Piel עִוֵּר to blind, to make blind. (Syr. ܥܰܘܪܰ In its origin perhaps עִוִּרִ is the same as עִפֵּר to cast dust, sand, chaff into the eye; compare Chald. עוּר.) 2 Kings 25:7; Jeremiah 39:7. Metaph. to blind a judge (with gifts), Exodus 23:8; Deuteronomy 16:19. [In Thes. this Pie1 form is deduced from עוּר III.]
