Topics Definition of Hebrew Words

By Jeff A. Benner

אביר aviyr

The Hebrew word אביר is identified in Strong's dictionary with two different numbers, #46 and #47. In the Masoretic Hebrew text of the Bible, Strong's #46 is written as אֲבִיר (aviyr) and Strong's #47 is written as אַבִּיר (abbiyr). The nikkudot, (the vowel pointings appearing as dots and dashes) were invented by the Masorites and are not part of the original Hebrew text. If we remove these nikkudot we find that these two words are spelled identically – אביר (ABYR).
