FELLOW . This Eng. word is used in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] with the meaning either of (1) companion, or (2) of person. Thus (1) Psalms 45:7 ‘God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows’; (2) Matthew 26:71 ‘This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘man’; there is no word in the Gr.). Cf. Tindale’s trans. of Genesis 39:2 ‘And the Lorde was with Joseph, and he was a luckie fellowe.’ Although the word when used in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] for person may have a touch of disparagement, nowhere is it used to express strong contempt as now.
