Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מוּר not used in Kal; to change, to exchange, i.q. יָמַר. In Syriac this root has the signification of to buy; in Arabic the letters مار Med. Ye, signify to sell; both taken from the notion of exchanging; compare Heb. מָהַר No. II.

Hiphil הֵמִיר

(1) to exchange any thing, Levit. 27:33 Ezekiel 48:14; Micah 2:4 followed by בְּ of the thing with which any thing is exchanged, Psalms 106:20; Jeremiah 2:11; Hosea 4:7.

(2) absol. to change. Psal. 15:4, “he sweareth וְלֹא יָמִיר and changeth not (sc. his mind);” i.e. does not violate his oath. Psalms 46:3, לֹא־נִירא בְּהָמִיר אֶרֶץ “we will not fear, though the earth should change (itself),” should perish (comp. Psalms 102:27).

Niphal נָמַר (as if from the root מָרַר), to be changed, Jeremiah 48:11.
