STRONGS NT 3968: πατρίς
πατρίς, πατρίδος, (πατήρ), one's native country;
a. as in classical Greek from Homer down, one's fatherland, one's (own) country: John 4:44 (cf. γάρ, II. 1); equivalent to a fixed abode (home (R. V. a country of their own), opposed to the land where one παρεπιδημει), Hebrews 11:14.
b. one's native (own) place i. e. city: Matthew 13:54, 57; Mark 6:1, 4; Luke 4:23,(24); so Philo, leg. ad Gaium § 36 (ἐστι δέ μοι Ἱεροσόλυμα πατρίς); Josephus, Antiquities 10, 7, 3; 6, 4, 6; πατρίς Ἀκυληια ἦν, Herodian, 8, 3, 2 (1 edition, Bekker).
