Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׁבַע to swear (denom. from שֶׁבַע seven; inasmuch as the septenary number was sacred, and oaths were confirmed either by seven sacrifices, Genesis 21:28, seqq.; or by seven witnesses and pledges. See Herodot., iii. 8; Il. xix. 243. In the Ethiopic language, መሳብዕያን፡ are enchanters, Hen. MS., c. 8; as this number was also reckoned sacred in magical rites): In Kal only found in part. pass. Ezekiel 21:28, שְׁבֻעֵי שְׁבֻעוֹת “those who have sworn oaths.”

Niphal נִשְׁבַּע to swear, constr.

(a) absol., Genesis 21:24; Psalms 24:4.

(b) followed by בְּ of the person by whom one swears, Genesis 21:23, 22:16. To swear, by God, by idols, is sometimes the same as to worship God, or idols, Deuteronomy 6:13, 10:20 Isaiah 19:18; Amos 8:14 but he who swears by one in misfortune, says this, “May I bear the like if I break my faith.” Psalms 102:9 compare Isaiah 65:16.

(c) followed by ל of person, to swear to any one, Genesis 24:7, 21:23 and also with an acc. of the thing, to promise any thing by an oath to any one (einem etwas zufchwören), Genesis 50:24; Exodus 13:5, 33:1. הִשָּׁבֵעַ לֵאלֹהִים is, to swear allegiance to God, 2 Chronicles 15:14 compare Isaiah 19:18; Zephaniah 1:5 (where once it is constr. followed by בְּ).

Hiphil

(1) to cause to swear, to bind by an oath, Numbers 5:19; Genesis 50:5.

(2) to adjure, to charge solemnly, Song of Solomon 2:7, 3:5 5:9 1 Kings 22:16.
