ANER [SMITH]

one of the three Amorite chiefs of Hebron who aided Abraham in the pursuit after the four invading kings. (Genesis 14:13,24)

ANER (1) [ISBE]

ANER (1) - a'-ner (`aner; Septuagint Aunan; Samaritan Pentateuch, `anram, "sprout," "waterfall"): One of the three "confederates" of Abraham in his pursuit after the four kings (Gen 14:13,14). Judging from the meanings of the two other names, Mamre being the name of the sacred grove or tree (Jahwist) and synonymous with Hebron (Priestly Code); and Eschol--a name of a valley (lit. "grape cluster") from which the personal names are derived--it may be expected to explain the name Aner in a similar way. Dillmann suggested the name of a range of mountains in that vicinity (Comm. at the place and Rosen in ZDMG, XII, 479; Skinner, Genesis, 365).

S. Cohon

ANER (2) [ISBE]

ANER (2) - a'-ner (`aner, meaning doubtful): A Levitical town in Manasseh, West of the Jordan (1 Ch 6:70). Gesenius and others identified it with Taanach of Josh 21:25. There is, however, no agreement as to its location.
