arar, aroer. These words are supposed to refer to the Arabic Arar, which is a juniper (the Juniperus sabina ). It grows on the rocks even to their summits in most sterile soil. It stands therefore as a fit emblem of the man who "maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord." Jeremiah 17:6 . Moab also, under the judgement of God, is compared to 'the heath in the wilderness.' Jeremiah 48:6 . The Juniperus communis is another species.
