- worship: [OE] Worship began life as a compound noun meaning virtually ‘worthiness’. It was formed from the adjective worth and the noun suffix -ship ‘state, condition’, and at first was used for ‘distinction, credit, dignity’. This soon passed into ‘respect, reverence’, but it was not used in specifically religious contexts until the 13th century. The verb dates from the 12th century.
