Bar, a Hebrew word meaning son, but used only poetically in that language (Psalms 2:12; Proverbs 31:2). In Syriac, however, Bar answered to the more common Hebrew word for son, i.e. ben; and hence in later times, in the New Testament, it takes the same place in the formation of proper names which Ben had formerly occupied in the Old Testament.
