Alien

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

  • Strangers dwelling in another country without being naturalized (Leviticus 22:10; Psalms 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.
