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.
