Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָכַח unused in Kal, prob. i.q. נָכַח to be in the front, in the forepart; hence figuratively, to be in the sunshine, to be clear, manifest, to appear, like the Arab. وجح [“i.q. وضح”] IV. to make clear, to demonstrate, to prove, see Hiphil.

Hiphil הוֹכִיחַ

(1) to argue, to shew, to prove anything (beweifen). Job 13:15, אַךְ־דְּרָבַי אֶל־פָּנָיו אוֹכִיחַ “yet my ways I will argue before him;” I will declare, I will defend. Job 19:5, “prove against me my reproach,” i.e. shew that I have acted basely.

(2) to argue down any one, to confute, to convict, Job 32:12. Followed by a dative, Proverbs 9:7, 15:12 19:25 absol. Ezekiel 3:26; Proverbs 25:12; Amos 5:10; Isaiah 29:21. Especially with the idea of censure; hence to reprove, to rebuke any one (verweifen). Job 6:25, מַה־יּוֹכִיחַ הוֹכֵחַ מִכֶּם “what does your reproving prove?” i.e. your censure Job 13:10, 40:2, מוֹכִיחַ אֱלוֹהַּ “reprover of God.” Genesis 21:25, והוֹכִיהַ אַבְרָהָם אֶת־אֲבִימֶלֶךְ “and Abraham reproved Abimelech;” also, more strongly, to upbraid, 2 Kings 19:4; Isaiah 37:4 and thus

(3) to correct by punishment, to punish; especially used of God dealing with men in discipline for their amendment, Job 5:17; Proverbs 3:12; Psalms 6:2, 38:2 94:10 105:14 141:5. In this sense it is often joined with יָסַר.

(4) to judge, to decide, syn. שָׁפַט Isaiah 11:3 followed by לְ Isaiah 2:4 also, to do justice to any one (like-דִּין, שָׁפַט), 11:4 followed by בֵּין: to be arbiter between- Genesis 31:37; Job 9:33 followed by a dat. to adjudge for any one, Genesis 24:14, 44 Genesis 24:44.

(5) to dispute, to altercate with any one; prop. to argue down, to try to convince (compare נִשְׁפַט, נָדוֹן, and Niphal); followed by an accus. Job 22:4 followed by אֶל Job 13:3 followed by לְ 16:21.

Hophal pass. of No. 3, Job 33:19.

Niphal נוֹכַח

(1) pass. of Hiph. No. 2, to be argued down, to be convicted. Genesis 20:16, וְנֹכָחַת “and she (Sarah) was convicted,” she had nothing by which she could excuse herself.

(2) recipr. to dispute with any one, Job 23:7; Isaiah 1:18.

Hithpael הִתְוַכַּח i.q. Niph. No. 2, Micah 6:2.
