Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שֵׂעִיר (“hairy,” “rough”), [Seir], pr.n.

(1) of a leader of the Horites, Genesis 36:20, 30 Genesis 36:30.

(2) of a mountainous region of the Edomites, extending from the Dead Sea to the Elanitic gulf, the northern part of which is now called Jebâl (see גְּבָל ), the southern el-Shera (الشراة), see Burckhardt’s Travels in Syria, ed. Weimar, p. 674, 688, 1067. Originally the Horites (חוֹרִים) dwelt in this region, Genesis 14:6; Deuteronomy 2:12 afterwards Esau, Genesis 32:4, 33:14, 16 Genesis 33:16, and his descendants, Deuteronomy 2:4, seqq.; 2 Chronicles 20:10. This mountain may have taken its name from that Horite (No. 1); but I prefer rendering שֵׂעִיר as an appellative, the rough mountain, i.e. clothed, and, as it were, bristled with trees and thick woods; compare Gr. λάσιος.

(3) of a mountain in the tribe of Judah, Joshua 15:10.
