The meaning of Alienate in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
al'-yen-at ('abhar; apallotrioo, "to estrange from"): In Old Testament, for the break between husband and wife caused by unfaithfulness to the marriage vow (Jeremiah 6:8; Ezekiel 23:17); also applied to the diversion of property (Ezekiel 48:14). In New Testament, spiritually, for the turning of the soul from God (Ephesians 2:12; Colossians 1:21). The Greek allotrios, which is the root of the verb, is the opposite of id-i-os, "one's own." The word implies a former state, whence the person or thing has departed, and that, generally, by deterioration.
