δωρεά dōreá, do-reh-ah'; from G1435; a gratuity:—gift.
δωρεά, -ᾶς, , (δίδωμι); from [Aeschylus and] Herodotus down; a gift: John 4:10; Acts 8:20; Acts 11:17; Romans 5:15; 2 Corinthians 9:15; Hebrews 6:4; χάρις ἐδόθη κατὰ τὸ μέτρον τῆς δωρεᾶς τοῦ Χριστοῦ, according to the measure in which Christ gave it, Ephesians 4:7; with an epexegetical genitive of the thing given, viz. τοῦ ἁγίου πνεύματος, Acts 2:38; Acts 10:45; δικαιοσύνης, Romans 5:17 [L WH Tr marginal reading brackets τ. δωρ.]; τῆς χάριτος τοῦ θεοῦ, Ephesians 3:7. The accusative δωρεάν (properly, as a gift, gift-wise [cf. Winers Grammar, 230 (216); Buttmann, 153 (134)]) is used adverbially; Sept. for חִנָּם;
a. freely, for naught, gratis, gratuitously: Matthew 10:8; Romans 3:24; 2 Corinthians 11:7; 2 Thessalonians 3:8; Revelation 21:6; Revelation 22:17, (Polybius 18, 17, 7; Exodus 21:11; δωρεὰν ἄνευ ἀργυρίου, Isaiah 52:3).
b. by a usage of which as yet no example has been noted from Greek writings, without just cause, unnecessarily: John 15:25 (Psalm 68:5 (Ps. 69:5); Psalm 34:19 (Ps. 35:19); Galatians 2:21 (Job 1:9 [?]; Psalm 34:7 (Ps. 35:7) [where Symm. ἀναιτίως]; so the Latin gratuitus: Livy 2, 42 gratuitus furor, Seneca, epistles 105, 3 [book 18, epistle 2 § 3] odium aut est ex offensa... aut gratuitum).
