Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀχρεῖος achreîos, akh-ri'-os; from G1 (as a negative particle) and a derivative of G5534 (compare G5532); useless, i.e. (euphemistically) unmeritorious:—unprofitable.
STRONGS NT 888: ἀχρεῖος
ἀχρεῖος, -ον, (χρεῖος useful), useless, good for nothing: Matthew 25:30 (δοῦλος, cf. Plato, Alc. 1:17, p. 122 b. τῶν οἰκετῶν τὸν ἀχρειότατον); by an hyperbole of pious modesty in Luke 17:10 'the servant' calls himself ἀχρεῖον, because, although he has done all, yet he has done nothing except what he ought to have done; accordingly he possesses no merit, and could only claim to be called 'profitable,' should he do more than what he is bound to do; cf. Bengel, at the passage. (Often in Greek writings from Homer down; Xenophon, mem. 1, 2, 54 ἀχρεῖον καὶ ἀνωφελές. Sept. 2 Samuel 6:22 equivalent to שָׁפָל low, base.) [Synonyms: cf. Tittmann ii., p. 11f; Ellicott on Philemon 1:11.]
