RID; RIDDANCE

rid, rid'-ans: "Rid" originally meant "rescue" (the King James Version Genesis 37:22 Exodus 6:6 Psalm 82:4; Psalm 144:7, 11), whence the meaning "remove" or "clean out" (Leviticus 26:6 the King James Version, with "riddance" in Leviticus 23:22 Zephaniah 1:18). The word occurs in the American Standard Revised Version and in the English Revised Version in Exodus 6:6.
