And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
a. steward (Strong's) (1121 * ben; 4943 * mesheq) [D.C. note: both Hebrew words are translated "steward"].
1). steward (Unger's Bible Dictionary) a manager or superintendent of another's household.
b. Why"Eliezer of Damascus" was referred to as being from Damascus is not known . The next verse if it is referring to Eliezer, clearly says he was born in Abram's house. Usually, when the term is used it means either where a person was born or was from.
1). In Acts 9:11 the Lord described Saul to Ananias in a vision as "Saul of Tarsus", and of course it refers to where he was from and where he was born, Acts 21:39; and Acts 22:3. Jesus himself in responding to Saul's question of who he was, said "I am Jesus of Nazareth whom thou persecutest", Acts 22:8.
