Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
παῖς paîs, paheece; perhaps from G3817; a boy (as often beaten with impunity), or (by analogy), a girl, and (genitive case) a child; specially, a slave or servant (especially a minister to a king; and by eminence to God):—child, maid(-en), (man) servant, son, young man.
STRONGS NT 3816: παῖς
παῖς, genitive παιδός, , , from Homer down; in the N. T. only in the Gospels and Acts;
1. a child, boy or girl; the Sept. for נַעַר and נַעֲרָה (Genesis 24:28; Deuteronomy 22:15, etc.): παῖς, Matthew 17:18; Luke 2:43; Luke 9:42; Acts 20:12; παῖς, Luke 8:51, 54; plural infants, children, Matthew 2:16; Matthew 21:15; παῖς τίνος, the son of one, John 4:51.
2. (Like the Latin puer, equivalent to) servant, slave (Aeschylus choëph. 652; Aristophanes nub. 18, 132; Xenophon, mem. 3, 13, 6; symp. 1, 11; 2, 23; Plato, Charm., p. 155 a.; Protag., p. 310c. and often; Diodorus 17, 76; others; so the Sept. times without number for עֶבֶד (cf. Winers Grammar, p. 30, no. 3); cf. the similar use of German Bursch (French garcon, English boy)): Matthew 8:6, 8, 13; Luke 7:7 cf. Luke 7:10; Luke 12:45; Luke 15:26. an attendant, servant, specifically, a king's attendant, minister: Matthew 14:2 (Diodorus 17:36; hardly so in the earlier Greek writings; Genesis 41:37; 1 Samuel 16:15-17; 1 Samuel 18:22, 26; Daniel 2:7; 1 Macc. 1:6, 8; 1 Esdr. 2:16 1 Esdr. 5:33, 35); hence, in imitation of the Hebrew יְהוָה עֶבֶד, παῖς τοῦ Θεοῦ is used of a devout worshipper of God, one who fulfils God's will (Psalm 68:18 (Ps. 69:18); Psalm 112:1 (Ps. 113:1); Wis. 2:13, etc.) thus, the people of Israel, Luke 1:54 (Isaiah 41:8; Isaiah 42:19; Isaiah 44:1f, 21, etc.); David, Luke 1:69; Acts 4:25 (Psalm 17:1 (Ps. 18:1); Ps 35:1 (Ps. 36:1) (Ald., Complutensian), etc.); likewise any upright and godly man whose agency God employs in executing his purposes; thus in the N. T. Jesus the Messiah: Matthew 12:18 (from Isaiah 42:1); Acts 3:13, 26; Acts 4:27, 30 (cf. Harnack on the Epistle of Barnabas 6, 1 and Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 59, 2 ); in the O. T. also Moses, Nehemiah 1:7f; the prophets, 1 Esdr. 8:79(81); Baruch 2:20, 24; and others. [Synonym: παῖς, παιδάριον, παιδίον, παιδίσκη, τέκνον: The grammarian Aristophanes is quoted by Ammonius (s.v. γέρων) as defining thus: παιδίον, τὸ τρεφόμενον ὑπὸ τιθηνοῦ· παιδάριον δέ, τὸ ἤδη περιπατοῦν καὶ τῆς λέξεως ἀντεχόμενον· παιδίσκος δʹ͵ ὁ ἐν τῂ ἐχομένῃ ἡλικίᾳ· παῖς δʹ διὰ τῶν ἐγκυκλίων μαθημάτων δυνάμενος ἰέναι· Philo (de mund. opif. §36) quotes the physician Hippocrates as follows; ἐν ἀνθρώπου ϕύσει ἑπτά έἰσιν ὧραι κ.τ.λ.· παιδίον μέν ἐστιν ἄχρις ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν͵ ὀδόντων ἐκβολῆς· ταῖς δὲ ἄχρι γονῆς ἐκϕύσεως͵ εἰς τὰ δὶς ἑπτά· μειράκιον δὲ ἄχρι γενείου λαχνώσεως͵ ἐς τὰ τρὶς ἑπτά͵ etc., According to Schmidt, παιδίον denotes a child up to its first school years; παῖς is a child of any age; (παιδίσκος and παιδίσκη, in which reference to descent quite disappears, cover the years of late childhood and early youth. But usage is untrammelled; from a child is expressed either by ἐκ παιδός (most frequently). or ἐκ παιδίου, or ἐκ (ὰπό) παιδαρίου. παῖς and τέκνον denote a child alike as respects descent and age, reference to the latter being more prominent in the former word, to descent in τέκνον; but the period παῖς covers is not sharply defined; and, in classic usage as in modern, youthful designations cleave to the female sex longer than to the male. See Schmidt ch. 69; Höhne in Luthardt's Zeitschrift u. s. w. for 1882, p. 57 sqq.] On the elasticity of the term παῖς as respects age, see Bp. Lghtft. Apostolic Fathers, Pt. II. vol. i. p. 432 note.
