    set aside, put aside

    1. We should set aside our differences.
    2. His sisters set him aside and took the whole heritage of his father.

    Also another interesting verb would be the word supplant.
    E.g. "domestic production has been supplanted by imports and jobs have been lost"
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    Мы должны отбросить/отринуть/отложить в сторону наши разногласия.

    2. His sisters set him aside and took the whole heritage of his father.
    Его сестра отодвинула его [в сторону - optional] и забрала всё наследство его отца [себе - optional].

    Also another interesting verb would be the word supplant
    Вытеснять/замещать. Вытеснять sounds more "energic" and "agressive".
    Domestic production has been supplanted by imports and jobs have been lost = Отечественная продукция была вытеснена импортом, и рабочие места были потеряны.
