Dictionary Mode: easton:Chamberlain
Chamberlain @ a confidential servant of the king Genesis:37:36 Genesis:39:1). In Romans:16:23 mention is made of "Erastus the chamberlain." Here the word denotes the treasurer of the city, or the quaestor, as the Romans styled him. He is almost the only convert from the higher ranks of whom mention is made (comp. Acts:17:34). Blastus, Herod's "chamberlain" Acts:12:20), was his personal attendant or valet-de-chambre. The Hebrew word _saris_, thus translated in Esther:1:10 Esther:1:15 Esther:2:3 Esther:2:14, 21, etc., properly means an eunuch (as in the marg.), as it is rendered in Isaiah:39:7 Isaiah:56:3.
