Stranger

 

Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brethren, Deuteronomy 17:15

And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof, Exodus 12:48

 

Even though "nikro" is the Hebrew word from which the English word "negro" and the Spanish word "negra" [which means "black"] were derived, the word "nikro" does not include blacks, as they are referred to in Scripture as "behemah", which was translated in the KJV as "beast" 84 times, "cattle" 57 times, and "beasts" 52 times.

Without knowing that the English word "stranger" in the above verses is translated from two very different Hebrew words, "nikro" and "ger", you'd believe that there's a serious conflict in Scripture--on the one hand a "stranger" "shall be as one that is born in the land", and on the other hand we cannot "set him king over thee".  Most Hebrew "experts" called "jews" give themselves away when asked what's the difference between "nikro" and "ger", because most of them don't know, or pretend not to know.  Exodus 12:48 is precisely the verse jews use to proclaim that any race is welcome into the Israelite community, but they stumble and stammer really hard when confronted with Deuteronomy 17:15.

Are jews even aware that "nikro" is never a reference to Israelites and is always a reference to someone of another race with whom Israelites cannot associate, whereas "ger" is always a reference to a fellow Israelite visiting another tribe or country?  It's their studied ignorance on this very issue which enables jews to proclaim [falsely] that Israelites have always been a mixed race--while at the same time proclaiming that "race" is a "social construct which doesn't exist" );

 

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT there are eight words which are translated as stranger, strangers, foreigner, sojourners or aliens and some clarification is necessary. Without this clarification we have translations which make the Bible appear contradictory and inconsistent.

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT there are ten words which are variously translated, so that it's clear that each word in the original has a different meaning. Some of the New Testament quotations are from Old Testament origins and therefore they show a close alliance between the two languages. Specifically, the Hebrew words goor, ger, zur, magur, nekar, nikro, towshab have very different meanings, so translating them all as "stranger" caused the original distinction between to be lost in the King James Translation of the Holy Bible, as well as in all following translations which followed the original mistakes made in the KJV.

Gur are strangers who are Israelites travelling in foreign lands.

H1481

gu^r

goor

A primitive root; properly to turn aside from the road (for a lodging or any other purpose), that is, sojourn (as a guest); also to shrink, fear (as in a strange place); also to gather for hostility (as afraid): - abide, assemble, be afraid, dwell, fear, gather (together), inhabitant, remain, sojourn, stand in awe, (be) stranger, X surely

Gen 12:10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

Exo 6:4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

Psa 105:12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

Ger are strangers or guests who are always fellow Israelites.

H1616

ge^r ge^yr

gare, gare

From H1481; properly a guest; by implication a foreigner: - alien, sojourner, stranger.

Gen 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

Exo 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

Exo 18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange [nikro, #5237] land:

Exo 23:9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Lev 17:8 And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man [there be] of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

Eze 47:23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.

2Sa 1:13 And David said unto the young man that told him, Whence [art] thou? And he answered, I [am] the son of a stranger, an Amalekite.

This Amalekite or son of an Amalekite who had slain Saul was attempting to ingratiate himself to David by referring to his Amalekite father as a "ger".  David didn't accept this characterization and instead slew him, saying:  "Thy blood [be] upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD'S anointed".  The Amalekite proved that an Amalekite cannot be a "ger" by slaying the king of Israel, wounded or not.  By slaying the Amalekite, David made it clear that neither Israelites or he ever considered Amalekites to be "ger".

Zur are strangers who are always undesirable to or enemies of Israelites.

H2114

zu^r

zoor

A primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery: - (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange (-r, thing, woman).

Exo 29:33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate [and] to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat [thereof], because they [are] holy.

Lev 22:12 If the priest's daughter also be [married] unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.

Num 16:40 [To be] a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which [is] not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

Isa 1:7 Your country [is] desolate, your cities [are] burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and [it is] desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

Eze 28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD.

Joe 3:17 So shall ye know that I [am] the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

Magur are strangers who are either Israelites or non-Israelite travellers.

H4033

ma^gu^r ma^gu^r

maw-goor', maw-goor'

From H1481 in the sense of lodging; a temporary abode; by extension a permanent residence: - dwelling, pilgrimage, where sojourn, be a stranger. Compare H4032.

Gen 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Gen 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

Gen 37:1 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

Eze 20:38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD.

Nekar are strangers or foreigners who are non-Israelites who are put away.

H5236

ne^ka^r

nay-kawr'

From H5234; foreign, or (concretely) a foreigner, or (abstractly) heathendom: - alien, strange (+ -er).

Gen 17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which [is] not of thy seed.

Neh 9:2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.

Eze 44:7 In that ye have brought [into my sanctuary] strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, [even] my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.

Isaiah 56:3 "Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people".

Note that "his people" are the Israelites, and that there are a number of conditions for "nekar" to receive "a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters [read: Israelites]":

1) join themselves to the LORD.

2) love the name of the LORD.

3) be his servants.

4) keepeth the sabbath from polluting it.

5) taketh hold of my covenant.

6) offer "burnt offerings and their sacrifices".

Is there a single verse in the entire Holy Bible, or is there a single instance today across the entire globe, where a single "nekar" ever met these conditions? No. The only thing "nekar" ever accomplished was to prevent Israelites from upholding their Torah [read: God's Law]. Furthermore, Isaiah's entire point here is that "His watchmen", who are appointed to keep the "nekar" out, or KICK them out as Nehemiah did above, not place them above "his people", the "sons and daughters" of Israel, had failed miserably in that task:

Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

nikro are strangers who are adulterous, or foreigners, non-Israelites who are not brothers.

