Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בְּרִיחַ pl. בְּרִיחִים m.

(1) a cross-beam, a bar, which was passed from one side to the other through the rings of the several boards of the holy tabernacle, which were thus held together; it is so called from passing through or across, like transtrum for transitrum, Exodus 26:26, seq.; 35:11 36:31, seq.; Numbers 3:36, 4:31.

(2) a bolt, a bar, for shutting a door, Judges 16:3; Nehemiah 3:3, seq. etc. “The bars of the earth,” Jonah 2:7, are the bars of the door, in the depths of the earth, i.e. the entrance to Hades, i.q. בַּדֵּי שִׁאוֹל Job 17:16. Metaph. a bar is used for a prince, inasmuch as he defends a state (see בַּד Hosea 11:6); Isaiah 15:5, בְּרִיחֶיהָ עַד צֹעַר “her princes (flee) to Zoar.” Jerome vectes ejus. Perhaps the ellipsis of the verb, to flee, is too harsh, especially when there has been no previous mention of flight; and I would rather render with Ch., Saadiah, Kimchi, בריחיה fugitives, whether it be better to read בָּרִיחֶיהָ or to derive בְּרִיהֶיהָ from בָּרִיחַ with Kametz pure (of the form עָשִׁיר).
