Boon[ 1,,G1434, dorema ]
translated boon" in James 1:17, RV, is thus distinguished, as the thing given, from the preceding word in the verse, dosis, "the act of giving" (AV, "gift" in each case); elsewhere in Romans 5:16. It is to be distinguished also from doron, the usual word for a gift. See GIFT.
