gōr ( נגח , nāghaḥ ): "Gore" occurs only three times in the King James Version, namely, Exodus 21:28 , Exodus 21:31 bis , "if an ox gore a man or a woman," etc.; in Exodus 21:29 , Exodus 21:32 , Exodus 21:36 , the King James Version has "push" (with his horn), the Revised Version (British and American) "gore." The same verb in Piel and HithpaeI is elsewhere translated "push" and "pushing" (Deuteronomy 33:17 , "He shall push the peoples," the Revised Version, margin "gore"; 1 Kings 22:11; Psalm 44:5; Ezekiel 34:21; Daniel 8:4; Daniel 11:40 , the Revised Version (British and American) "contend," margin "Hebrew push at," as an ox pushes with his horns so should the king fight - a fitting description of warfare).
