(1) a month, which amongst the Hebrews was lunar, (compare Germ. Wond and Wonat, Gr. μήνη and μήν, a month), i.q. חֹדֶשׁ, but a rarer word, and one used by the older writers (Exodus 2:2), and by poets (Deuteronomy 33:14; Job 3:6, 7:3 29:2 39:2 Zechariah 11:8); see however 1 Kings 6:37, 38 1 Kings 6:38, 8:2.
(2) [Jerah], a people and region of Arabia, of the race of the Joktanites, Genesis 10:26 Bochart (Phaleg. ii. 19) remarks, not unsuitably, that this name is Hebrew, but a translation from an Arabic name of the same signification. On this assumed ground he understands this people to be the Alilœi, living near the Red Sea in a district where gold is found (Agatharchides c. 49, Strabo xvi. p. 277); their true name he conjectures to have been بنى هلال children of the moon, so called from the worship of the moon, or Alilat (Herodot. iii. 8). As to a tribe bearing this name, near Mecca, see Niebuhr in Descr. of Arabia, p. 270. A more probable opinion, however, is that of J. D. Michaëlis in Spicileg. ii. p. 60, understanding this to be the coast of the moon (غبّ القمر) and the mountain of the moon (جبل القمر), near Hadramaut; for יֶרַח Gen. loc. cit. is joined with the country of Hadramaut.
