Resource Toolbox

"Strange" as contrasted with "an Israelite." Such wives are spoken of in the King James Version Ezra 10:2 , Ezra 10:11 (the English Revised Version "strange women," the American Standard Revised Version "foreign women"; see STRANGER AND SOJOURNER ; in the parallel 1 Esdras 8:68 through 9:37, the King James Version uses "strange wives" and "strange women" indifferently, and the Revised Version (British and American) here follows the King James Version) as "wives of the people of the land," in taking whom the men of Israel are said to have "trespassed against their God." Accordingly such wives were "put away."
