'Acquaintance' in the Bible
let the priests take it, every man of his acquaintance; and let them repair the breaches of the house, wherever any breach is found.
He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are quite estranged from me.
And all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, came to him, and they ate bread with him in his house, and they condoled with him, and comforted him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him; and every one gave him a piece of money, and every one a golden ring.
More than to all mine oppressors, I am become exceedingly a reproach, even to my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that see me without flee from me.
