קָנָה fut. יִקְנֶה; apoc. יִקֶן prop. to erect, to set upright, i.q. הֵכִין (cogn. to כּוּן, קִין; whence קָנֶה, קָנָה reed, cane); hence
(1) to found, create [see note below] the heaven and the earth, Genesis 14:19, 22 Genesis 14:22 men, Deuteronomy 32:6; Psalms 139:13; Proverbs 8:22 (Arab. قنا i.q. خلق to create as God; see Kamûs, p. 1937).
(2) to acquire for oneself, Proverbs 4:7, 15:32 16:16 19:8 Ruth 4:9, 10 to obtain, Genesis 4:1 (Eth. ቀነየ፡ to possess, to be owner). Specially

[Note. There does not appear to be any sufficient ground for ascribing the sense of to create to this verb; in all the passages cited for that sense, to possess, appears to be the true meaning; see Dr. M’Caul’s Sermon on the Divine Sonship of the Messiah. Append.]
Niphal, to be acquired, bought, Jeremiah 32:15, 43 Jeremiah 32:43.
