Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
δεσπότης despótēs, des-pot'-ace; perhaps from G1210 and πόσις pósis (a husband); an absolute ruler ("despot"):—Lord, master.
STRONGS NT 1203: δεσπότης
δεσπότης, -ου, , [from Pindar down], a master, lord (as of δοῦλοι, οἰκέται): 1 Timothy 6:1, [2]; 2 Timothy 2:21; Titus 2:9; 1 Peter 2:18; God is thus addressed by one who calls himself his δοῦλος: Luke 2:29, cf. Acts 4:24, 29 (δεσπότης τῶν πάντων, Job 5:8; Wis. 6:8); Christ is so called, as one who has bought his servants, 2 Peter 2:1; rules over his church, Jude 1:4 [some take δ. here as designating God; cf. R. V. marginal reading]; and whose prerogative it is to take vengeance on those who persecute his followers, Revelation 6:10.
[Synonyms: δεσπότης κύριος: δ. was strictly the correlative of slave, δοῦλος, and hence denoted absolute ownership and uncontrolled power; κύριος had a wider meaning, applicable to the various ranks and relations of life, and not suggestive either of poperty or of absolutism. Ammonius under the word δεσπότης says δ. τῶν ἀργυρωνήτων· κύριος δὲ καὶ πατὴρ υἱοῦ καὶ αὐτός τις ἑαυτοῦ. So Philo, quis rer. div. heres § 6 ὥστε τὸν δεσπότην κύριον εῖναι καὶ ἔτι ὡσανεὶ φοβερὸν κύριον οὐ μόνον τὸ κῦρος καὶ τὸ κράτος ἁπάντων ἀνημμένον, ἀλλὰ καὶ δέος καὶ φόβον ἱκανὸν ἑμποιῆσαι. Cf. Trench § 28; Woolsey, in Bib. Sacr. for 1861, p. 599f; Schmidt ch. 161, 5.]