H5237

nokri^y

nok-ree'

From H5235 (second form); strange, in a variety of degrees and applications (foreign, non-relative, adulterous, different, wonderful): - alien, foreigner, outlandish, strange (-r, woman).

Deu 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set [him] king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: [one] from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which [is] not thy brother.

Deu 23:20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

Ezr 10:2 And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, [one] of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.

WILLIE MARTIN

Strangers

        It would appear that very few people know what the word “STRANGER,” or “STRANGERS” actually mean in the Scriptures. This study is to provide you with the information that these words can mean other Israelites from other countries and it can mean complete STRANGERS of another race or people.

        The word “STRANGER” is used some 129 times in the Scriptures; 121 times in the Old Testament and 8 times in the New Testament of the King James Version of the Bible.

        The word “STRANGERS” is used some 80 times in the Scriptures; 65 times in the Old Testament and 15 times in the New Testament of the King James Version of the Bible.

        The first use of the word “STRANGER” is in Genesis 15:13:

        “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a STRANGER in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years.”

        This is in reference to the time that most of the Israelites would spend in the land of Egypt. Joseph was the first one to go there as a prisoner and through the help of Yahweh was raised to be second in command in that country until his death. Joseph later brought his entire family into Egypt and placed them in some of the most fertile land in all of Egypt.

        Today it is hard to find any of Yahweh’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments that we have not perverted, due to the false teachings of the Judeo-Christian clergy, and the laziness of Judeo-Christians in general. Take for example the laws of citizenship and eligibility for public office.

        Anybody from a country whose people are not of our race, whose civilization is not of our sort, whose ideals are not like ours at all, can come in here and after a relatively brief period be naturalized and given full citizenship, equal to someone born here. That is completely contrary to Yahweh’s law.

        Yahweh’s law is explained in detail in Deuteronomy 23:3-8. Those who are of the same race as ours, but not of Israel: Remember that there were descendants of Abraham by a number of sons, and only one of them was Isaac; those who are racially the same, although not of our Israel nations, they were not permitted citizenship until the third generation born in the land. By that time, they could have pretty well absorbed our way of looking on things. But as to those who are racially not the same, they could not be admitted to citizenship even to the tenth generation.

        Aliens were not permitted to hold any public office. Deuteronomy 17:15:

        “...thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.”

        That word “stranger” doesn’t mean somebody to whom you have not been formally introduced; it is the Hebrew word “nikro,” which means a person of a different race. When any non-Israelite is able to gain public office, that is clearly stated in the Bible as being a curse upon us and a punishment for our wickedness.

        Deuteronomy 28:15, 43-45:

        `“But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yahweh thy God, to observe to do all his commandment and his statutes which I command thee this day; that these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.”

        Then He goes on to list a number of them, and you come to this (In Deuteronomy 15:43-45):

        “The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail...because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of Yahweh thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee.”

        The very fact that America can have a Negro running for mayor of any city USA, or the Senate, or the House of Representatives, in any state, or on a national level shows to what an extent we have sunk in the eyes of Yahweh. This is something that is always promoted by those who like to call themselves “liberal,” and that also is taken up in the Bible.

        In the thirty-second chapter of Isaiah, he starts out talking about what it is going to be like in the kingdom of God, when all our present troubles are done away with, and we are living under the reign of Yahweh.

        And in Isaiah 32:5, he says that then

        “...the vile (v-i-l-e) person shall be no more called liberal...”

He knew his liberals!

        As to foreign policy: You hear stupid people always parroting, “O, you must love your enemies.” Remember, the Bible is very careful to say “your enemy” and to distinguish between “your” enemy and “God’s” enemy. If your fellow Israelite is your enemy, he is your enemy for one of two reason.

        Either you actually have done something wrong to him, in which case you should make amends, or he mistakenly thinks you have done something wrong to him, in which case you should try to get him to understand that you didn’t do it. But now, God’s enemy is a very different thing.

        Remember, on the break-up of Israel, on the death of Solomon, the northern kingdom went into idolatry immediately, and of course Yahweh naturally took away His favor from the northern kingdom of Israel on that account. A little while after that, one of the kings of Judah, who was making a half-hearted attempt to be good, sent military aid to help the king of Israel in some battle or other, and he was given this rebuke:

        “Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord? Therefore is wrath upon thee from before the Lord?” (2 Chronicles 19:2)

        When you help Yahweh’s enemies, when you arrange yourself on their side, you yourself become the enemy of Yahweh and can expect to pay the penalty accordingly; and parroting, “love your enemy, love your enemy,” isn’t going to change the facts a bit. You don’t fool Yahweh with catch phrases.

        Then in Genesis 17:12:

        “And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any STRANGER, which is not of thy seed.”

        STRANGER: Strong’s Concordance: #5236 nekar (naykawr')' from #5234; foreign, or (concretely) a foreigner, or (abstractly) heathendom: KJV  alien, strange (+er).

        Before we go any further with this we need to remind you that the entire Bible is the history of the conflict between Yahweh our God and the rebel Satan, also carried on between THEIR CHILDREN. Didn’t you know that they both had children? Yes, we do mean children, not merely followers. There are those who deny this truth, but they are deceived or they are deceivers doing the work of the devil, called Satan.

        Luke 3:38 tells us ADAM WAS THE SON OF GOD and surely you know Adam had children and descendants down through our won generations. In many other places, Yahweh refers to His children. For just a few of these consider Deuteronomy 32:19:

        “And when Yahweh saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of HIS SONS AND OF HIS DAUGHTERS.”

