Cognate: 3405 misthapodosía (from 3408 /misthós, "reward" and 591 /apodídōmi, "return, give back") – properly, compensation corresponding to a particular decision (action). This recompense "swings both ways" – bringing a (just) reward from God for living in faith (Heb 10:35, 11:26), or divine punishment (Heb 2:2) when living in self-government.

3405 /misthapodosía ("divine compensation") is determined by God the Judge – i.e. what He personally values (note the focus on God as the Source, with apo). See also 3408 (misthós).

[3405 /misthapodosía refers to the "payment of price due" (Souter); originally, "payment of wages, recompense" (Abbott-Smith).]
