Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קִיר once קִר Isaiah 22:5 pl. קִירוֹת m. (not comm., for 2 Kings 4:10 קְטַנָּה refers to עֲלִיּת, not to קִיר)

(1)  a wall, Leviticus 14:37, 39 Leviticus 14:39; 1 Kings 6:15 a wall, e.g. of a city, Numbers 35:4; Joshua 2:15. (The origin is doubtful. A wall may be so called from the lime with which it is covered, compare גִּיר lime; it may take its name from transverse beams, compare קוּר, קוֹרָה: but neither of these is satisfactory. It is more probable that from this word קִיר signif. 2, has come עִיר a city.) Isaiah 25:4, זֶרֶם קִיר “a shower overthrowing a wall.” Used of the sides of the altar, Leviticus 1:15, 5:9 of the walls of the heart, Jeremiah 4:19.

(2) a place fortified with a wall (like the Gr. τεῖχος, Herod., Xen.), a fortress; whence קִיר מוֹאָב Isaiah 15:1, (“the fortress of Moab,” Chald. כְּרַכָּא דְמוֹאָב), pr.n. of a fortified city on the borders of the land of Moab, now called Kerrek; this name in a wider sense is used of the whole tract of country. The same is called Jeremiah 48:31, 36 Jeremiah 48:36, קִיר חֶרֶשׂ [Kir-heres, Kir-heresh], (the wall of bricks, or the brick fortress), and Isaiah 16:7, 11 Isaiah 16:11; 2 Kings 3:25 קִיר חֲרֶשֶׂת [Kir-hareseth, Kir-haraseth], (id.).

(3) [Kir], pr.n. of a nation and region subject to the Assyrian empire, Isaiah 22:6; 2 Kings 16:9; Amos 1:5, 9:7, prob. the region between the Euxine, and Caspian seas, on the river Cyrus, now called in Armenian, Kur.
