Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g2304 Greek: theios


"divine" (from theos, "God"), is used of the power of God, 2Pe 1:3, and of His nature, ver. 4, in each place, as that which proceeds from Himself. In Act 17:29 it is used as a noun with the definite article, to denote "the Godhead," the Deity (i.e., the one true God). This word, instead of theos, was purposely used by the Apostle in speaking to Greeks on Mars Hill, as in accordance with Greek usage. Cp. DIVINITY. In the Sept., Exd 31:3; 35:31; Job 27:3; 33:4; Pro 2:17.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g2999 Greek: latreia


akin to latreuo, "to serve," primarily, any service for hire, denotes in Scripture the service of God according to the requirements of the Levitical Law, Rom 9:4; Hbr 9:1, 6, "Divine service." It is used in the more general sense of service to God, in Jhn 16:2; Rom 12:1.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
