(Hebrew har). Both single heights, as Sinai, Zion, etc., and ranges as Lebanon. Also a mountainous region, "the mountain of Israel" and "Judah" (Joshua 40:16; Joshua 40:21), i.e. the highland as opposed to the plain, the hill country (Joshua 21:11). "Mount Ephraim" is Ephraim's hilly country (2 Chronicles 15:8). "The mount of the valley" (2 Chronicles 13:19) a district E. of Jordan in Reuben, the vale of Siddim (Genesis 14:3; Genesis 14:8) according to Keil. Even more than with ourselves the parts of a mountain are compared to bodily members: the head KJV "top," the ears Aznoth Tabor (Joshua 19:34), the shoulder, the back.
