Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִבְצָר m. (from the root בָּצַר No. 2), [pl. ־ִ ים, once -וֹת Daniel 11:15 ].

(1) defence (of a city), fortress, Isaiah 25:12 hence used for a fortified city, i.q. עִיר בְּצוּרָה Isaiah 17:3; Habakkuk 1:10. The same is עִיר מִבְצָר, e.g. עִיר מִבְצַר עֹר Joshua 19:29, and מִבֶעַר עֹר 2 Samuel 24:7, “defenced Tyre,” i.e. Palætyrus (compare my Comment on Isaiah 23:7). Pl. עָרֵי מִבְעָר Numbers 32:36; Joshua 19:35 also with both words in pl. עָרֵי מִבְעָרֶיךָ Jeremiah 5:17, and with one only so put עִיר מִבְעָרוֹת “defenced cities,” Daniel 11:15. (Comp. Hebr. Gram. § 106, 3.)-Metaph. Jeremiah 6:27, “I have set thee as a touchstone amongst my people, מִבְעָר like a defenced fortress,” which is safe from the violence of foes; compare Jeremiah 1:18.

(2) [Mibzar], pr.n. of a prince of the Edomites, Genesis 36:42.
