BENEFACTOR . Luke 22:25 only, ‘they that exercise authority over them (the Gentiles) are called benefactors.’ The word is an exact tr. [Note: translate or translation.] of the Gr. Euergetçs , a title of honour borne by two of the Gr. kings of Egypt before Christ’s day, Ptolemy III. (b.c. 247 222) and Ptolemy VII. (IX.) (b.c. 147 117). Hence RV [Note: Revised Version.] properly spells with a capital, ‘Benefactors.’
