Keeper, in its widest sense, corresponds to the Heb. שׁוֹמֵר, shomer', Gr. τηρῶν; in a special sense to נוֹטֵר or נוֹצֵר, a watchman, as often rendered; רוֹעֵה, is a shepherd; while שִׂר, φῦλαξ, is a guard over prisoners. These words are of frequent occurrence, besides others in certain peculiar senses or combinations, the meaning being clear from the connection.
