Seir (sç'ir). 1. Mount Seir, Genesis 14:6, or land of Seir, Genesis 32:3; Genesis 36:30, the mountainous region lying north of the eastern gulf of the Red Sea. Deuteronomy 2:1-8. The ragged appearance of the tract as viewed from the mountain generally recognized as Mount Hor, the central and highest peak, 4800 feet high, justifies its name. See Idumæa. 2. Mount Seir, Joshua 15:10, was a landmark on the northern boundary of Judah, between Kirjath-jearim and Bethshemesh.
