Beacon (תֹּרֶן, to'ren), Isa 30:17, in the margin in that place, and in the text in chap. 23:23, and Eze 27:5, rendered "mast." It probably signifies a pole used as a standard or "ensign" (נֵס, nes), which was set up on the tops of mountains as a signal for the assembling of the people, sometimes on the invasion of an enemy, and sometimes after a defeat (Isa 5:26; Isa 11:12; Isa 18:3; Isa 62:10). SEE BANNER.
