Jeshurun [N] [E]

(supremely happy ), and once by mistake in Authorized Version JESURUN, ( Isaiah 44:2 ) a symbolical name for Israel in ( 32:15 ; deuteronomy 33:5 deuteronomy 33:26 ; Isaiah 44:2 ) It is most probably derived from a root signifying "to be blessed." With the intensive termination Jeshurun would then denote Israel as supremely happy or prosperous, and to this signification the context in ( 32:15 ) points.
