1480) rs (סהר ShR) AC: Tie CO: Cord AB: ?: The pictograph s is a picture of the teeth representing pressure, the r is a picture of the head representing the top or beginning. Combined these mean "press the beginning". Ropes and cords were usually made of bark strips such as from the cedar or from the sinew (tendon) of an animal. The rope is made by twisting two fibers together. A single fiber is attached to a fixed point (top) , and the two ends of the fiber are brought together. One fiber is twisted in a clockwise direction and wrapped over the other fiber in counter clockwise direction. The second fiber is then twisted in clockwise direction then wrapped around the first fiber in a counter clockwise direction. The process is repeated through the length of the rope. The twisting of the fibers in opposite directions causes the fibers to lock (press) onto each other making a stronger rope. The rope is used to tightly secure or support something, such as a load to a cart or the poles of the tent.

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָשָׁר adj. f. יְשָׁרָה

(1)  straight. Ezekiel 1:7, 23 Ezekiel 1:23; Job 33:27, יָשָׁר הֱעֶוִיִתִי “I have made the straight crooked;” I have acted perversely. Figuratively יָשָׁר בְּעֵינַי that which is right in my eyes, i.e. what pleases me, what I approve. Judges 17:6, “every one did הַיָּשָׁר בְּעֵינָיו what was right in his own eyes,” what was pleasing to himself. Deuteronomy 12:25, 28 Deuteronomy 12:28, הַיָּשָׁר בְּעֵינֵי יְהֹוָה “that which is pleasing to God.” Followed by לִפְנִיִ id., Proverbs 14:12, 16:25. Often used of persons

(a) upright, righteous, Job 1:1, Job 1:8; Psalms 11:7. More fully expressed יִשְׁרֵי לֵב Psalms 7:11, and יִשְׁרֵי רֶ06ר֫֒ךְ 37:14. יְשָׁרִים κατʼ ἐξοχὴν, are the Jews, Daniel 11:17. סֵפֶר הַיָּשָׁר [the book of Jasher] the book of the upright, either sing. or collect. is an anthology of ancient poems, to which reference is twice made in the Old Test., Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18. (If it could be proved that יָשָׁר is also used of military valour, the title of that book might not be ill rendered the book of valour; comp. the name of the celebrated Arabic anthology, called حماسة i.e. valour.) Neutr. יָשָׁר uprightness, integrity, Psalms 37:37, 111:8.

(b) just, true, of God, and the word of God, Deuteronomy 32:4; Psalms 33:4, 119:137.

(2) even, used of a way, Jeremiah 31:9 hence דֶּרֶךְ יְשָׁרָה an even (unobstructed) way, i.e. fortunate, Ezra 8:21 יְשַׁר לֵב ready-minded, prompt for doing any thing; followed by a gerund, 2 Chronicles 29:34. Compare Arabic يَسَرَ to be ready, obsequious. Conj. III. to make oneself of easy access to any one.
