(Ἀαλάρ ), a person who (or a place from which some of the Jews) returned after the captivity (1 Esdras 5:36); more correctly called in the parallel list (Nehemiah 7:61) IMMER (See IMMER) (q.v.).
(ארא ), a factitious term used by the Rabbins (Lex. Talm. Aruch, s.v.) as an example of a word beginning with two X's, like AAZRAK (See AAZRAK) (q.v.). In the Talmud, according to Buxtorf (Lex. Talm. Colossians 2:1-23), it is written Avera (אֲוֵירָא ), perhaps only a singular Chaldaic form of the plural URIM (See URIM) (q.v.), light.
