Bondservant

BONDSERVANT

bond'-sur-vant:

Appears only once in the King James Version (Leviticus 25:39) where it translates `ebhedh, "a slave": "Thou shalt not cause him to render the service of a bondservant" or slave. the Revised Version (British and American) frequently uses bondservant (doulos) instead of the word "servant" of the King James Version (John 8:34,35; 1 Corinthians 7:21; Galatians 4:7).
