Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 אֻרִים noun [masculine] plural region of light, East Isaiah 24:15 (so Ges MV Ew De Di RV; Lo Hi Kn Che read איים = coasts, so Cdd. ᵐ5; — ᵐ5 mostly omit ᵑ9 in doctrina, thinking of Urim, see Br MP 297).

אוּרִים noun masculine Urim (plural intensive, mostly with article the Urim, and mostly joined with תֻּמִּים q. v.) תֻּמֶּיךָוְאוּרֶיךָ לְאִישׁ הֲסִידֶךָ Deuteronomy 33:8 thy Thummim and thy Urim has the man of thy favour, i.e. the Levite tested at Massah & Meribah; הָאוּרִים וְהִתֻּמִּים were put into the חשֶׁן הִמִּשְׁמָּט of the high priest Exodus 28:30; Leviticus 8:8 (P); this חשֶׁן (q. v.) was a little bag or pouch worn on breast of high, priest, to hold the Urim & Thummim; the name הַמִּשְׁמָּט׳ח was given because of decisions made by that which was within it; thus, Eleazar was to inquire of ׳י for Joshua בְּמִשְׁמַּט הָאוּרִים Numbers 27:21 (P); Saul prayed הָבָה אוּרִים opposed to הבה תֻּמִּים, 1 Samuel 14:41 ᵐ5, so We Dr (ᵑ0 omits former, and reads תָּמִים in latter); ׳י did not answer Saul בָּאוּרִים or by dreams or prophets 1 Samuel 28:6; post-exilic Jews reserved difficult questions until there stood up a priest לְאוּרִים וּלְתֻמִּים Ezra 2:63; Nehemiah 7:65 (here alone without article) These passages give little information; ᵐ5 δήλωσις καὶ ἀλήθεια, ᵑ9 doctrina et veritas, Symm φωτισμοὶ καὶ τελεώτητες; Jos Ant. iii. 8. 9 thinks of the twelve gems of face of bag as giving decision by shining; Philo Vit. Mos. iii thinks of two small images (׳א & ׳ת), probably embroidered in the cloth of the bag, like oracle-images of Egypt (Diod1,48,75 Aelian Var. Hist.14,34); Ew Geschichte iii, 309; Antiq. 295, of two stones of different colours for sacred lot, on this see Dr 1 Samuel 14:41 where ᵐ5אוּרִים & תֻּמִּים as object of give, δος = הָבָה; compare הִמִּילוּ 1 Samuel 14:42, וַיִלָּכֵד 1 Samuel 14:41 (used of taking by lot 1 Samuel 10:20; Isaiah 7:14,16); see also We & RS OTJC Lect x. N 4; Bähr Symbolik, of one thing within bag, a sacred pledge to high priest of the enlightenment & perfection he would receive from ׳י when called to make sacred decisions; Ka Exodus 544 sees the sacred pledge in the twelve sacred gems themselves, that stimulate priest to self-sacrifice & perfect sanctification.
