Headword: *)/ekdeia
Adler number: epsilon,390
Translated headword: arrears
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the residue of what has been indebted. For 'arrears' is the part to pay, of what someone owes, even if not all of it; but 'deficit' [is] not paying it at all. Or 'arrears' is having something but not paying it, 'deficit' not having it at all -- such that the former is voluntary, the latter involuntary.[1]
'Arrears' is a voluntary deprivation of money, 'deficit' an involuntary one.[2]

The two words differentiated here are more alike in the Greek -- e)/kdeia and e)/ndeia -- than they can readily be made to appear in translation.
