גֶּבֶר pl. גְּבָרים m.

(1)  a man, vir, so called from strength, i.q. אִישׁ, a word with few exceptions (Deuteronomy 22:5; 1 Chronicles 24:4, 26:12 compare לִגְבָרִים), found only in poetry; in the Aramean (גְּבַר, ܓܒܰܪ, ܓܰܒܪܐܳ) it is very widely used. Psalms 34:9, אַשְׁרֵי הַגֶּבֶר יֶחֱסֶה־בּוֹ “blessed is the man who trusteth in him;” Psalms 52:9, 94:12, etc.; לִגְבָרִים, לַגְּבָרֻים man by man, Joshua 7:14, 17 Joshua 7:17; 1 Chronicles 23:3. Specially

(a) opp. to a woman, a male, Deuteronomy 22:5; Jeremiah 30:6, 31:22 and even used of male offspring newly born; Job 3:3, “the night which said הֹרָה גֶבֶר a male is conceived;” compare אִישׁ 1, a.

(b) opp. to wife, a husband, Proverbs 6:34. Sometimes

(c) it denotes the strength of a man, Isaiah 23:17, “behold Jehovah will cast thee טַלְטֵלָה גֶּבֶר with the casting of a man,” i.e. with a strong, most violent propulsion; Job 38:3, 40:7 Psalms 88:5 comp. אִישׁ 1, d.

(d) man, homo, opp. to God; compare אִישׁ 1, e, Job 4:17, 10:5 14:10, 14 Job 14:14.

(e) a soldier (compare אִישׁ 1, l), Judges 5:30 compare Jeremiah 41:16, גְּבָרִים אַנְשֵׁי טִלְחָמָה.

(2) i.q. אִישׁ No. 4, every one, each. Joel 2:8, גֶּבֶר בִּמְסִלָּתוֹ יֵלֵכוּן “each one shall go on in his own way.” Lamentations 3:39 (in the second hemistich).

(3) [Geber], pr.n. m. 1 Kings 4:19 comp. 13 1 Kings 4:13.
