earthly Dad is a Lord over his humble home

(121) 2Sa 4:8 And they brought the head of Ishbosheth unto David to Hebron , and said to the king , Behold the head of Ishbosheth the son of Saul thine enemy , which sought thy life ; and the LORD hath avenged my lord (adown) the king this day of Saul , and of his seed .

.. and the LORD hath avenged my lord (adown) the king ..

The use of 'adown' is aligning more with 'lord' than with 'master'... One must not downgrade the ruling of an earthy king, let alone a heavenly king...Lord is more appropriate... Is not an earthly dad a 'Pastor king' or 'Lord' over his little home, his queen the ruler of his children, and he the ruler or lord over his family... What would the term 'master' convey ? A downgrade of ruling power...even for a husband over his home.

(122) 2Sa 9:9 Then the king called to Ziba , Saul's servant , and said unto him, I have given unto thy master's (adown) son all that pertained to Saul and to all his house .

Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants .

.. that thy lord's (adown) son may ..

(124) 2Sa 9:11 Then said Ziba unto the king , According to all that my lord (adown) the king hath commanded his servant , so shall thy servant do . As for Mephibosheth , said the king, he shall eat at my table , as one of the king's sons .

.. According to all that my lord (adown) the king ..

(125) 2Sa 10:3 And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord (adown) , Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father , that he hath sent comforters unto thee? hath not David rather sent his servants unto thee, to search the city , and to spy it out , and to overthrow it?

.. said unto Hanun their lord (adown) , Thinkest ..

(126) 2Sa 11:9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord (adown) , and went not down to his house .

(127) 2Sa 11:11 And Uriah said unto David , The ark , and Israel , and Judah , abide in tents ; and my lord (adown) Joab , and the servants of my lord (adown) , are encamped in the open fields ; shall I then go into mine house , to eat and to drink , and to lie with my wife ? as thou livest , and as thy soul liveth , I will not do this thing .

.. and my lord (adown) Joab ..

(128) 2Sa 11:13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk : and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord (adown) , but went not down to his house .

..with the servants of his lord (adown) , but went ..

(129) 2Sa 12:8 And I gave thee thy master's (adown) house , and thy master's (adown) wives into thy bosom , and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah ; and if that had been too little , I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things .

.. thy master's (adown) house..

(130) 2Sa 13:32 And Jonadab , the son of Shimeah David's brother , answered and said , Let not my lord (adown) suppose that they have slain all the young men the king's sons ; for Amnon only is dead : for by the appointment of Absalom this hath been determined from the day that he forced his sister Tamar .

.. Let not my lord (adown) suppose ..
