Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
NEESING. The vb. ‘to neese’ (mod. ‘sneeze’) occurs in the 1611 ed. of AV [Note: Authorized Version.] at 2 Kings 4:35 ,’ the child neesed seven times.’ But the ‘neesing’ ( Job 41:18 ) of leviathan (the crocodile) means hard breathing, snorting, and does not come from the same A.S. verb as ‘neese’ meaning ‘to sneeze.’
