1: οἰκοδεσπότης

(Strong's #3617 — Noun Masculine — oikodespotes — oy-kod-es-pot'-ace )

denotes "the master of a house" (oikos, "a house," despotes, "a master"), "a householder." It occurs only in the Synoptists and there 12 times. It is rendered "goodman" in Luke 22:11 , where "of the house" is put separately; in Matthew 20:11 , where the AV has "the goodman of the house" for the one word, the RV renders it by "house-holder," as in Matthew 20:1; in Matthew 24:43 , "master;" so in Luke 12:39; in Mark 14:14 , both have "the goodman of the house." See HOUSEHOLDER , MASTER.
