HELPS Lexicon excerpt

1401 doúlos (a masculine noun, of uncertain derivation) – properly, someone who belongs to another; a bond-slave, without any ownership rights of their own.  Ironically, 1401/doúlos ("bond-slave") is used with the highest dignity in the NT – namely, of believers who willingly live under Christ's authority as His devoted followers.