        Isaiah 43:6 records:

        “I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring MY SONS from afar and MY DAUGHTERS from the ends of the earth.”

        Isaiah 45:11 records;

        “Thus saith Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel and his Maker. Ask me of things to come concerning my SONS and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.”
        In Jeremiah 14:8:

        “O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a STRANGER in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?”

        Psalm 82:6 states:

        “I have said, Ye are Gods; and all of you are children of the Most High.”

        In the New Testament we read in John 11:51-52;

        “He prophesied that Yahshua should die for that nation; and not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together THE CHILDREN OF YAHWEH, THAT WERE SCATTERED ABROAD.”

        Paul in Romans 8:14, 16 says;

        “For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, THEY ARE THE SONS OF YAHWEH. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF YAHWEH.”   

        As to the children of Satan, this also is affirmed in the Bible from beginning to end. In Genesis 3:15 where Yahweh tells Satan, “I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between THY SEED AND HER SEED,” the same Hebrew word for seed or descendants is used in both instances. Satan was to have just as literal seed, or children, as the woman Eve. Yahshua affirmed this several times, for example in Matthew 13:38-39 where He said:

        “The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom (Yahweh’s children): but the tares are THE CHILDREN OF THE WICKED ONE; the enemy that sowed them is the devil.”

        In John 6:70-71 Yahshua said to His 12 disciples,

        “Have not I chosen you 12 and ONE OF YOU IS A DEVIL?”

very carefully read John 8:31-55 where Yahshua said to these people;

        “I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with YOUR father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Yahshua saith unto them, IF ye were Abraham’s CHILDREN, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of Yahweh; YE DO THE DEEDS OF YOUR FATHER.”

        They tried to masquerade as Yahweh’s children, but they could not deceive Yahshua. They said:

        “We have one father, even Yahweh. Yahshua said unto them, IF YAHWEH WERE YOUR FATHER, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from Yahweh; YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. It is my father that honoreth me: of whom ye say that he is your God: Yet ye have not known him.”

        Yahshua was not using vulgarly abusive language to them, He was stating a biological fact, with scientific accuracy. Paul also does not hesitate to identify certain people as the CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL. Meeting one of these devils, which is recorded in Acts 13:6-10, Paul clearly called him THOU CHILD OF THE DEVIL.

        In the thousands of years of this conflict, whenever we have remembered that we are the children of God, remained loyal to Him and remembered that God Himself put enmity between HIS children and SATAN'S CHILDREN, we have had prosperity and high civilization, with very little crime. The wars which the wicked started against us ended quickly with tremendous victories in our favor. Satan's tactics have always been the same down through the ages.

        “And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a STRANGER?” (Proverbs 5:20)

        STRANGER: Strong’s Concordance: #5237 nikro (nokree'); from OT:5235 (second form); strange, in a variety of degrees and applications (foreign, nonrelative, adulterous, different, wonderful):
      
        First he tries to crush us by force, as the Bible records many times and as we saw a few years ago in Japan's treacherous attack upon us. But these attacks always fail, when we remember who WE are and who THEY are and act accordingly.
      
        Then Satan tries another method. Since God has given us the victory whenever we remember that we are HIS CHILDREN and have nothing to do with the children and the ways of Satan.

        The only way to conquer and enslave or destroy us is to make us forget this division between the CHILDREN OF GOD and the CHILDREN OF SATAN, get us all mixed together so our ways will be corrupted with theirs, our children will learn their evil, our government will be controlled by their power and they will make us enemies of God like themselves.

        “Thus saith the Lord GOD; No STRANGER, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any STRANGER that is among the children of Israel.” (Ezekiel 44:9)

        STRANGER: Strong’s Concordance: #5236 nekar (naykawr')' from OT:5234; foreign, or (concretely) a foreigner, or (abstractly) heathendom: KJV  alien, strange (+er).

        STRANGER: Strong’s Concordance: #1121 ben (bane); from OT:1129; a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., [like OT:1, OT:251, etc.]): KJV  + afflicted, age, [Ahoh] [Ammon] [Hachmon] [Lev] ite, [anointed] one, appointed to, (+)arrow, [Assyr] [Babylon] [Egypt] [Grec] ian, one born, bough, branch, breed, + (young) bullock, + (young) calf, X came up in, child, colt, X common, X corn, daughter, X of first, + firstborn, foal, + very fruitful, + postage, X in, + kid, + lamb, (+)man, meet, + mighty, + nephew, old, (+)people, + rebel, + robber, X servant born, X soldier, son, + spark, + steward, + STRANGER, X surely, them of, + TUMULTUOUS ONE, + valiant [est], whelp, worthy, young (one), youth. (Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded GreekHebrew Dictionary. Copyright (c) 1994, Biblesoft and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

        Only when we are in rebellion against God, and therefore do not receive His help, can Satan and his children hope to destroy us. We were warned of this, as of all other dangers.

        In Deuteronomy 7:24 we got the first warning:

        "Thou shalt smite them and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them: neither shalt thou make marriages with them: thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following Me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you and destroy thee suddenly."

        But we have allowed them to enter our land in great numbers, multitudes of them were admitted illegally under the Roosevelt administration. We have allowed them to take control over our commerce, our government, our schools and now they who hate our God are even laying hands on our churches. God warned us not to allow them in the land. "For they will turn away thy son from following Me."

