Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יַעַר [with suff. יַעְרוֹ] masc.

(1)  redundancy of honey; honey spontaneously and freely flowing from the combs, which was called by the Greeks and Romans ἄκητον μέλι, mel acetum (Plin. N. H. xv. 11), Song of Solomon 5:1 more fully יַעְרַת הַדְּבַשׁ 1 Samuel 14:27. Some have carelessly and inaccurately rendered this favus mellis, meaning the cells of wax, the comb in which the honey is contained, and out of which the purest honey oozes, (see Ovid, Fast., iv. 152, expressis mella liquata favis). It is rather i.q. נֹפֶת צוּפִים the dropping of honey combs, the German Honigfeim, Psalms 19:11. This very German word, of frequent occurrence in Luther’s translation of the Bible, is erroneously explained by some to mean the honey-comb (Honigzelle, Honigfcheibe), while it rather signifies liquid honey, as if saliva mellis (Seim, i.q. Schleim, saliva).

(2) a thicket of trees, so called from the luxuriant growth of trees and shrubs, see the root (Syr. ܝܰܥܪܐܳ thicket of briers, Arab. وَعْرُ rugged place, whence the verb وعر to be rugged, difficult of passage, spoken of a region), Isaiah 21:13; Ezekiel 21:2, Ezekiel 21:3 hence any wood or forest, Deuteronomy 19:5; Joshua 17:15, 18 Joshua 17:18. בֵּית הַיַּעַר the house of the forest, Isaiah 22:8 fully הַלְּבָנוֹן בֵּית יַעַר the house of the forest of Lebanon, 1 Kings 7:2, 10:17 it was the armoury of king Solomon, elsewhere (Nehemiah 3:19) called נֶשֶׁק, its name arose from the cedar wood, of which it was built. Used of a rugged rough country (see Syr.), Hosea 2:14. Metaph. of a troop of enemies, Isaiah 32:19 comp. 10:18, 19 Isaiah 10:19, 34 Isaiah 10:34.

(3) pr.n. probably i.q. קִרְיַת יְעָרִים Psalms 132:6.
