A — 1: δουλεία
(Strong's #1397 — Noun Feminine — douleia — doo-li'-ah )

akin to deo, "to bind," primarily "the condition of being a slave," came to denote any kind of bondage, as, e.g., of the condition of creation, Romans 8:21 ; of that fallen condition of man himself which makes him dread God, Romans 8:15 , and fear death, Hebrews 2:15 ; of the condition imposed by the Mosaic Law, Galatians 4:24 . See SERVE.

B — 1: δουλεύω
(Strong's #1398 — Verb — douleuo — dool-yoo'-o )

"to serve as a slave, to be a slave, to be in bondage," is frequently used without any association of slavery, e.g., Acts 20:19 ; Romans 6:6 ; 7:6 ; 12:11 ; Galatians 5:13 . See SERVE.

B — 2: δουλόω
(Strong's #1402 — Noun Masculine — douloo — doo-lo'-o )

different from No. 1, in being transitive instead of intransitive, signifies "to make a slave of, to bring into bondage," Acts 7:6 ; 1 Corinthians 9:19 , RV; in the Passive Voice, "to be brought under bondage," 2 Peter 2:19 ; "to be held in bondage," Galatians 4:3 (lit., "were reduced to bondage"); Titus 2:3 , "of being enslaved to wine;" Romans 6:18 , "of service to righteousness" (lit. "were made bondservants"). As with the purchased slave there were no limitations either in the kind or the time of service, so the life of the believer is to be lived in continuous obedience to God. See ENSLAVED , GIVE , SERVANT.

B — 3: δουλαγωγέω
(Strong's #1396 — Verb — doulagogeo — doo-lag-ogue-eh'-o )

"to bring into bondage" (from A, above, and ago, "to bring"), is used in 1 Corinthians 9:27 , concerning the body, RV, "bondage," for AV, "subjection."

B — 4: καταδουλόω
(Strong's #2615 — Verb — katadouloo — kat-ad-oo-lo'-o )

"to bring into bondage," occurs in 2 Corinthians 11:20 ; Galatians 2:4 .
