To sojourn signified to be instructed; and therefore a sojourner signified those who suffered themselves to be instructed in the statutes and doctrinal things. To sojourn and a sojourner have this signification, (AR 1463, 2025, 3672). In the same:--
If a sojourner shall sojourn with you who shall have made a fire-offering of an odor of rest unto Jehovah, as ye do, so he shall do: as to the assembly, there is one statute for you and for the sojourner that sojourneth, a statute of eternity for your generations as ye are, so is the sojourner before Jehovah; one law and one judgment shall be for you and for the sojourner that sojourneth with you (Num. 15:14-16).
As the native of you shall be the sojourner that sojourneth with you (Lev. 19:34).
One judgment shall there be for you, such as is for the sojourner, such shall be for the native (Lev. 24:22).
