Dark-skinned, the second son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13 ).

It is the name for the nomadic tribes of Arabs, the Bedouins generally (Isaiah 21:16 ; 42:11 ; 60:7 ; Jeremiah 2:10 ; Ezekiel 27:21 ), who dwelt in the north-west of Arabia. They lived in black hair-tents (Song of Solomon 1:5 ). To "dwell in the tents of Kedar" was to be cut off from the worship of the true God (Psalm 120:5 ). The Kedarites suffered at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 49:28,29 ).
