epitimaw means simply to rebuke, in any sense. It may be
justly or unjustly, and, if justly, the rebuke may be heeded or it may
not.

elegcw, on the other hand, means to rebuke with sufficient cause,
and also effectually, so as to bring the one rebuked to a confession
or at least a conviction of sin. In other words, it means to
convince.

A similar distinction exists between the nouns aitia and
elegcov. aitia is an accusation, whether false or true.
elegcov is a charge which is shown to be true, and often is so
confessed by the accused. It has both a judicial and a moral meaning.
