Jeremiah 33:24; Proverbs 1:30, 5:12 15:5 the counsel of God, Psalms 107:11. Often used of God as rejecting men, Deuteronomy 32:19; Lamentations 2:6 absol.

(2) causat. to cause to speak evil, to give occasion for evil speaking, 2 Samuel 12:14.

Hiphil, fut. יָנֵאץ (in the Syriac manner for יַנְאֵץ), intrans. to be despised, to be contemned, Ecclesiastes 12:5.-LXX., Vulg., Syr., shall flourish (as if from נוּץ), but this does not agree with the context.