        “In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the STRANGERS carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.” (Obadiah 1:11)

        They have done this. Their organizations have made such a bitter fight against any mention of the name of Jesus Christ in our schools that many schools boards have yielded to their pressure. They have sometimes been able to put some of their own people into public office, where they have ruled officially that we cannot even read one verse from the Bible in our schools, because it offends them!
      
        Our children are not allowed to hear the name of God in our schools and now even our churches are being infiltrated and corrupted in the same way. Under the guise of "interfaith" movements, supposedly Christian ministers have been induced to bring into their pulpits those whose official doctrine calls our Savior, Jesus Christ, a liar and a fraud.

        To avoid offending these people, supposedly Christian ministers carefully avoid preaching anything from the Gospel of John. They practically deny their Savior to please His enemies. So, our children, who cannot hear the name of our God in school, often cannot hear it in their churches either. The evil of which God warned us has come upon us.
      
        How are Satan's children able to do this? By a great MASQUERADE, in which they pretend to be God's children and have corrupted most of our clergymen until these no longer tell us who WE are. We received warning of this also, if we would only heed it.

        In II Corinthians 11:1315, where it says,

        "Such men are sham apostles, dishonest workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ."

        No wonder, as even Satan himself masquerades as a shining angel. So it is nothing strange if his servants also masquerade as servants of uprightness. But, their doom will fit their actions.

        So we are told by them that these people are God's chosen, that they must be helped to invade and steal other people's land and that our own institutions must be changed so as not to offend them and that our churches must abandon Him in order to have fellowship with them. But God warned us NOT TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH DEVILS.
      
        All masquerades must reach an end and this one is almost finished. It has nearly succeeded in bringing us to destruction. But God will save us because we are HIS CHILDREN.

        Though most of us have forgotten our identity, He has not forgotten. Masks will be removed and our true identity revealed. In Isaiah 51:12, God has told us,

        "Hearken to Me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock from whence ye are hewn and to the hole of the pit from whence ye are digged. LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER AND UNTO SARAH THAT BORE YOU."

        That is, look to your ancestry, recognize that you are Israel, God's children. STOP MASQUERADING AS GENTILES. Tear the mask off Satan's children who masquerade as you.

        Joel 3:17:

        “So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no STRANGERS pass through her any more.”

PILGRIMS, STRANGERS AND ISRAEL By: Arnold Kennedy.

In the Old Testament there are Scriptures that certainly look as if they are saying that non-Israelite strangers could become circumcised, keep the Passover, the Laws of Moses and thus become as one born in the land. This is the matter which is being questioned. The immediate necessity is to look at the word stranger and similar words like foreigner, sojourner and alien. In both the Hebrew of the Old Testament and the Greek of the New Testament there are many different words loosely translated as strangers, foreigners and servants, etc and this is the problem. Our translators [this includes the NIV] have had no system of consistent rendering of any of these words. That there are strangers who are Israelites and strangers who are not Israelites, is very obvious.

 

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT there are eight words which are translated as stranger, strangers, foreigner, sojourners or aliens and some clarification is necessary. Without this clarification we have translations which make the Bible appear contradictory and inconsistent.

 

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT there are ten words which are variously translated, so that it is clear that each word in the original has a different meaning. Some of the New Testament quotations are from Old Testament origins and therefore they show a close alliance between the two languages.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF STRANGERS?

The most commonly mis-understood word is ger, which is translated as "stranger(s)" 86 times out of the 92 times it occurs in the Old Testament. The meaning of this word might be summarised as being an Israelite who lives apart from the main body of Israel. That is, living among, or in the land, of other races. The important fact is that this stranger is an Israelite by race.

It is not hard to find instances where the translators have translated the same Hebrew word, in the same context, into two different English words. This makes immediate nonsense of those verses when taken as translated.

Following are the main Hebrew words translated stranger, foreigner, sojourner, etc. The comments include a summation of the meaning of the key terms and the status of the people covered by those terms in the eyes of the Law. The summations are based on usage of the word in Scripture, as shown throughout this chapter. The words are:

 

H4033 maguwr (noun) from 1481 in the sense of lodging; a temporary abode; by extens. a permanent residence: - dwelling, pilgrimage, where sojourn, be a stranger. For example: Gen 17:8, the land wherein thou art a stranger. It is used of the places where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob dwelled in their travels or pilgrimage. We can use the term dweller.

H1616 ger (noun) a guest; by impl. a foreigner: alien, sojourner. For example, Gen 15:13, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs. A person of one’s own blood or race who is visiting in the district and is not known to the residents of the area. Israelites who were not present at the covenant sanctification ceremony in Mount Sinai (such as the descendants of Judah’s son, Zerah). Moses named his son, Gershom, because he was visiting from Egypt and Canaan (as opposed to being an exile). The gerim have equal rights before the law and can accumulate wealth in Israel. We can use the term kinsman-visitor (to show the genetic connection).

 

H2114 zuwr (verb - used as a participle with the force of a noun) to turn aside (espec for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; spec. to commit adultery: (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, strange (-r, thing, woman). , land).

 

H8453 towshab (noun) from 3427For example, Num 16:40, … no stranger which is not of the seed of Israel. The basic thought is of non-acquaintance and non-relatedness. A complete alien; no racial connection. In our context, one who is not an Israelite, Shemite or Hebrew. This person has no rights or protection under the Law and be killed on sight if found near the Temple. We can use the term alien.

