A generation is one revolution of the family line. The Hebraic understanding of order is the continual cyclical process of life and death or renewal and destruction. This root can also have the meanings of circling around of something in a wide area or to cover a large area. (eng: adore - as honor)

(1) pr. i.q. Arabic دَارَ to go around, to go in a circle; whence دَوْرُ and دَايَِرةُ a circle, دَأيِرُ round. Kindred roots are דָּהַר, דָּרַר, טוּר, תּוּר; and with a dental changed into a sibilant, זוּר, סוּר, שׁוּר; all of which have the idea of going round, turning oneself, girding, variously applied. Hence דּוּר No. 1, and דּוֹר [also מְדוּרָה].
(2) to remain, to delay, to inhabit (like the Ch. דּוּר), Psalms 84:11, either because the first habitations were of a round form (which is the opinion of Jo. Simonis), or (as I prefer) that the idea of going round and turning oneself was applied to turning aside to lodge (compare גּוּר, אָוָה). In the western languages this may be compared with δηρός, δηρόν, a long time, δηρός χρόνος; Lat. durus, durare; Germ. dauern, anciently duren, turen.
דּוּר Ch. to dwell, to inhabit, Daniel 4:9, 18. Part. דָּארִין, דָּֽיְרִין קרי, Daniel 2:38, 3:31 6:26 whence מְדָר, מְדוֹר, מְדוּרָה, תְּדִירָא.
(1) a circle (Arabic دَوْرُ), Isaiah 29:3, כַּדּוּר “as in a circle,” round about.
(2) a ball, Isaiah 22:18.
(3) a burning pile, a round heap of wood, Ezekiel 24:5 (compare מְדּוּרָה, verse 9).
