Gesenius Definition


(1)  to knock at a door, Song of Solomon 5:2 compare Hithpael.

(2) to drive a flock hard, to overdrive, Genesis 33:13. (Arab. دفق to go quickly, pr. to be thrust forward.)

Hithpael, part. מִתְדַּפְּקִים knocking in rivalry at a door (this seems to me to be the signification of the conj. Hithpael in this place), Judges 19:22. Hence
