Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָכָה to wait. (Alb. Schultens, on Job 3:21, seeks for the primary idea in tying, or binding, comp. Arab. حكأ to tie a knot, and the Latin moram nectere ap. Senecam Trag. & Val. Flacc. ). In Kal once, part. [active] const. חוֹכֵי Isaiah 30:18, followed by לְ. Of more frequent occurrence is

Piel חִכָּה id. 2 Kings 7:9 followed by an acc. and לְ, Job 32:4 especially used as חִכָּה לַיהֹוָה to wait for Jehovah (full of confidence), Psalms 33:20 Isai. 8:17 Isaiah 30:18, יְחַכֶּה יְהֹוָה לַחֲנַנְכֶם “Jehovah will wait that he may be gracious to you,” if he can again be favourable to you. Inf. in a Ch. form חַכֵּי Hosea 6:9. [“In the parallel member is יָרוּם he will arise, sc. in order to do this or that, which thus comes near to the Arab. رام i.q. ὀρέγεσθαι.” Ges. add.]
