Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [חָדַר] verb surround, enclose (Phoenician in derivatives; Arabic II. conceal, curtain concealing a person, chamber, house, or tent as concealing some one; Ethiopic dwell; see also following) ** Phoenician is only חדר, חדרת (temple or sepulchral) chamber (Lzb271 Cooke126); Ezekiel 21:19 is best explained from Syriac go about, surround, Syriac around. It seems uncertain whether חֶדֶר, Phoenician חדר chamber, Arabic curtain, chamber, tent, etc., are (ultimately) from this √ (as something surrounding); or (Buhl) from II. חדר = II. conceal behind curtain, conceal, confine, IV. conceal oneself, also abide, stay, remain behind (Land707f.), Ethiopic abide, dwell (Driver, privately, Nov. 1905). — only

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָדַר i.q. Syr. ܚܕܪܰ to surround, to enclose; and in an evil sense, to besiege. (This root belongs to the same family as הָצַר and נָּדַר, which see.

By means of this signification, I now explain Ezekiel 21:19, חֶרֶב הַחֹדֶרֶת לָהֶם “the sword which besieges them (on every side),” besets them all around. Abulwalid considers the same sense of besieging to be derived from sitting down and lying hid (see Arab. and Eth.). The ancient versions have “a sword frightening them,” as though it were the same as חֹרֶדֶת. Hence
