Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אָסְפַּרְנָא (Milêl) adv. Ch. carefully, studiously, diligently. Ezra 5:8, 6:8, 12 Ezra 6:12, 13 Ezra 6:13, 7:17, 21 Ezra 7:21, 26 Ezra 7:26. LXX. ἐπιδέξιον, ἐπιμελῶς, ἐτοίμως. Vulg. studiosè, diligenter. The origin of this word is doubtless to be sought in the Persic (see אַדְרַזְדָּא ), although the etymology and signification are not certain. Bohlen (symb. p.21) thinks it to be از فرنان i.e. out of wisdom, for wisely, diligently; Kosegarten with Castell prefers to compare سيرى seperi and اسيرى entirely, perfectly.
