tn The word גֵּו (gev) is an Aramaic term meaning “midst,” indicating “midst [of society].” But there is also a Phoenician word that means “community” (DISO 48).

tn The form simply is the plural verb, but it means those who drove them from society.

tn The text merely says “as thieves,” but it obviously compares the poor to the thieves.
