Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָפָה fut. יִיפֶה, וַיִּיף

(1) properly to shine, to be bright, cogn. root יָפַע, compare יָגַע وجع and יָנָה. Hence יֳפִי No. 1, and מוֹפֵת an illustrious deed, a miracle.

(2) to be beautiful, used of a woman, Song of Solomon 4:10, 7:2, Ezekiel 16:13 of a tree, 31:7.

Piel, to make beautiful, to adorn, to deck (with gold), Jeremiah 10:4.

Pual, with the two first radicals doubled יָפְיָפָה to be very beautiful, Psalms 45:3. But this form is altogether without analogy, nor is there any example found of first radicals which are doubled; examples of doubling the latter radicals, such as סְחַרְחַר, can hardly be compared with this, since this latter usage, instead of increasing the signification, diminishes it. To give my own opinion, I think that an error may exist in this word, and that the letters יפ at the beginning may be spurious, as having arisen from the practice of copyists; of this, which has been a constant source of errors, I have treated in Thes. i. p. 64; Anecdd. Orient. i. 68.

Hithpael, to adorn oneself (of a woman), Jeremiah 4:30.

Derivatives, besides those which follow next, יְפִי, יֳפִי, and probably מוֹפֵת.
