ἐφημερία, -ας, , (ἐφημέριος, -ον, by day, lasting or acting for a day, daily), a word not found in secular authors; the Sept. in Chronicles and Nehemiah;
1. a service limited to a stated series of days (cf. German Tagdienst, Wochendienst); so used of the service of the priests and Levites: Nehemiah 13:30; 1 Chronicles 25:8; 2 Chronicles 13:10, etc.
