Homemaker / Keeper at Home (Titus 2:5)

Oikouros is the Greek word here that has been translated as homemakers in the NKJV. The KJV translates it as keepers at home. If we look up the word in Strong’s Concordance (G3626) we will find out that it is only used once (in Titus 2:5). Strong defines it as: a stayer at home.

Oikourus consists of:
oikos (G3624) which is translated as home or house/-hold (and temple in some cases)
and
ouros which means a guard; be “ware”
