  Kir 
  a  wall  or  fortress,  a  place  to  which  Tiglath-pileser  carried  the 
  Syrians  captive  after  he  had  taken  the  city  of  Damascus  (2  Kings 
  16:9;  Amos  1:5;  9:7).  Isaiah  (22:6),  who  also  was  contemporary 
  with  these  events,  mentions  it  along  with  Elam.  Some  have 
  supposed  that  Kir  is  a  variant  of  Cush  (Susiana),  on  the  south 
  of  Elam.
