Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
חֲצֹצְרָה chătsôtsᵉrâh, khats-o-tser-aw'; by reduplication from H2690; a trumpet (from its sundered or quavering note):—trumpet(-er).
חֲצֹצְרָה noun feminine clarion (Late Hebrew חֲצוֺצֶרֶת, Aramaic חֲצוֺצַרְתָּצ) — mostly P and late; — absolute ח׳ Hosea 5:8; plural absolute חֲצֹצְרוֺת Numbers 10:8 + 22 times; חֲצֹצְרֹת Numbers 10:9, 10; construct id. Numbers 31:6; 2 Chronicles 13:12; חֲצוֺצְרֹת Numbers 10:2; clarion:
1. as secular instrument Hosea 5:8 (|| שׁוֺפָר) 2 Kings 11:14 (twice in verse)=2 Chronicles 23:13 (twice in verse).
2. as sacred instrument 2 Kings 12:14, especially for use by priests (only P, Psalm 98 and Chronicles).
a. תקע בח׳ (of blowing a single long blast) Numbers 10:3, 4, 7, 8, to gather congregation or נשׂיא׳ together, and, on festivals, over sacrifice, 'to be remembered before י׳,' Numbers 10:10.
b. תקע תרועה בח׳, or הריע בח׳ (of sounding alarm, — a series of quick blasts) for camps to move Numbers 10:5, 6, also in battle, Numbers 10:9, 'to be remembered before י׳;' so Numbers 31:6; 2 Chronicles 13:12 (compare 2 Chronicles 13:14), both התרועה ח׳.
c. especially in Chr's descriptions of ceremonies at festivals, to express rejoicing: 1 Chronicles 13:8; 1 Chronicles 15:28 (|| קוֺל שׁוֺפָר), 1 Chronicles 16:6, 42; 2 Chronicles 15:14 (|| שׁוֺפָר), 2 Chronicles 20:28; 29:26, 27; Ezra 3:10; Nehemiah 12:35, 41; Psalm 98:6 (|| קוֺל שׁוֺפָר); הָרִים קוֺל בח׳ 2 Chronicles 5:13; מחצצרים בח׳ 1 Chronicles 15:24; 2 Chronicles 5:12, 13; 13:14; in 2 Chronicles 29:28 this participle agrees with noun in sense, and is masculine; and the clarions (=players on the clarions) sounded. — The חֲצֹצְרָה, or (sacred) clarion, was a long, straight, slender metal tube, with flaring end, see BenzArchäol. 277; distinguished thus from the שׁוֺפָר which was originally a ram's horn, and probably always retained the horn-shape; the שׁוֺפָר is mentioned constantly in the earlier literature, and was used by watchmen, warriors, etc., as well as priests (see Benzib. 276 and שׁוֺפָר).
