STRONGS NT 3816: pa??
pa??, genitive pa?d??, ?, ?, from Homer down; in the N. T. only in the Gospels and Acts;
1. a child, boy or girl; the Sept. for ????? and ??????? (Genesis 24:28; Deuteronomy 22:15, etc.): ? pa??, Matthew 17:18; Luke 2:43; Luke 9:42; Acts 20:12; ? pa??, Luke 8:51, 54; plural infants, children, Matthew 2:16; Matthew 21:15; ? pa?? t????, the son of one, John 4:51.
2. (Like the Latinpuer, equivalent to) servant, slave (Aeschylus choëph. 652; Aristophanes nub. 18, 132; Xenophon, mem. 3, 13, 6; symp. 1, 11; 2, 23; Plato, Charm., p. 155 a.; Protag., p. 310{c}. and often; Diodorus 17, 76; others; so the Sept. times without number for ????? (cf. Winers Grammar, p. 30, no. 3); cf. the similar use of German Bursch (Frenchgarcon, English boy)): Matthew 8:6, 8, 13; Luke 7:7 cf. Luke 7:10; Luke 12:45; Luke 15:26. an attendant, servant, specifically, a king's attendant, minister: Matthew 14:2 (Diodorus 17:36; hardly so in the earlier Greek writings; Genesis 41:37; 1 Samuel 16:15-17; 1 Samuel 18:22, 26; Daniel 2:7; 1 Macc. 1:6, 8; 1 Esdr. 2:16 1 Esdr. 5:33, 35); hence, in imitation of the Hebrew ?????? ?????, pa?? t?? Te?? is used of a devout worshipper of God, one who fulfils God's will (Psalm 68:18 (Ps. 69:18); Psalm 112:1 (Ps. 113:1); Wis. 2:13, etc.) thus, the people of Israel, Luke 1:54 (Isaiah 41:8; Isaiah 42:19; Isaiah 44:1f, 21, etc.); David, Luke 1:69; Acts 4:25 (Psalm 17:1 (Ps. 18:1); Ps 35:1 (Ps. 36:1) (Ald., Complutensian), etc.); likewise any upright and godly man whose agency God employs in executing his purposes; thus in the N. T. Jesus the Messiah: Matthew 12:18 (from Isaiah 42:1); Acts 3:13, 26; Acts 4:27, 30 (cf. Harnack on the Epistle of Barnabas 6, 1 [ET] and Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 59, 2 [ET]); in the O. T. also Moses, Nehemiah 1:7f; the prophets, 1 Esdr. 8:79(81); Baruch 2:20, 24; and others. [Synonym: pa??, pa?d?????, pa?d???, pa?d?s??, t?????: The grammarian Aristophanes is quoted by Ammonius (s.v. ?????) as defining thus: pa?d???, t? t?ef?µe??? ?p? t??????· pa?d????? d?, t? ?d? pe??pat??? ?a? t?? ???e?? ??te??µe???· pa?d?s??? d'? ? ?? t? ???µ??? ??????· pa?? d' d?? t?? ????????? µa??µ?t?? d???µe??? ???a?· Philo (de mund. opif. §36) quotes the physician Hippocrates as follows; ?? ?????p?? ??se? ?pt? ??s?? ??a? ?.t.?.· pa?d??? µ?? ?st?? ????? ?pt? ?t??? ?d??t?? ??ß????· ta?? d? ???? ????? ????se??? e?? t? d?? ?pt?· µe??????? d? ???? ?e?e??? ?a???se??? ?? t? t??? ?pt?? etc., According to Schmidt, pa?d??? denotes a child up to its first school years; pa?? is a child of any age; (pa?d?s??? and pa?d?s??, in which reference to descent quite disappears, cover the years of late childhood and early youth. But usage is untrammelled; from a child is expressed either by ?? pa?d?? (most frequently). or ?? pa?d???, or ?? (?p?) pa?da????. pa?? and t????? denote a child alike as respects descent and age, reference to the latter being more prominent in the former word, to descent in t?????; but the period pa?? covers is not sharply defined; and, in classic usage as in modern, youthful designations cleave to the female sex longer than to the male. See Schmidt ch. 69; Höhne in Luthardt's Zeitschrift u. s. w. for 1882, p. 57 sqq.] On the elasticity of the term pa?? as respects age, see Bp. Lghtft. Apostolic Fathers, Pt. II. vol. i. p. 432 note.
