense destruction, death, ruin opp.
eternal life (GA 6.8; 2P 2.12b).
