Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

זַרְזִיר tied together, girded, from זָרַר (which see), the first radical being inserted in the last syllable, as in the word זַרְזִיף, once Proverbs 30:31, זַרְזִיר מָתְנַיִם “girt in the loins,” by which a war horse is meant, as ornamented about the loins with girths and buckles (such ornaments are very frequent in the sculptures at Persepolis), compare Bochart, Hieroz. t.i.p. 102. Schultens. ad h. l. Joh. Simonis understands it of a Zebra, or the wild ass of Abyssinia, as if so called from its skin being striped as if girded. Some of the Hebrew interpreters understand it to mean a greyhound [“others understand a wrestler, see Talm. Hieros. Taanith, fol. 57; Maurer ad h.l.”].
