THE SYNONYMOUS
WORDS FOR "WORSHIP".

This Is Appendix 137 From The Companion Bible.

  The following six Greek words are rendered "worship" in the Authorized Version:—
 1.  proskuneo = to prostrate one's self (in reverence), do homage. Used, therefore, of the act of worship.
 2.  sebomai = to revere, to feel awe. Used, therefore, of the inward feelings (as No. 1 is of the outward act).
 3.  sebazomai = to be shy, or timid at doing anything. Occurs only in Romans 1:25.
 4.  latreuo = to serve in official service (for hire, or reward). Used of serving God in the externals of His worship.
 5.  eusebeo = to be pious or devout towards any one; to act with reverence, respect, and honour.
 6.  therapeuo = to wait upon, minister to (as a doctor does); hence = to heal; to render voluntary service and attendance. Thus differing from No. 4.