H5236 nekar (noun) from 5234. Foreign, or (concr) a foreigner, or (abstr.) heathendom: - alien, strange, stranger. For example, Gen 17:12, And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed (not of your own immediate family). Refers to what is foreign to a family, tribe, nation. Hence the son of a stranger refers to the son of a foreigner and these are half-caste Israelite (see Isa 56:3, Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree). In this context, we can use the term foreigner. (Compare Gen 35:2 which reads � put away gods, the foreigners which are in the midst of you � )

[Editor's note: as proof that Isaiah was being facetious here regarding Israelites who permitted nekar, whom God said to utterly destroy and make no covenants with,  into the congregation of the LORD, here are his final words on the subject:

Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

Isa 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Isa 56:12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.]

 

H5237 nokriy (adjective) from 5235. Strange, in a variety of degrees and applications (foreign, non-relative, adulterous, different, wonderful): alien, foreigner, outlandish, stranger. For example, Judges 19:12, And his master said unto him, We will not turn aside hither into the city of a stranger, that is not of the children of Israel; we will pass over to Gibeah. Compare with Ruth 2:10, Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger? - a foreign person with respect to Boaz and his people because Ruth had come from a different Israelite tribe.

Similarly, a strange woman as opposed to one’s wife referred to an adulteress. In our context it describes one who is not of Israel but is a Shemite or Hebrew versus an alien (zuwr). Harlots, in Israelite times, were typically not Israelite women, but were quite similar in appearance because they were in a broadly related genetic line. Thus it refers to Hebrew people with whom marriage is forbidden - Canaanites, Moabites, Ammonites, etc and with whom Israelites were always led away to other gods. These people had no rights or privileges in Israel. In this context, we can use the term foreign (one, person. A dweller, (but no outlandish); espec. (as distinguished from a native citizen and a temporary inmate or mere lodger) resident alien, foreigner, inhabitant, sojourner, stranger. For example, Lev 25:6, And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee. Compare 1 Ki 17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants (towshab) of Gilead, � The majority of the references are to a temporary, landless, wage earner, hence, not naturalised. In our context, the lowest order and, basically, had no rights other than access to the cities of refuge. The children of the towshab could be bought as a perpetual servants, without prospect of redemption, and could not hold any position of authority. In this context we can use the expression temporary resident.

 

Each of these terms apply their meanings according to their context and hence can be used of Israelites as well as other people. For example, Abraham described himself as a sojourner to the sons of Heth [Gen 23:4]. However, our interest is the use of these terms with reference to the status of non-Israelites within Israel. By way of example, let us look at one of the standard Scriptures used by universalists:

 

Exodus 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger [kinsman-visitor], or born in the land.

This verse makes perfect sense when we realise the stranger in this case is, in fact, an Israelite but not one who was present in Mount Sinai at the time of the formal covenant ceremonies. Compare this with:

 

Ex 12:43-49. And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the order of the passover. There shall be no stranger [the AV text is deficient here; the Hebrew reads: no son of a stranger - ben nekar - son of a foreigner; a half-caste] eat thereof: But every man’s servant [bondservant] [editor's note:  even though modern translators haven't yet figured it out, this word "ebed" #5650, actually means "slave", as a serveant is hired and a slave is "bought"] "ebedthat is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then he shall eat thereof. A foreigner [a foreign person] or a hired servant [H7916: a man at wages by the day or the year - Not the same as the bond servant, above] shall not eat thereof. In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house, neither shall ye break a bone thereof. All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. And when a stranger [kinsman-visitor] shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it, and he shall be as one born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger [kinsman-visitor] that sojourneth among you.

In the AV version of this quotation there are four categories of people mentioned in regard to the ordinance of the Passover and it looks as if the stranger mentioned as forbidden at the beginning of the verses is suddenly allowed to partake at the end of the verses. However, the translations do not reveal that there is a fifth category, the kinsman-visitor, who is the one is allowed to partake if the males of his family are circumcised.

Let us look at some of the variations in the English translations of these verses:

  1. The NIV calls the first stranger an alien, and the second one a temporary resident which is not correct – the half-caste is not an alien and the kinsman-visitor is not the same as an alien who is temporarily living in the country.
  2. The RSV calls the first a foreigner and the second a stranger – the first one is wrong and the second one is only partly right; the kinsman-visitor is a stranger, but it does not reveal the racial connection that is present in the Hebrew word.
  3. The Living Bible actually calls the second pair of strangers "foreigners" which is so far off the mark that it is completely mis-leading.

 

 

The sincerity of the translators is not the issue here, but there are important implications for how we view the New Testament verses on similar subjects. In the New Testament we still have pilgrims and strangers, aliens and foreigners. We have been taught or have presumed certain things about these words, but the right teachings are, in fact, the same as are presented in the Old Testament. The New Testament is based on the Old Testament and it is written [in the Old Testament].

 

If certain of the "strangers" in the Old Testament were Israelites by race, might not certain of these strangers still be Israelites by race in the New Testament?

STRANGERS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

In the New Testament we also find a variety of words translated as "strangers", "foreigners" "aliens" and "pilgrims". As the translators did not understand the differences between the different terms for strangers in the Old Testament, it should not surprise us to find the same confusion in the New Testament. There Greek words translated stranger, pilgrim or sojourner are allogenes, allotrios, apallotrioo, epidemeo, xenodocheo, xenos, parepidemos, paroikeo, paroikia, paroikos and philonexia. With reference to Strong, Thayer and Vine, the words that are relevant to this chapter are:

 

G245 allotrios (adjective) from G243; another’s, that is, not one’s own: by extens. foreign, not akin, hostile - alien, (an-) other (man’s men’s) strange(-r). Belonging to another (opposite of idios - one’s own); foreign, strange; hence not of one's own group, family, nation, kingdom; an alien, an enemy. Matt 17:25, Heb 11:34.This is the equivalent of the Hebrew nekar. We can use the term foreigner.

