Fellow besides its contemptuous use (as a rendering of אַישׁ a man, etc.), and its frequent employment (usually as a rendering of רֵעִ, a friend or equal), in the sense of companion, stands in one remarkable passage (Zec 13:7) as the rendering of עָמַית, society, in the phrase גֶּבֶר עֲמַיתַי, man of my association, i.e. my associate; corresponding with רֹעַי my shepherd in the parallel member, and referred to himself by our Saviour (Mt 26:31) as the great Pastor and Sacrifice for his people; not so much in the sense of simple equality of nature with the Father, as of-copartnership with him in the great work of caring for and redeeming mankind. SEE NEIGHBOR.
