1480) rs (סהר ShR) AC: Tie CO: Cord AB: ?: The pictograph s is a picture of the teeth representing pressure, the r is a picture of the head representing the top or beginning. Combined these mean "press the beginning". Ropes and cords were usually made of bark strips such as from the cedar or from the sinew (tendon) of an animal. The rope is made by twisting two fibers together. A single fiber is attached to a fixed point (top) , and the two ends of the fiber are brought together. One fiber is twisted in a clockwise direction and wrapped over the other fiber in counter clockwise direction. The second fiber is then twisted in clockwise direction then wrapped around the first fiber in a counter clockwise direction. The process is repeated through the length of the rope. The twisting of the fibers in opposite directions causes the fibers to lock (press) onto each other making a stronger rope. The rope is used to tightly secure or support something, such as a load to a cart or the poles of the tent.

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֶשֶׁר m. happiness, found only in plur. constr. אַשְׁרֵי, where it has the force of an interjection, as אַשְׁרֵי הָאִישׁ pr. O the happiness of the man, i.e. “O happy man!” Psal. 1:1 Psal. 2:12 Psal. 32:1, Psalms 32:2, 33:12. By an ellipsis of the relative we must understand the passage Psalms 65:5, אַשְׁרֵי תִבְחַר “happy (is he whom) thou choosest.” With Aff. אַשְׁרֶיךָ “happy (art) thou!” Deuteronomy 33:29. אַשְׁרֵיךְ (for אַשְׁרַיִךְ) Ecclesiastes 10:17 אַשְׁרָיו Proverbs 14:21, and אַשְׁרֵהוּ (for אַשְׁרֵיהוּ) Proverbs 29:18 אַשְׁרֵיכֶם Isaiah 32:20. As to the contracted plural of segolate nouns, such as אַשְׁרֶיךָ (for אֲשָׁרֶיךָ) see Lehrg. P. 575, 576, and indeed in this word the shorter form arises from its use in exclamation. So in German in announcing good news: biel Glück! In Greek and Latin, τριςμακάριος, τριςόλβιος, τριςευδαίμων, terque quaterque beatus.
