a. one held by some obligation, bound to some duty: ὀφειλέτης εἰμί, equivalent to ὀφείλω, followed by an infinitive, Galatians 5:3 (Sophocles Aj. 590); ὀφειλέτης εἰμί τίνος, to be one's debtor i. e. under obligations of gratitude to him for favors received, Romans 15:27; τίνι (dative commodi), to be under obligation to do something for someone, Romans 1:14; Romans 8:12.

b. one who has not yet made amends to one whom he has injured: Matthew 6:12; in imitation of the Chaldean חַיָב, one who owes God penalty or of whom God can demand punishment as something due, i. e. a sinner, Luke 13:4.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the meaning ";coast along"; in Acts 27:8, Field (Notes, p. 143 f.) cites Diod. Sic. xiii. 3 κἀκεῖθεν ἤδη παρελέγοντο τὴν Ἰταλίαν, xiv. 55 αἱ δὲ τριήρεις ἔπλευσαν εἰς τὴν Λιβύην, παρελέγοντο δὲ τὴν γῆν. In BGU II. 665ii. 14 (i/A.D.) ἐνε ̣τ ̣είλατο γὰρ θέων πα ̣ρ ̣α ̣[λ ]έγων, the verb seems to refer to casual, incidental speech.
