(קרשׁ , ḳeresh ): Found only in English Versions of the Bible in Ezekiel 27:6 , in the prophet's "lamentation over Tyre": "They have made thy benches of ivory inlaid in boxwood, from the isles of Kittim," where the word evidently stands for the "benches" of the boat whose "mast" (Ezekiel 27:5 ) and "oars" (Ezekiel 27:6 ) have just been described, in the vivid figs. of speech in which the city itself is pictured as a merchantship. Compare Ezekiel 27:8 , "Thy wise men, O T yre, were in thee, they were thy pilots." See SEAT .
