🔼The name Tiria in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Tiria
The name Tiria comes from either the verb ירה (yara), meaning to throw cast or shoot, or ירא (yara' I), meaning to fear or revere:
For a meaning of the name Tiria, NOBSE Study Bible Name List appears to go with ירה (yara) and reads Foundation, while Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names goes with ירא (yara' I), and proposes Fear. BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an interpretation of our name but does list it under ירא (yara' I), in apparent agreement with Jones.
