"To tire" the head is to adorn it ( 2 Kings 9:30 ). As a noun the word is derived from "tiara," and is the rendering of the Heb. p'er, a "turban" or an ornament for the head ( Ezekiel 24:17 ; RSV, "headtire;" 24:23 ). In Isaiah 3:18 the word saharonim is rendered "round tires like the moon," and in Jud 8:21,26"ornaments," but in both cases "crescents" in the Revised Version.