 

G526 apallotrioo (verb) apo (from) plus allotrios. to estrange away, that is (pass. and fig.) to be non-participant: alienate, be alien. To alienate, estrange; to be shut out from one's fellowship and intimacy. To be rendered alien, to be alienated; the condition of unbelievers is presented in a threefold state of alienation (a) from the commonwealth of Israel (b) from the love of God (c) from God Himself. Hence, to be shut out from one’s group. Eph 2:12. There is no obvious equivalent for this word in the Hebrew terms above. We can use the term estranged.

 

G1927 epidemeo (verb - used only twice; participle) to make oneself at home, that is, (by extens.) to reside (in a foreign country): - [be] dwelling (which were) there, stranger. To be present among one's people, in one's city or one's native land; to be a sojourner; of a foreign resident, among any people, in any country. Acts 2:10. This is the participle equivalent of the Hebrew ger. We can use the term visiting.

G3581 xenos (adjective) foreign (lit. alien, or fig. novel); by impl. a guest or (vice-versa) entertainer: - host, strange(r). A foreigner, a stranger; alien (from a person or a thing); without the knowledge of, without a share in; new, unheard of; one who receives and entertains another hospitably; with whom he stays or lodges, a host. Strange; denotes a stranger in the sense of an unknown person of the same group (such as people of the same race). Matt 27:7, Acts 2:10, 17:21, Eph 2:19, Heb 11:13. There is no equivalent for this word in the Hebrew terms above. We can use the term stranger.

 

G3927 parepidemos (adjective used as noun - para: from; expressing a contrary condition; epidemeo: to sojourn and demos: a people) from 8344 and the base of 1927. An alien alongside, that is, a resident foreigner: - pilgrim, stranger. One who comes from a foreign country into a city or land to reside there by the side of the natives; a stranger; sojourning in a strange place, a foreigner; in the NT metaph. in reference to heaven as the native country, one who sojourns on earth. Sojourning in a strange place away from one’s own people. Used of those to whom Heaven is their own country and who are sojourners on Earth. Denotes a sojourner, an exile; used of OT saints.  1 Peter 1:1. As this term is related to epidemeo above, it is the equivalent of the Hebrew ger. We will use the term visitor.

 

G3940 paroikia (noun) See paroikos. Foreign residence: -- sojourning, as strangers. A dwelling near or with one; a sojourning, dwelling in a strange land; metaph. the life of a man here on earth is likened to a sojourning. This is the equivalent of the Hebrew towshab. We will use the term temporary resident.

 

G3941 paroikos (adjective) having a home near, that is, (as noun) a by-dweller (alien resident): foreigner, sojourn, stranger. Dwelling near, neighbouring; in the NT, a stranger, a foreigner, one who lives in a place without the right of citizenship; metaph. without citizenship in God's kingdom; one who lives on earth as a stranger, a sojourner on the earth; of Christians whose home is in heaven. One who dwells in a place.  1 Peter 2:11 - as sojourners (paroikous) and aliens (parepidemous). This is the equivalent of the Hebrew towshab. We can use the term temporary resident.

 

The New Testament, therefore, has a similar variety of words as has the Old Testament in this area, so we can no longer presume that all strangers and foreigners [as translated] are non-Israelites. Comparisons must be made from the Old Testament foundation in the Law, the Psalms and the Prophets.

There is a certain relationship conveyed by one pair of words used in the Old Testament which always compares with the same sentiment conveyed by a similar pairing of words in the New Testament. These New Testament phrases are derived from the Old Testament, so there is a link between them.

 

Ps 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry, hold not Thy peace at my tears, for I am a STRANGER [ger: kinsman-visitor] with thee, and a SOJOURNER [towshab: temporary resident], as all my fathers were.

Gen 23:4 I am a STRANGER [ger: kinsman-visitor] and a SOJOURNER [towshab: temporary resident] with you.

Lev 25:23 For ye [are] STRANGERS [ger: kinsman-visitor] and SOJOURNERS [towshab: temporary resident] with me.

1 Chron 29:15 We are STRANGERS [ger: kinsman-visitor] before thee and SOJOURNERS [towshab: temporary resident]

 

1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech, as STRANGERS [paroikos: temporary resident] and PILGRIMS [parepidemos: visitors].

Heb 11:13 These all died in faith … and confessed that they were PILGRIMS [xenos: stranger] and STRANGERS [parepidemos: visitors] on the earth.

Eph 2:12 Being ALIENS [apallotrioo: estranged] from the Commonwealth of Israel, and STRANGERS [xenos: stranger] from the covenants of promises.

Eph 2:19 Now therefore, ye are no more STRANGERS [xenos: strangers] and FOREIGNERS [paroikas: temporary residents] but fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God.

 

Here we have a selection of Scriptures from both Testaments in which there are parallel words. In the Old Testament references, the paired words are ger and towshab in each case. While both terms are used to define race, it is essential to determine the context in which they are used to verify which race is under discussion.

