As'sur, a less correct form of two names.
1. (Heb. Ashshur', אִשּׁוּר, Sept. and Apoc. Α᾿σσούρ.) An inaccurate method of Anrlicizing (Ezr 4:2; Ps 83:8) or Graecizing (2 Esd. 2:8; Jg 2:14; Jg 5:1; Jg 6:1,17; Jg 7:20,24; Jg 13:15; Jg 14:3; Jg 15:6; Jg 16:4) the original SEE ASSHUR word for ASSYRIA SEE ASSYRIA (q.v.).
2. (Α᾿σούρ v. r. Α᾿σούβ, while other copies omit; Vulg. Azi.) One of the heads of the "temple servants," whose descendants are said to have returned from Babylon (1 Esdr. 5:31), doubtless a corruption for the HARHUR SEE HARHUR (q.v.) of the true text (Ezr 2:51).
