(Opposite) side, side: הַלָּז מֵע׳ 1 Samuel 14:1 on yonder side seems transition to this meaning; מִזֶּה מֵהָע׳ twice, 1 Samuel 14:4 = on one side, on the other side, so אֶחָד לְע׳ twice 1 Samuel 14:40; even מִשְּׁנֵי עִבְרֵיהֶם Exodus 32:15 (E) on their two sides (i.e. of tablets); הָאֵפוֺד בָּ֑יְתָה אֶלעֿ׳ Exodus 28:26 (P) toward the inner side of theephod; in 1 Kings 7:20, 30 ע׳ apparently = at the side of or opposite, but the architectural details are obscure; מִכָּלעֲֿבָרָיו מִסָּבִיב 1 Kings 5:4 on all sides of him, round about, מִכָּלעֲֿבָרָיו Jeremiah 49:32 (read עֶבְרֵיהֶם Vrss Gie) from all sides of them (all directions, = מִכָּלסְֿבִיבָ֑יִךְ Jeremiah 49:5); יֵלֵ֑כוּ פָּנָיו אֶלעֵֿבֶר to the side of their faces (i.e. in front, straight forward) they (always) went Ezekiel 1:9, 12; Ezekiel 10:22, compare פָּנֶיהָ עַל־ע׳ Exodus 25:37 to give light upon the space in front of it; אִישׁ לְעֶבְרוֺ תָּעוּ Isaiah 47:15 they wander away each in his own direction (regardless of thee). — On 1 Chronicles 26:30 see above.
