When they were by Jebus and the day was almost gone, the servant said to his lord, “Please now, let us turn aside into this city of the Jebusites and spend the night in it.” Bible

“the servant said to his lord.” The word “lord” is a grammatical plural, “lords,” but referring to the servant’s master or lord. This is the idiom, the plural of majesty (cp. Gesenius).
