Abide someone vs Abide with someone

Abide someone
(negative) to dislike sb/sth so much that you hate having to be with or deal with them.

  • I can’t abide people with no sense of humour.

Abide with someone
(literary) remain or stay with a person.

  • If the American dream is to abide with us, it will, at bottom, depend on the people themselves.