In Hebrews 11:13 the pilgrims and strangers are Israelites because the book is written to the Hebrews; those whose Fathers had been given the Law of Moses. In the other New Testament verses, it is not clear, at first glance, that they are Israelites. But, when we examine the Greek, we find similar terms - ones that identify Israelites in each context. And it is easy to verify that each reference is, indeed, to Israelites. These paired words do not teach that there are two groups of peoples, but rather that they all are Israelites in two different situations. When David said that he was a stranger and a sojourner [Ps 39:12], he was one person who was two things. Strangers and aliens are not necessarily two completely dissimilar groups of people in Ephesians 2:12 and Ephesians 2:19. In this case they are one group of people who are two things. This follows exactly the same pattern as presented in the Old Testament.

When we compare what David is saying in Psalm 39:12 with what Peter is saying in 1 Peter 2:11, we find a common distinction. David refers to all my Fathers who were, of course, Israelites. Peter is addressing the Elect and not others. This book of Peter is written to strangers [parepidemos: visitors] scattered. Note this well; there is no way around it! This cannot be spiritualised to make it refer to some non-Israelite multi-racial church! Both David and Peter are saying they have no kinship with the races among whom they (Israel) are temporarily living (that is, for the duration of their lives). We find a remarkable affinity and agreement between both Testaments. In both, Israel is totally exclusive. It is now even more difficult to insist that these so-called "gentiles" are non-Israelites!

Before we leave this subject of strangers, let us consider another very significant Scripture.

John 7:35 � will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles [Hellenes: Greeks] reeks and teach the Gentiles [Hellenes: Greeks].

As we know, the dispersed among the Greeks relates to the Lost sheep of the House of Israel whom Jesus says He came for only [Matt 10:6 and 15:24]. Those lost sheep were the only ones the disciples were instructed to visit. Come now and let us reason together. Could the disciples go to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom to a race they could not find because they were lost? They were not so lost that they could not be found, were they? [Lost, in this context, has to do with Israelites put aside for punishment].

To read the parables of Jesus in the light that these lost sheep are the House of Israel is enlightening! The lost sheep are never non-Israelites! When we come to the regathering of those "strangers" who are scattered, how could it ever be a regathering of any other than that exclusive race of Israel who were scattered in the first place?

When we look again at the 1 Peter 2:9 we find these particular strangers [of 1 Peter 1:1] were:

  1. Chosen … [Isaiah 41:8 … Jacob whom I have chosen]
  2. A Royal Priesthood … [Isaiah 61:1 , Hosea 4:6 etc.]
  3. An Holy Nation … [Deut 14:2]
  4. Please note that "nation" is singular in this context Some may still wish to deny these "holy" (set-apart) people still exist as being different from all other nations. But Peter knew they still existed when he wrote to them.

  5. A peculiar people [Exodus 19:5 , Deut 26:18 , Psalm 135:4]

Israel and Judah were taken into their respective captivities because of their continued disobedience under the Law. Following the captivities these people moved away from Palestine because God had caste them out of that land. On top of being scattered, they also lost all knowledge of their law, which means they lost the rituals for reconciliation with God. They were lost as members of the eternal Kingdom of God. However, as a nation of people they did not cease to exist (Jer 31:36,37 and Jer 33:17). Jesus came for these people because, by making the ultimate sacrifice, they no longer needed the Levitical Law as the means of reconciliation with God. They could "go direct" by prayer in Jesus name, because He is now the Mediator for the individual Israelite. It was still limited to Israelites because:

    1. Only they had broken the Law.
    2. Only they had the indwelling spirit that needed to saved from eternal death.

      [Editor's note:  there are some good points here, but this presumption that Israelites "no longer needed the Levitical Law" is based on a misunderstanding of the word "pleroo", which means "fully preach" rather than "fulfilled" in the sense that judeochristians take it to mean.]

The physical location of the Dispersed Tribes was well known up to the time of the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. After that, with no Temple in Jerusalem as a focus for ceremony for those who wished to make the journey, the whereabouts of these people was forgotten over time. Nevertheless, the existence of the sun, the moon and the stars says the nation of people still exists today. The words of Jeremiah’s prophecy are quite definite and cannot possibly apply to a "church".

As a separate matter of prophecy, the nation of Israel would always have a monarchy ruling over them, from the site of the official throne. This is sometimes confused with 1 Peter 2:13 which refers to the people respecting the authority of the King. This is a different matter – the teaching throughout the New Testament, even for the Judeans, is to obey the civilian authorities of the day, (render unto Caesar, etc), and not to foment social upheaval. This directs us to stand up for what is right when formal opportunities and mechanisms are available, but not to incite social unrest by going outside the formal system.

[Editor's note:  when Jesus was asked if we can serve two masters, His response was to ask for an image of Caesar.  When His Disciples brought Him a Roman coin with an image of Caesar on it, His reply was:

Mat 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

His point was that Only the coins belong to Caesar, and all else belongs to God].

When we go to the book of Hebrews and consider these pilgrims and strangers, the Fathers and the "Patriarchs" are prominent. God who spoke to these Fathers by the Prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son. We can pretend all we like that the children are now spiritual children, but the Bible still insists that the New Testament is only made with the House of Israel and the House of Judah [Heb 8:8]. How would these Houses be spiritualised? The quoted prophecies are those made to Israel! Israel is still just as exclusive, today!!

[Editor's note:  Jesus excluded the House of Judah from His mission when He commanded His Disciples to go only to the House of Israel].

