  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Edar 
  tower  of  the  flock,  a  tower  between  Bethlehem  and  Hebron,  near 
  which  Jacob  first  halted  after  leaving  Bethlehem  (Gen.  35:21). 
  In  Micah  4:8  the  word  is  rendered  "tower  of  the  flock"  (marg., 
  "Edar"),  and  is  used  as  a  designation  of  Bethlehem,  which 
  figuratively  represents  the  royal  line  of  David  as  sprung  from 
  Bethlehem.
