1249 represents the servant in his activity for the work? not in
his relation, either servile, as that of that 1402, or more
voluntary, as in the case of 2324, to a person. 1402 opp. to 1249
denotes a bondman, one who sustains a permanent servile relation to
another. 2324 is the voluntary performer of services, whether as a
freeman or a slave? it is a nobler tenderer word than 1402. 5257
suggests subordination.

doulos is the usual word for slave, one who is permanently in
servitude, in subjection to a master.

therapon is simply one who renders service at a particular time,
sometimes as a slave, more often as a freeman, who renders voluntary
service prompted by duty or love. It denotes one who serves, in
his relation to a person.

diakonos also may designate either a slave or a freeman, it denotes
a servant viewed in relation to his work.

oiketes designates a slave, sometimes being practically equivalent
to doulos. Usually, however, as the etymology of the term
indicates, it means a slave as a member of the household, not
emphasizing the servile idea, but rather the relation which would tend
to mitigate the severity of his condition.

yperetes means literally an under-rower, and was used to describe
an ordinary rower on a war-galley. It is then used, as in the N.T., to
indicate any man, not a slave, who served in a subordinate position
under a superior.
