Question on the word prautaes
used in these verses 1 Co. 4:21 2 Co. 10:1 Gal. 5:23 Gal. 6:1
Eph. 4:2 Col. 3:12
2 Tim. 2:25 Tit. 3:2 Jas. 1:21 Jas. 3:13 1 Pet. 3:16

In her devotions, my wife ran across an article on meekness which claims
that this word comes from the description of a powerful stallion
responding to the gentle signals of his master. I can't find any support
for this claim. Is anyone familiar with they etymology of this word? Can
you help me here? Even better, can you turn me on to some sources which
would give me a deeper insight into words like this than I'm able to
acquire through my existing sources (Bible Works/Logos)?

Thank you so much!
