Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 4464: ῤάβδος

ῤάβδος, ῤάβδου, (probably akin to ῤαπίς, Latinverber; cf. Curtius, § 513), in various senses from Homer down; the Sept. for מַטֶּה, שֵׁבֶט, מַקֵּל, מִשְׁעֶנֶת, etc., a staff; walking-stick: equivalent to a twig, rod, branch, Hebrews 9:4 (Numbers 17:2ff, Hebrew text ff); Revelation 11:1; a rod, with which one is beaten, 1 Corinthians 4:21 (Plato, legg. 3, p. 700 c.; Plutarch, others; πατάσσειν τινα ἐν ῤάβδῳ, Exodus 21:20; Isaiah 10:24); a staff: as used on a journey, Matthew 10:10; Mark 6:8; Luke 9:3; or to lean upon, Hebrews 11:21 (after the Sept. of Genesis 47:31, where the translators read מַטֶּה, for מִטָּה, a bed; (cf. προσκυνέω, a.)); or by shepherds, Revelation 2:27; Revelation 12:5; Revelation 19:15, in which passages as ἐν ῤάβδῳ ποιμαίνειν is figuratively applied to a king, so ῤάβδῳ σιδηρᾷ, with a rod of iron, indicates the severest, most rigorous, rule; hence, ῤάβδος is equivalent to a royal scepter (like שֵׁבֶט, Psalm 2:9; Psalm 45:8; for שַׁרְבִיט, Esther 4:11; Esther 5:2): Hebrews 1:8 (from Psalm 45:8).
