Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Deya (देय) refers to the “granting” or “giving” (of a boon), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.15 (“The penance and reign of Tārakāsura”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka said to Brahmā: “O Pitāmaha, if you are glad and ready to grant me the boon what is it that cannot be achieved by me? Hence I request you for this boon. Please listen. O lord of gods, if you are pleased and if a boon is to be given [i.e., deya] to me, be kind enough to grant [i.e., deya] me two boons. O great lord, there should certainly be no man equal to me in strength in this entire universe created by you. [...]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index

Deya (देय) refers to “(that which is to be) given”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 19).—Accordingly, “This dharma of generosity favors the adept if he seeks the Path. Why is that? Nirvāṇa is called the cessation of the fetters (saṃyojana-nirodha). Now, when generosity is practiced, the afflictions (kleśa) diminish. Thus generosity favors nirvāṇa. Actually, i) by sacrificing the thing to be given (deya-dravya), greed (mātsarya) is opposed; ii) by honoring the receiver of the gift (pratigrāhaka), envy (īrya) is opposed; [...]”.
