Jeshurun

Additional Links

("the righteous (from yaashaar ) people"): Israel's ideal character; his high calling (Deuteronomy 32:15; Deuteronomy 33:5; Deuteronomy 33:26; Isaiah 44:2; compare Numbers 23:21). (See JASHER, BOOK OF.) The idea of blessedness and prosperity enters into the word; the Arabic and the Hebrew: ashar , "happy," being related to yaashaar . There is a play on similar sounds which the Hebrew writers delight in, in Jeshurun and the diminutive of Israel, Israelun.
