עטר

The root-verb עטר ('atar) means to surround. It occurs only twice in the Bible: Psalm 5:12 and 1 Samuel 23:26. Its derivations are:

  • The feminine noun עטרה (atarah), meaning a crown or wreathe (Ezekiel 21:26, Esther 8:15, Job 19:9).
  • The verb עטר (atar) meaning to coronate or give a crown (Psalm 65:11, Isaiah 23:8).
