Hebrew: kararb (kaw-rath)—meaning to cut (off, down or asunder)
The word “feller” appears only once in the Bible, and only in the King James Version. Other translations use the word “hewer” (ASV), “lumberjack” (God’s Word and Hebrew Names Version), and “woodsman” (NKJV and NIV).
The word refers to the felling (cutting down) of trees. Like the inhabitants of the land, the “fir” trees remained undisturbed. The land was at rest, no longer under the attack and dominion of the successive kings of Babylon.
