STRONGS NT 2304: θεῖος

θεῖος, θεία, θεῖον (Θεός) (from Homer down), divine: θεία δύναμις, 2 Peter 1:3; φύσις (Diodorus 5, 31), 2 Peter 1:4; neuter τό θεῖον, divinity, deity (Latinnumendivinum), not only used by the Greeks to denote the divine nature, power, providence, in the general, without reference to any individual deity (as Herodotus 3, 108; Thucydides 5, 70; Xenophon, Cyril 4, 2, 15; Hell. 7, 5, 13; mem. 1,4, 18; Plato, Phaedr., p. 242c.; Polybius 32, 25, 7; Diodorus 1, 6; 13, 3; 12; 16, 60; Lucian, de sacrif. 1; pro imagg. 13, 17. 28), but also by Philo (as in mundi opff. § 61; de agric. 17; leg. ad Galatians 1), and by Josephus (Antiquities, 1, 3, 4; 11, 1; 2, 12, 4; 5, 2, 7; 11, 5, 1; 12, 6, 3; 7, 3; 13, 8, 2; 10, 7; 14, 9, 5; 17, 2, 4; 20, 11, 2; b. j. 3, 8, 3; 4, 3, 10), of the one, true God; hence, most appositely employed by Paul, out of regard for Gentile usage, in Acts 17:29.
