  • Those who were strangers generally, and who owned no landed property.

  • Strangers dwelling in another country without being naturalized (Leviticus 22:10 ; Psalm 39:12 ).

    Both of these classes were to enjoy, under certain conditions, the same rights as other citizens (Leviticus 19:33,34 ; Deuteronomy 10:19 ). They might be naturalized and permitted to enter into the congregation of the Lord by submitting to circumcision and abandoning idolatry (Deuteronomy 23:3-8 ).

    This term is used (Ephesians 2:12 ) to denote persons who have no interest in Christ.
