nēr , nı̄ (chiefly קרוב , ḳārōbh , "to draw near," קרב , ḳārabh ; ἐγγύς , eggús ): Used of proximity in place ( Genesis 19:20; Genesis 45:10; Exodus 13:17; Psalm 22:11; John 3:23 , etc.), time (Jeremiah 48:16; Ezekiel 7:7; Ezekiel 30:3; Mark 13:28 ), or kinship (Leviticus 21:2; Rth 3:12), but also employed of moral nearness. Yahweh is "nigh" to them that are of a broken heart (Psalm 34:18 ). God draws nigh to His people, and they to Him (James 4:8 ). The antithesis is God's "farness" from the wicked.
