(G5834 OLB) Synonyms: diakonos (διάκονος G1249), douloo (δουλόω G1402), therapon (θεράπων G2324), yperetes (ὑπηρέτης G5257).
διάκονος G1249 represents the servant in his activity for the work; not in his relation, either servile, as that of that δουλόω G1402, or more voluntary, as in the case of θεράπων G2324, to a person. δουλόω G1402 opp. to διάκονος G1249 denotes a bondman, one who sustains a permanent servile relation to another. θεράπων G2324 is the voluntary performer of services, whether as a freeman or a slave; it is a nobler tenderer word than δουλόω G1402. ὑπηρέτης G5257 suggests subordination.
