<1,,4339,proselutos> akin to proserchomai, "to come to," primarily signifies "one who has arrived, a stranger;" in the NT it is used of converts to Judaism, or foreign converts to the Jewish religion, Matt. 23:15; Acts 2:10; 6:5; 13:43. There seems to be no connection necessarily with Palestine, for in Acts 2:10; 13:43 it is used of those who lived abroad. Cp. the Sept., e.g., in Exod. 22:21; 23:9; Deut. 10:19, of the "stranger" living among the children of Israel.
