(2) (3) gadhar (2 Kings 12:12), charash qur (1 Chronicles 14:1), "maker of a wall (or hedge)";

(4) chatsabh, "a hewer or digger (of stones)" (1 Chronicles 22:2 Ezra 3:7).

Lebanon still supplies the greater number of skilled masons to Palestine and Syria (see 2 Samuel 5:11), those of Shweir being in special repute.


Easton's Bible Dictionary
An artificer in stone. The Tyrians seem to have been specially skilled in architecture (1 Kings 5:17, 18; 2 Samuel 5:11). This art the Hebrews no doubt learned in Egypt (Exodus 1:11, 14), where ruins of temples and palaces fill the traveller with wonder at the present day.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) One whose occupation is to build with stone or brick; also, one who prepares stone for building purposes.
