[in LXX chiefly for טוֹב ;]
in general, good, in physical and in moral sense, used of persons, things, acts, conditions, etc., applied to that which is regarded as "perfect in its kind, so as to produce pleasure and satisfaction, . . . that which, in itself good, is also at once for the good and the advantage of him who comes in contact with it" (Cremer, 3): γῆ, Luk.8:8; δένδρον, Mat.7:18; καρδία, Luk.8:15; δόσις, Jas.1:17; μέρις, Luk.10:42; ἔργον (freq. in Pl.), Php.1:6; ἐλπίς, 2Th.2:16; θησαυρός, Mat.12:35; μνεία, 1Th.3:6 (cf. 2Ma.7:20); as subst., τὸ ἀ, that which is morally good, beneficial, acceptable to God, Rom.12:2; ἐργάζεσθαι τὸ ἀ,

SYN.: καλός, δίκαιος. κ. properly refers to goodliness as manifested in form: ἀ. to inner excellence (cf. the cl. καλὸς κἀγαθός and ἐν καρδία κ. καὶ ἀ., Luk.8:15). In Rom.5:7, where it is contrasted with δ., ἀ. implies a kindliness and attractiveness not necessarily possessed by the δίκαιος, who merely measures up to a high standard of rectitude (cf. ἀγαθωσύνη). (AS)
Thayer:
1) of good constitution or nature
2) useful, salutary
3) good, pleasant, agreeable, joyful, happy
4) excellent, distinguished
5) upright, honourable

Synonyms for Beautiful, Graceful. See Definition for asteios { [G791]}
See Definition for oraios { [G5611]}
See Definition for kalos { [G2570]}

asteios is properly one living in a city, urban. It soon acquires
the meaning urbane, polite, elegant. Then it obtains to a limited
extent the meaning beautiful, although never in the highest degree.

oraios, from ora, hour, period, means properly timely.
From that comes the idea of being beautiful, since nearly everything
is beautiful in its hour of fullest perfection.

kalos is a much higher word. It means beautiful, physically or
morally. It is, however, distinctly the beauty which comes from
harmony, the beauty which arises from a symmetrical adjustment in
right proportion, in other words, from the harmonious completeness of
the object concerned.
