Pilgrimage

PILGRIMAGE (Heb. māghôr, a place of sojourning, or the act of sojourning; see Exod.6.4, niv “lived as aliens;” Ps.119.54). In Gen.47.9 a lifetime is meant. The Hebrew root ghûr means “to dwell as a foreigner, newly come into a land in which he has no citizens’ rights, such as the original inhabitants possess.” The biblical usage, whether the word is translated “pilgrimage” or otherwise, began with the wanderings of Abraham and his descendants, and later was applied to the status of a believer in the one true God, living on an earth unfriendly to God and to his people.
