Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary
Arcturus

a gathering together

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Bear-keeper, the name given by the ancients to the brightest star in the constellation Bootes. In the Authorized Version (Job 9:9; 38:32) it is the rendering of the Hebrew word 'ash, which probably designates the constellation the Great Bear. This word (`ash) is supposed to be derived from an Arabic word meaning night-watcher, because the Great Bear always revolves about the pole, and to our nothern hemisphere never sets.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) A fixed star of the first magnitude in the constellation Bootes.
