Strong’s #2206


That there came men from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from Samaria, even fourscore men, having their beards shaven and their clothes rent, and having cut themselves, with meal-offerings and frankincense in their hand, to bring them to the house of YHWH.

Jeremiah 41:5

In ancient Hebrew culture a long and white beard was a sign of age, maturity and wisdom. The verb form of this word, zaqeyn (Strongs #2204), is the Hebrew meaning “to be old.”
