רָעַשׁ [“to shake, to tremble”] to be moved, to be shake; hence to tremble, as the earth, Judges 5:4; Isaiah 13:13, “the earth shall be moved from its place,” shall tremble (compare Job 9:6); the heaven, Joel 2:10, 4:16 the mountains, Jeremiah 4:24; Nahum 1:5 the sea-coast, Ezekiel 26:15. (Arab. رعس and رعش to tremble; but the origin of the Hebrew word and the primary notion lies in noise and crashing, which takes place from concussion, see the subst. רָעַשׁ, and under the root רָעַע). Used of the rustling (Raufchen) of grain moved by the wind, Psalms 72:16.
Niphal, i.q. Kal, to be moved, shaken (said of the earth), Jeremiah 50:46.
(1) to move, to shake, cause to tremble, the heaven and earth, Psalms 60:4; Haggai 2:6, Haggai 2:7 kingdoms, Isaiah 14:16 hence to terrify the nations, Ezekiel 31:16. Specially
(2) to make a horse leap (as verbs of trembling are applied to leaping, compare נָתַר Piel, חָרַג, הַרְגַּל, and the kindred verb to this, רָבַשׁ No. II.), Job 39:20, הֲתַרְעִישֶׁנּוּ כָּאַרְבֶּה “dost thou make (i.e. teach) him to leap like a locust?” lehrft du es hüpfen (galoppiren), wie die Heufchrecke?
