A — 1: ἴδιος
(Strong's #2398 — Adjective — idios — id'-ee-os )

"one's own," is applied to kairos, "a season," in Galatians 6:9 , "in due season," i.e., in the season Divinely appointed for the reaping. So in 1 Timothy 2:6 , "the testimony to be borne in its own (AV, 'due') times (seasons);" 1 Timothy 6:15 , "in its own (idios) times (seasons);" similarly in Titus 1:3 . See BUSINESS , B.

Note: For axios, "the due reward," see REWARD , Note (1).

B — 1: ὀφείλω
(Strong's #3784 — — opheilo — of-i'-lo, of-i-leh'-o )

signifies "to owe, to be indebted," especially financially, Matthew 18:30 , RV, "that which was due;" Matthew 18:34 , "all that was due." See BEHOVE , BOUND (to be).

B — 2: δεῖ
(Strong's #1163 — Verb — dei — die, deh-on' )

an impersonal verb signifying "it is necessary," is translated "was due" in Romans 1:27 , RV (AV, "was meet"). See BEHOVE.

C — 1: ὀφειλή
(Strong's #3782 — Noun Feminine — opheile — of-i-lay' )

akin to B, No. 1, is rendered "dues" in Romans 13:7 . In 1 Corinthians 7:3 , RV, it is translated "her due" (the AV, "due benevolence" follows another reading).

Notes: (1) In the phrases "in due season" in Matthew 24:45 ; Luke 12:42 ; Romans 5:6 (lit., "according to time"), and "in due time," 1 Peter 5:6 , there is no word representing "due" in the original, and the phrases are, lit., "in season," "in time."

(2) For the phrase "born out of due time," in 1 Corinthians 15:8 , see BEGET , B, No. 2.
