cedar
(heb. e'rez, gr. kedros, lat. cedrus), a tree very frequently mentioned in scripture. it was stately (ezek. 31:3-5), long-branched (ps. 80:10; 92:12; ezek. 31:6-9), odoriferous (cant. 4:11; hos. 14:6), durable, and therefore much used for boards, pillars, and ceilings (1 kings 6:9, 10; 7:2; jer. 22:14), for masts (ezek. 27:5), and for carved images (isa. 44:14). it grew very abundantly in palestine, and particularly on lebanon, of which it was "the glory" (isa. 35:2; 60:13). hiram supplied solomon with cedar trees from lebanon for various purposes connected with the construction of the temple and the king's palace (2 sam. 5:11; 7:2, 7; 1 kings 5:6, 8,10; 6:9, 10, 15, 16, 18, 20; 7:2, 3, 7, 11, 12; 9:11, etc.). cedars were used also in the building of the second temple under zerubbabel (ezra 3:7). of the ancient cedars of lebanon there remain now only some seven or eight. they are not standing together. but beside them there are found between three hundred and four hundred of younger growth. they stand in an amphitheatre fronting the west, about 6,400 feet above the level of the sea. the cedar is often figuratively alluded to in the sacred scriptures. "the mighty conquerors of olden days, the despots of assyria and the pharaohs of egypt, the proud and idolatrous monarchs of judah, the hebrew commonwealth itself, the war-like ammonites of patriarchal times, and the moral majesty of the messianic age, are all compared to the towering cedar, in its royal loftiness and supremacy (isa. 2:13; ezek. 17:3, 22, 23, 31:3-9; amos 2:9; zech. 11:1, 2; job 40:17; ps. 29:5; 80:10; 92:12, etc).", groser's scrip. nat. hist.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

The Hebrew word erez, invariably rendered "cedar" by the Authorized Version, stands for that tree in most of the passages where the word occurs. While the word is sometimes used in a wider sense, (Leviticus 14:6) for evergreen cone-bearing trees, generally the cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani) is intended. (1 Kings 7:2; 10:27; Psalms 92:12; Song of Solomon 5:15; Isaiah 2:13; Ezekiel 31:3-6) The wood is of a reddish color, of bitter taste and aromatic odor, offensive to insects, and very durable. The cedar is a type of the Christian, being evergreen, beautiful, aromatic, wide spreading, slow growing, long lived, and having many uses. As far as is at present known, the cedar of Lebanon is confined in Syria to one valley of the Lebanon range, viz., that of the Kedisha river, which flows from near the highest point of the range westward to the Mediterranean, and enters the sea at the port of Tripoli. The grove is at the very upper part of the valley, about 15 miles from the sea, 6500 feet above that level, and its position is moreover above that of all other arboreous vegetation. ("Of the celebrated cedars on Mount Lebanon, eleven groves still remain. The famous B'Sherreh grove is three-quarters of a mile in circumference, and contains about 400 trees, young and old. Perhaps a dozen of these are very old; the largest, 63 feet in girth and 70 feet high, is thought by some to have attained the age of 2000 years."-Johnson's Encycl.)

Cedar Throughout Asia Minor initiates were called the trees of righteousness, hence the mystical meaning of "the cedars of Lebanon," in which category belong also some kings of Israel; and the same term was applied in India, but mostly to adepts of the left-hand path (SD 2:494-5).
