Mason

Mason [EBD]

an artificer in stone. The Tyrians seem to have been specially skilled in architecture (1 Kings 5:17, 18; 2 Sam. 5:11). This art the Hebrews no doubt learned in Egypt (Ex. 1:11, 14), where ruins of temples and palaces fill the traveller with wonder at the present day.

Mason [NAVE]

MASON
A trade in the time of David, 2 Sam. 5:11; of later times, 2 Kin. 12:12; 22:6; 1 Chr. 14:1; Ezra 3:7.

MASON [ISBE]

MASON - ma'-s'n: The translation of 4 Hebrew words: (1) charash 'ebhen, "graver of stone" (2 Sam 5:11); (2) (3) gadhar (2 Ki 12:12), charash qur (1 Ch 14:1), "maker of a wall (or hedge)"; (4) chatsabh, "a hewer or digger (of stones)" (1 Ch 22:2; Ezr 3:7). Lebanon still supplies the greater number of skilled masons to Palestine and Syria (see 2 Sam 5:11), those of Shweir being in special repute.

See CRAFTS, II, 8; also ARCHITECTURE; BUILDING; GEBAL; HOUSE.