From Jerry Rutledge


    I am sorry that I have omitted certain things in my writings, which things I had presumed that many of your readers would be familiar with.    However, I should have gone into more detail to clarify the matter, which I shall endeavor to do now:

 

    First, my usage of the word "Temple" instead of "Tabernacle" was close but was not technically correct. During the time of David, Israel still used the Tabernacle.  David was not allowed to build the Temple because he was a man of war, or a bloody man, therefore, it fell to his son, Solomon to build the Temple.   The more permanent Temple replaced the temporary and portable Tabernacle, but in most ways, the Temple was inferior, as the Tabernacle was modeled after the real Tabernacle which was in Heaven, which God showed to Moses while he was on the mount.  In it was portrayed a type of Christ. Please forgive my technical error.

 

    Now for the matter at hand, please look at the following scripture:

 

7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them through their generations.

 

8 And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

 

9 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the Lord; even that man shall be cut off from among his people.

Leviticus 17: 7-9 

Editor's note: "strangers which sojourn" is translated from "ger asher gur", "whatsoever man" is translated from "Ish Ish", "there be" was added by the translators, and "among his people" was translated from "min am".  Where "gur" is translated as "sojourn" here, it's also translated as "sojourners" and "strangers" by the KJV, suggesting that it could possibly be a noun rather than a verb.  The word "min" is usually translated as "than" or "rather than".   In this context, the word "am" refers to the house of Israel.

Lev 17:8 And thou shalt say559 unto413 them, Whatsoever man376, 376 there be of the house4480, 1004 of Israel,3478 or of4480 the strangers1616 which834 sojourn1481 among8432 you, that834 offereth5927 a burnt offering5930 or176 sacrifice,2077

Lev 17:9 And bringeth935 it not3808 unto413 the door6607 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 to offer6213 it unto the LORD;3068 even that1931 man376 shall be cut off3772 from among his people.4480, 5971

Lev 17:8 And thou shalt say unto them, Ish Ish rather than the house of Israel, or rather than the ger which gur among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

Lev 17:9 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the LORD; even that Ish shall be cut off rather than [the] people [of the house of Israel].



    Please note in the above scriptures are two categories of people who had to bring an offering to the door of the Tabernacle or be "cut off" from the people  for refusing to do so (put to death for blasphemy):

 

   The first category is the children of Israel, that is to say, the direct descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  These people are racial Israelites, and therefore part of the body politic which is exclusively makes up the “Congregation of Israel,” omitting all other races.   

 

   The second category is "strangers which sojourn among you.”    These are all the other people who might be residing in the land (note: reside, not domicile) who are not racial Israelites.

 

   That was the law of the land.   Israelite or stranger / sojourner, if you committed sin, which defiles the land, you had to go to the door of the Tabernacle with a sacrifice for sin, or else.  Period...

 

   By carefully paying close attention to the absolute fact that there were two categories only: Israelites and non-Israelites, one can then understand that in Scripture, only Israelites (living in Israel or elsewhere) were part of the Congregation, part of the body politic.  For example Saul of Tarsus, later the Apostle Paul, lived in Tarsus, but was still considered an Israelite.  One may equally understand that “Strangers/Sojourners”   (non-Israelites) are not of the race, of the Congregation, nor of the body politic, nor will they ever be for their entire lives, and it matters not whether they live in the land of Israel or not.   The thing that is demanded of both groups (or else)   is that if they are in the land of Israel, they had to make the offerings.   That was the law of the land, lest the land be defiled, such as for the shedding of innocent blood which defiles a land under the laws of God.

 

    I also failed to specify that the foreigners brought their sin offering to the door of the Tabernacle and later to the door of the Temple, never went into the Holy Place, nor into the Holy of Holies.  Only a pure blood Israelite, and only of the Tribe of Levi, where the priests came from could go in to the Holy Place or the Holy of Holies.   Remember the Israelite King that was punished for offering his own offering on the alter?  How much more would God punish a stranger?

 

   Concerning the Tabernacle, it had three parts, the Outer Court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.  Each part had its own door, two were curtains (for the Outer Court, and the Holy Place ) and a thick veil was used for a door to the Holy of Holies. 

  

   The Outer Court held the Brazen Alter and the Laver, also of brass, for ceremonial cleansing.  It also contained the Tabernacle proper.  

 

   The Tabernacle proper contained the Holy Place and on the opposite side of a thick veil it contained the Holy of Holies.

 

     The Holy Place held the “Lamp Stand,” the “Alter of Incense” and the “Table of Show Bread”. 

 

   The Holy of Holies contained the “Ark of the Covenant.”

 

  Now if a Priest (Israelite) sins, or if the Congregation sins (whole people/ body politic), or is a Ruler sins (Israelite), or a singular person sins (Israelite or Stranger), the sacrifice is made but the Priest puts the blood upon the horns of the brazen alter.

 

    Again, it is racial.  Either Israelites only (Congregation of the Lord / body politic), or strangers, sojourners (Not a racial Israelite).   A sin offering must be made, even by foreigners. 

 

    And as an aside, a daughter of a priest had a right to eat of the show bread, but if she married someone of another race, (one of those strangers sojourning in the land) she lost that blessing, which is part of her heritage…

 

 DESCENT.   Hereditary succession. Succession to the ownership of an estate by inheritance, or by any act of law, as distinguished from “purchase”

Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Ed. (1910).

 

�  34.  Unlawful marriage causes damage to hereditary descendants.

12 And if the priest’s daughter be married unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.

Lev. 22: 12.

 

Editor's note: "stranger" is translated from "Ish zur"

Lev 22:12 If3588 the priest's3548 daughter1323 also be1961 married unto a stranger,376, 2114

 



*Notice that in the Laws of God, inter-racial marriage would cause the priest’s daughter to lose certain hereditary blessings.

 

    Enough said.  End of Rant…

 

Thanks for enduring…
