The AHDs Indo-European root for SIDEREAL is sweid
( "shine"). A fricative-dental-liquid etymon provides better sound
and sense. In Aramaic-Syriac סדר $iDar is he arranged, put in order; סדר SayDeR, order, appears in the Bible only
in Job 10:22.
SUTURE is the line on which sewing is done, echoing סדר $ayDeR is a row or arrangement. SUTRA is a
thread in Sanskrit, and is the term used for the scriptural narratives in
Buddhism. Aramaic $DRAh is a series, and $iDRaH means a portion in the
Hebrew scriptural narrative. Considering the S-DT-R terms above, SIDEREAL (of
the stars or constellations) would suggest that Latin sideris (star) is
a constellation, arrangement or row (of stars). For further proof that sideris
infers a constellation and not an individual star, note the Indo-European root for
SIDEREAL. Although the AHD defines Indo-European sweidas
"shine," the derivatives CONSIDER (which meant "observe stars
carefully") and DESIRE (which meant "to await from the stars"
according to the AHD) have astrological connotations. Astrological
CONSIDERATIONS involve the $eeDOOR (order, arrangement) of stars, clusters and
their $ayDeR (regular, orderly) STELLAR movements. A $eeDOOR conrtains the
arrangement of prayers. A Passover סדר SEDER is an ordered, ritual meal.

STAR is then
influenced by Sin-Dalet-Resh, by SHiDayRaH (row) and by other more
astrologically charged terms like $ayTeR (hidden; related to ESTHER), ASHToReTH
(IKings 11:5 - ASTARTE worship to close to EASTER for some),
(Mee)SHDTaiR (to rule see SATRAP) and SHaLADT (to rule see SULTAN).
These last two terms recall the ancient belief that the STARS STEER us, rather
than our steering by the stars. Greek aster (star) gives us ASTERISK, ASTEROID,
ASTRAL, and many ASTRO- words from ASTRONAUT and ASTRONOMY to ASTROPHYSICS.

Israeli says that hes סדרב
B $ayDeR it means that
hes OK, in good health.
$ayDeR, with only a fricative shift, appears in the health
words like Czech zdr avi, Polish zdrowie,
Russian zdrovye and Serbo-Croatian zdravlje
