הדר

The root-verb הדר (hadar) means to honor, adorn or glorify, but of its seven occurrences in the Bible, the majority deals with the relation between men (Leviticus 19:32, Lamentations 5:12). It also occurs in the Aramaic portions of the Bible, where it always means to glorify God (Daniel 4:34, 5:23). Its derivations are:

  • The masculine noun הדר (heder), meaning splendor or glory (Daniel 11:20 only).
  • The masculine noun הדר (hadar), meaning ornament (Proverbs 20:29, Ezekiel 16:14), splendor (Deuteronomy 33:17, Isaiah 5:14), or honor (Psalm 149:9, Micah 2:9).
  • The feminine noun הדרה (hadara), meaning adornment, glory (1 Chronicles 16:29, Proverbs 14:28).
