kin'-dred: Several words are rendered "kindred" in the King James Version. 'ach, "brother," was used loosely among Hebrews for a member of the same tribe or family, a relative; and is once translated "kindred" (1 Chronicles 12:29 the King James Version). Once also somewhat loosely as the translation of modha`ath, literally, "acquaintance" (Ruth 3:2; compare same root in 2:1, rendered "kinsman"); once, for the, figurative expression, "men of thy redemption" (ge'ullah, referring to the law of the redemption of land by kinsmen, Leviticus 25:25). The two most common words for kindred are: (1) moledheth, "related by birth" (Genesis 12:1; Genesis 24:4, 7; 31:3, 13; 32:09:00; 43:7 Numbers 10:30 Esther 2:10, 20; Esther 8:6); (2) mishpachah, "family" (Genesis 24:38, 40, 41 Joshua 6:23 Ruth 2:3 1 Chronicles 16:28 Job 32:2 Psalm 22:27; Psalm 96:7).

In the New Testament (several times), genos, "kindred by birth," so, of same family, tribe or race (Acts 4:6; Acts 7:13, 19 the Revised Version (British and American) "race"); so also suggeneia (Luke 1:61 Acts 7:3, 14). In the King James Version phule, "tribe," rendered "kindred" (Revelation 1:7; Revelation 5:9; Revelation 7:9; Revelation 11:9; Revelation 13:7; 14:6), but better "tribe" as in the Revised Version (British and American). patria, rendered "kindred" in Acts 3:25, is better "families," as in the Revised Version (British and American).
