OUTCAST

Scripture never employs outcast in the now common sense of one rejected by society. Outcast rather designates one banished from court (2 Samuel 14:14 RSV) or more often dispersed persons, exiles, or refugees (Deuteronomy 30:4; Psalms 147:2: Isaiah 11:12; Isaiah 56:8; Jeremiah 30:17; Micah 4:6-7). Outcasts often has the technical sense of diaspora. NAS employs outcast for one excommunicated from the synagogue (John 16:2).
