The Christian religions know the OT was translated from the Hebrew language...<quoted text>wonder who would know the jews or you.
The Jewish Encyclopedia believes it was most likely a translation of the Babylonian "gushure i÷ erini" (cedar-beams), or the Assyrian "giparu" (reed). The Aramaic Targum Onkelos, considered by many Jews to be an official translation of the Hebrew scripture renders this word as קד 12;וס (qadros) i.e., cedar[SEE THIS}.
The Syriac Peshitta translates this word as ܥܪ 33;ܐ (‘arqa), box wood.
Strong's Lexicon and the English dictionary says no one knows for sure if it was cypress..
