tires

“To tire” the head is to adorn it (2 Kings 9:30).

As a noun the word is derived from “tiara,” and is the rendering of the Hebrew p'er, a “turban” or an ornament for the head (Ezek. 24:17; Revised Version, “headtire;” 24:23). In Isa. 3:18 the word saharonim is rendered “round tires like the moon,” and in Judg. 8:21, 26 “ornaments,” but in both cases “crescents” in the Revised Version.
