The Greek word “doma”

Limited to Mt. 7:11; Lk. 11:13; Eph. 4:8; Phil. 4:17, the Greek noun “doma” meant “gift.”  Jesus spoke about giving “gifts” to children (Mt. 7:11; Lk. 11:13) in his “argument a minori ad maius” (Exegetical Dictionary of the New Testament, 1:344).  More common words for “gift” are dorea and doron.
