Kir

Additional Links

Kir. (fortress). Kir is mentioned by Amos, Amos 9:7, as the land from which the Syrians (Aramaeans) were once "brought up;" that is, apparently as the country where they had dwelt before migrating to the region north of Palestine. (A difference of opinion exists in regard to the position of Kir, since some suppose it to be identical with Carma, a city of Media, in the south, on the river Mardus; others place it in Armenia, on the river Kar. - Editor).
