fı̄rz : In Isaiah 24:15 the King James Version translates ארים , 'urı̄m ("lights," especially Urim in the phrase "Urim and Thummim") "fires." The Revised Version (British and American), understanding the word to mean the region of light, translates "east," which satisfies the context far better, and is adopted by many modern scholars. In Ezekiel 39:9 , Ezekiel 39:10 the Revised Version (British and American) has "fires"; in Ezekiel 39:9 "make fires" is a translation of a verb of different root; in Ezekiel 39:10 "fires" translates the common singular noun for fire.
