hom'-born ('ezrach):

A native-born Hebrew, as contrasted with a foreigner of different blood. The same Hebrew word is found in Leviticus 16:29; 18:26 and elsewhere, but is translated differently. Home-born in Jeremiah 2:14 is a translation of the phrase yelidh bayith, where it means a person free-born as contrasted with a slave.
