Acts xxi:38), "outbreak of disorder, revolt, commotion," from German auf (Middle Dutch op) "up" + ruhr (Middle Dutch roer) "a stirring, motion," related to Old English hreran "to move, stir, shake" (see rare (adj.2)). Meaning "noisy shouting" is first recorded 1540s, probably by mistaken association with unrelated roar.
