Meaning

turn aside from a straight line or course

Roots

To SHEER is to turn aside from a course or to deviate, precisely the opposite of SHEER and  ישר YaSHaR (to go straight - ISamuel6:12) in the entry above. The given source of SHEERING is "a form of 'shear'," probably influenced by a cognate of Late German scheren (to cut). Again the AHD has no Indo-European “root”.

  סור $OOR (pronounced SEER in some communities) is to "turn off" to the right or left (Deuteronomy2:27).


Branches

See SWERVE, which also came from $OOR or SVR. SaRaKH  is to wander in all directions - Jeremiah2:23. More SR words of being in line or deviating from a course at "SERIES."


Bible Verses

Deuteronomy 2:27 אעברה בארצך בדרך בדרך אלך לא אסור ימין ושׂמאול׃

“‘Let me pass through thy land; I will go along by the highway, I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left.’”
