Is sometimes used in a special sense, easily understood from the context. It usually denotes a foreigner, who is not a native of the land in which he resides, Genesis 23:4. The Mosaic Law enjoined a generous hospitality towards foreign residents, saying, "Thou shalt love him as thyself," Leviticus 19:33,34 Deuteronomy 10:18,19 24:17 27:19. They were subject to the law, Exodus 20:10 Leviticus 16:20, and were admitted to many of the privileges of the chosen people of God, Numbers 9:14 15:14.

The strangers whom David collected to aid in building the temple, 1 Chronicles 22:2, probably comprised many of the remnants of the Canaanite tribes, 1 Kings 9:20,21. Hospitality to strangers, including all travellers, was the duty of all good citizens, Job 31:32 Hebrews 13:2.
