רָעֵב fut. יִרְעַב to hunger (Arab. رَغبَ. The primary idea appears to lie in that of an ample, i.e. empty stomach; compare the kindred רָחַב and Eth. ርኀበ፡ to hunger). Used of individual men [or other beings], Psalms 34:11, 50:12 of a whole region, Genesis 41:55. Followed by לְ to hunger for any thing, Jeremiah 42:14.

Hiphil, to cause to hunger, Deuteronomy 8:3 to suffer to hunger, Proverbs 10:3.
