Finer (צֹרֵŠ, tsoreph',),:a gold and silver worker (Pr 25:4). SEE REFINER. In Jg 17:4, our version renders the word "founder;" in Isa 41:7, "goldsmith." It refers especially-to the melting of fine metal. SEE FURNACE. The Egyptians carried the working of metals to a very extraordinary degree of perfection, as their various articles of jewelry preserved in our museums evince; and there is no doubt the Hebrews derived their knowledge of these arts from this source, though there is at the same time reference to their being known before the Flood (Ge 14:19-22). SEE METAL.
