1. (v. i.) To meddle with the affairs of others; to meddle officiously; to interpose or interfere improperly; to mix or meddle with.

2. (v. t.) To intermix; to mingle.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

in-ter-med'-'-l (`arabh, "to mix up (self) with something," "mingle in," "share," "take interest in"): The word occurs only once (Proverbs 14:10) in a passage descriptive of "the ultimate solitude of each man's soul at all times." "The heart knoweth its own bitterness."

"Nor even the tenderest heart, and next our own, Knows half the reasons why we smile and sigh."

(Compare 1 Kings 8:38.) Something there is in every sorrow which no one else can share. "And a stranger doth not intermeddle with its joy," not necessarily in an interfering or any offensive way, but simply does not share or take any interest in the other's joy.

For "intermeddleth with" (Proverbs 18:1 the King James Version), the Revised Version (British and American) gives "rageth against" (margin "quarrelleth with").
