Jeff Brenner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
עָרַג fut. יַעֲרֹג
(1) to ascend, i.q. Arabic عَرَجَ, Ethiop. ዐርገ፡ see עֲרוּגָה.
(2) followed by עַל and אֶל to desire anything, as if נָשָׂא נֶפֶשׁ עַל. (Arab. Conj. II. to be bent, or intent upon anything). Psalms 42:2; Joel 1:20. The opinion of the Hebrew writers is that the word ערג properly expresses the cry of the deer, which is applied also to domestic animals, Joel loc. cit. (the Syriac also renders it in both places ܓܥܐ), but this is not confirmed by the use of the cognate languages; although we may compare it with Gr. onomatop. ὠρύω, ὠρυγή. But see the derivative עֲרוּגָה. More is said on this subject by Bochart, Hieroz. part i. page 883.
