Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
δουλεία douleía, doo-li'-ah; from G1398; slavery (ceremonially or figuratively):—bondage.
δουλεία (Tdf. -ια, [see Ι, ι]), -ας, , (δουλεύω); slavery, bondage, the condition of a slave: τῆς φθορᾶς, the bondage which consists in decay [Winers Grammar, § 59, 8 a., cf. Buttmann, 78 (68)], equivalent to the law, the necessity, of perishing, Romans 8:21; used of the slavish sense of fear, devoid alike of buoyancy of spirit and of trust in God, such as is produced by the thought of death, Hebrews 2:15, as well as by the Mosaic law in its votaries, Romans 8:15 (πνεῦμα δουλείας); the Mosaic system is said to cause δουλεία on account of the grievous burdens its precepts impose upon its adherents: Galatians 4:24; Galatians 5:1. [From Pindar down.]
