fârz : Found only 5 times in the King James Version (Ezekiel 27:12 , Ezekiel 27:14 , Ezekiel 27:16 , Ezekiel 27:19 , Ezekiel 27:27 ), apparently incorrect translation of עזּבון , ‛izzābhon , according to modern Hebraists (though Gesenius gives "fair" as one of its meanings). The Septuagint translates the Hebrew of the above five passages by two different words, ἀγορά , agorá , "market-place" (Ezekiel 27:12 , Ezekiel 27:14 , Ezekiel 27:16 , Ezekiel 27:19 ), and μισθός , misthós , "hire," "pay" (Ezekiel 27:27 , Ezekiel 27:33 ). The King James Version follows the Wyclif version in Ezekiel 27:12 and the Geneva version throughout, although it properly translates "wares" in Ezekiel 27:33 . the Revised Version (British and American) gives "wares" (which see) throughout.
