Servitor

Servitor

occurs only in 2 Kings 4:43 , Authorized Version (RSV, "servant"). The Hebrew word there rendered "servitor" is elsewhere rendered "minister," "servant" ( Exodus 24:13 ; 33:11 ). Probably Gehazi, the personal attendant on Elisha, is here meant.

Servitor

Attendant; he who performs as a servant.

And there came a man from Baalshalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat. And his SERVITOR said, What, should I set this before an hundred men? He said again, Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the LORD, They shall eat, and shall leave thereof. ( 2 Kings 1:1 Leviticus 4:42-43 )
