Best Answer

A 'stronghold' or a place that seems impossible to penetrate. This is true of the Jebusites in 2 Samuel 5:6-9 where their 'V' shaped formation made them feel overly confident that they could withstand David and the Israelites.

The Bible speaks of God as a fortress. Interestingly, 2 Samuel 22, verse 3 of that chapter (also Psalm 18:2) is quoted in Hebrews 2:13, and 2 Samuel 22:50 (Psalm 18:49) is quoted in Romans 15:9 as applying directly to Jesus.

What is the Hebrew word for fortress and what are its origins and meanings in Hebrew?

The Hebrew word for fortress is mivtsar (מבצר) and it comes from the Hebrew root bitser (ב.צ.ר.) which means "to fortify". I'm not sure why you are asking for its meaning: mivtsar means "fortress" in Hebrew, but you already know that. Another Hebrew word for fortress is metzudah (מצודה). The origin of both these Hebrew words is the Hebrew Bible (2 Samuel 5:7, and Numbers 32:36, respectively). Perhaps you are thinking of the particular fortress near the Dead Sea called Masada. In addition to being a physical fortress, the idea of Masada connotes the heroism and martyrdom of those Jews who resisted the Roman Occupation there.
