חָרַר (1) to burn. (Arab. حَرَّ to be warm, to glow; Eth. ሐረረ፡ to be hot. The signification of burning is found in the stock חר, comp. חָרָה, חָרַךְ, חָרַל, حرق, Lat. areo, uro, and Germ. har, hhr, fire; Heerd, harften, to roast. The primary idea is that of the shrivelled roughness of things that are dried or scorched; compare חָרַס, חָרַב). Used of hot metal, Ezekiel 24:11 of bones which have been dried up with heat, Job 30:30 of men destroyed by heat, Isaiah 24:6.
(2) i.q. Arab. حَرَّ for حَرِرَ born of a noble race, to be free, to be freeborn, whence حُرُّ, Heb. חֹר, חוֹר noble, freeborn, Syr. ܚܰܪܶܪ to set at liberty, ܚܺܙܪܐܳ free, freeborn. The primary idea appears to be that of the brightness and purity of a man obscured by no stain.
