  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Kedar 
  dark-skinned,  the  second  son  of  Ishmael  (Gen.  25:13). 
 
  It  is  the  name  for  the  nomadic  tribes  of  Arabs,  the  Bedouins 
  generally  (Isa.  21:16;  42:11;  60:7;  Jer.  2:10;  Ezek.  27:21),  who 
  dwelt  in  the  north-west  of  Arabia.  They  lived  in  black 
  hair-tents  (Cant.  1:5).  To  "dwell  in  the  tents  of  Kedar"  was  to 
  be  cut  off  from  the  worship  of  the  true  God  (Ps.  120:5).  The 
  Kedarites  suffered  at  the  hands  of  Nebuchadnezzar  (Jer.  49:28, 
  29). 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
