Sister

In the style of the Hebrews, "sister" had equal latitude with "brother." It is used, not only for a sister by natural relation, from the same father and mother, but also for a sister by the same father only, or by the same mother only; or for any near female relative, Genesis 12:13. See BROTHER.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A female who has the same parents with another person, or who has one of them only. In the latter case, she is more definitely called a half sister. The correlative of brother.

2. (n.) A woman who is closely allied to, or associated with, another person, as in the same faith, society, order, or community.

3. (n.) One of the same kind, or of the same condition; -- generally used adjectively; as, sister fruits.

4. (v. t.) To be sister to; to resemble closely.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
SISTER

sis'-ter ('achoth): Used repeatedly in the Old Testament of a female

(1) having the same parents as another; or

(2) having one parent in common, with another, half-sister (Genesis 20:12 Leviticus 18:9), and also

(3) of a female belonging to the same family or clan as another, so a kinswoman (Genesis 24:60 Job 42:11);

(4) also of a woman of the same country (Numbers 25:18).

(5) Figuratively, the two kingdoms, Israel and Judah, are sisters (Ezekiel 23:7).

(6) Confederate cities are conceived of as sisters (Ezekiel 16:45).

(7) 'Achoth is used of objects which go in pairs, as curtains, each `coupled to its sister' (Exodus 26:3, 6), and of wings in pairs (Ezekiel 1:9; Ezekiel 3:13);

(8) of virtues or conditions, with which one is closely related: "Say unto wisdom, thou art my sister" (Proverbs 7:4; compare Job 17:14);

(9) of a lover concerning his spouse, as a term of endearment (Songs 4:9; Songs 5:1; 8:8).

In the New Testament, adelphe, used

(1) in sense of physical or blood kinship (Matthew 12:50; Matthew 13:56; Matthew 19:29 Luke 10:39; Luke 14:26 John 11:1; 19:25 Acts 23:16);

(2) of fellow-members in Christ: "Phoebe, our sister" (Romans 16:1; see also 1 Corinthians 7:15 1 Timothy 5:1 James 2:15);

(3) possibly, of a church, "thy elect sister" (2 John 1:13).
