Range is the rendering of two Heb. words of marked import, besides one or two in an ordinary sense.
1. כַּיר, kir (only in the dual, כַּירִיַם, kira'yim, Le 11:35, "ranges for pots"), apparently a cooking-furnace, perhaps of pottery (as it could be broken), and double (as having places for two pots or more, or, perhaps, consisting of two stoves set together). SEE OVEN; SEE POT.
2. שׂדֵרָה, sederah', a rank, or row, of soldiers, drawn up in cordon ("range," 2Ki 11:8,15; 2Ch 23:14); also timbers or chambers in the stories of a building ("board," 1Ki 6:9). SEE ATHALIAH, TEMPLE.
