vag'-a-bond (nudh, "to wander"):
The word is used in the curse pronounced on Cain (Genesis 4:12,14). the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes in each case "wanderer," but in Psalms 109:10 it retains "vagabonds." "Vagabond Jews" (perierchomai; the Revised Version (British and American) "strolling Jews") were persons who traveled about as professional exorcists (Acts 19:13).
