צִיר a root of doubtful authority, as a verb; as far as may be gathered from the derivatives
(1) to go in a circle (kindred to טוּר, תּוּר, דּוּר, שׁוּר), whence צִיר hinge, writhing pain.
(2) to go (Arab. صار Med. Ye, to go, to arrive, comp. סוּר, זוּר), whence צִיר a messenger. Hence
Hithpael הִצְטַיִּרִ Joshua 9:4, may be, “they betook themselves to the way.” But no other trace of this form and signification is either found in Hebrew, or in Aramean, and the ancient interpreters have all given it as הִצְטַיָּד֑וּ “they furnished themselves with provisions for the journey,” as in ver. 12 Joshua 9:12, which appears to me preferable.
I. צִיר m.
(1) the hinge of a door, Proverbs 26:14, from the root צִיר No. 1. From the same
(2) צִירִים i.q. חֲבָלִים pains (as if writhings) of a parturient woman, Isaiah 13:8, 21:3 1 Samuel 4:19. Metaph. used of terror, Daniel 10:16, which is often compared with the pain and alarm in childbirth; compare ضار V. to twist oneself with pain.
(3) a messenger, Proverbs 13:17, 25:13.
II. צִיר m. (from the root צוּר No. 5)
(1) an idol, Isaiah 45:16.
(2) form, Psalms 49:15 כתיב
