More Information

  Regarding definition #2 – pull, tug:

They called a bow a HurDagh chuHwI' "stringed-instrument hurler" (or something like that). Of course, the thing that was hurled was an arrow, not a stringed instrument. Over time, this got shortened to HurwI', and, from this, a new verb developed: Hur "pull, tug." Applied to a HurwI', Hur refers to the action of pulling back the string of the bow (before releasing and launching the arrow), but, in other contexts, it may refer to pulling the handle on a door to open or close the door or to pulling on someone's suspenders.
