כְּפִיר m.

(1)  a young lion, already weaned and having begun to ravin; (גּוּר is the whelp of a lion). See Ezekiel 19:2, Ezekiel 19:3, “(the lioness) brought up one of her whelps (אֶחָד מִגּוּרֶיהָ), he became a young lion (כְּפִיר), he learned to ravin, and he devoured men,” Psalms 17:12, 104:21 Judges 14:5 and often elsewhere. Figuratively applied

(a) to cruel and blood-thirsty enemies, Psalms 34:11, 35:17 58:7 comp. Jeremiah 2:15; Ezekiel 32:2, כְּפִיר גּוֹיִם “an enemy devastating the nations.”

(b) to the princes of a state, Ezekiel 38:13, compare Nah. 2:14. (To this answers غِفْرُ and غَفِرُ a calf, kid of the wild goat, also young lion, prop. hairy, covered with hair, from the root כָּפַר No. 3; Arab. غفر to be hairy, shaggy; comp. עֹפֶר.)

[(2) “i.q. כָּפָר. Nehemiah 6:2, a village.”]
