Edar: Tower of the flock, a tower between Bethlehem and Hebron, near which
Jacob first halted after leaving Bethlehem
(Genesis 35:21) In
(Micah 4:8) the
word is rendered "tower of the flock" (marg., "Edar"), and is used as
a designation of Bethlehem, which figuratively represents the royal
line of David as sprung from Bethlehem.
