Is the word pomp ever used without being followed by circumstance? It seems as though the word is only ever used to denote pomp and circumstance. Are there other uses?
In the Anglican and RC English rituals of Baptism, pomps (generic plural only) occurs frequently:
... that I should renounce the devil and all his works, the pomps and vanity of this wicked world, and all the sinful lusts of the flesh, ...
I renounce Satan, and his works, and his pomps, and his worships, and his angels, and his inventions, and all things that are under him.
