Gesenius Definition

דַּבֶּשֶׁת f.

(1)  the hump, bunch of a camel, Isaiah 30:6. This signification is plain enough from the context, and is expressed by Ch., Syr. and Vulgate; but the etymology has long exercised the ingenuity of interpreters, who have almost all confessed their ignorance. I now think that it may properly mean a bee hive (derived from דְּבַשׁ), and be thus transferred in meaning to a camel’s bunch, because of similarity of appearance. A conjecture lately communicated to me is not amiss, that דַּבֶּשֶׁת by change and transposition of letters may be for דַּגֶּשֶׁת, גַּדֶּשֶׁת a heap. [In Thes. Gesenius ascribes to the root דָּבַשׁ the idea of softness, and hence takes the idea of a camel’s bunch, from its softness in flesh and fat.]

(2) [Dabbasheth], pr.n. of a town, Joshua 19:11.
