Gesenius Definition

דָּבַק and דָּבֵק fut. יִרְבָּק inf. דָּבְקָה.

(1) to cleave, to adhere, specially firmly, as if with glue, to be glued, ankleben, anbacken. (Arab. دَبِقَ, Syr. ܕܒܶܩ id. A kindred root is طبخ to cook, backen; the primary syllable is בק, which has the sense of cooking; compare בַּג, Pers. باه, باج, بحتن, يختن bukhten, pukhten. See also פָּנַג). Const. followed by בְּ Job 19:20 אֶל Jeremiah 13:11 לְ Psalms 102:6, intrans. Lamentations 4:1, דָּבַק לְשׁוֹן יוֹנֵק אֶל־חִכּוֹ “the tongue of the sucking child clave to the roof of its mouth” (from thirst, drought). Psalms 22:16 [Hophal]. The same expression is used of one who is silent out of reverence, Job 29:10; Psalms 137:6 (comp. Hiphil, Ezekiel 3:26). Deuteronomy 13:18, “let nothing cleave to thy hands,” i.e. take nothing by stealth. Job 31:7. Trop. to follow any one, to cleave to him, Ruth 2:8, 21 followed by בְּ verse 23. Hence, to be attached to any one, to be lovingly devoted (κολλᾶσθαι τινί), e. g. to a king, to God, to a wife, followed by בְּ and לְ Deuteronomy 10:20, 11:22 2 Samuel 20:2; 1 Kings 11:2; Joshua 23:12; Genesis 2:24, 34:3 followed by אַחֲרֵי Psalms 63:9, דָּֽבְקָה נַפְשִׁי אַחֲרֶיךָ “my soul cleaveth to thee.”

(2) [“to attach oneself to any thing”], to come upon, to reach any one, followed by an acc.; בְּ and אַחֲרֵי Genesis 19:19; Deuteronomy 28:60. Jeremiah 42:16, שָׁם יִרְבַּק אַחֲרֵיכֶם “there it (famine) shall overtake you.” Synon. הִשִּׂיג see Hiphil No. 3.

Pual, pass. to be glued together, to adhere firmly, Job 38:38, 41:9.

Hiphil

(1) causat. of Kal No. 1, to cause to adhere, to make to cleave, Ezekiel 3:26, 29:4 Jeremiah 13:11.

(2) to follow hard, followed by an acc. Judges 18:22; 2 Samuel 1:6, and אַחֲרֵי. Judges 20:45, זַיַרְבִּיקוּ אַחֲרָיו “and they followed hard after him;” 1 Samuel 14:22, 31:2.

(3) to come upon, to reach any one (like Kal No. 3), Genesis 31:23; Judges 20:42 also causat. to cause to reach, Deuteronomy 28:21.

Hophal, to cleave fast, Psalms 22:16.
