בְּלִי subst.

(1) consumption, destruction, Isaiah 38:17 Arab. بَلًى id.

(2) failure, defect, nothing; hence adv. of negation, i.q. לֹא. It is joined to verbs and nouns, Genesis 31:20; Hosea 7:8, 8:7 Isaiah 14:6, 32:10. It is sometimes closely joined to substantives, so that they coalesce into a singleidea, בְּלִישֵׁם “not fame,” i.e. infamy, Job 30:8.

(3), For בִּבְלִי without, only poetically, Job 8:11, בְּלִי מַיִם “without waters;” 24:10 31:39 33:9 34:6 Psalms 59:5.

With prep.

(a) בִּבְלִי prop. in defect, without, i.q. בְּלֹא. בִּבְלִי דַעַת imprudently, Deuteronomy 4:42, 19:4 suddenly, Job 35:16, 36:12 compare בְּלִי No. 2.

(b)לִבְלִי id. (comp. ל letter B) Job 38:41 לִבְלִי־אֹבֶל “without food;” 41:25 Isaiah 5:14.

(c) מִבְּלִּי pr. because of defect

(α) in that not, because not; followed by an inf. Deuteronomy 9:28, יְכֹלֶת יְהֹוָה מִבְּלִי “because Jehovah could not,” Isaiah 5:13. Followed by a part. “because no man,” Lamentations 1:4 מִבְּלִי בָּאֵי מוֹעֵד “because none come to the feast.” Sometimes pleon. מִבְּלִי אֵיז; 2 Kings 1:3, 2 Kings 1:6, 16 2 Kings 1:16; Exodus 14:11 (Syr. ܡܶܢ ܒܠܰܝ ܕ and ܡܶܢ ܒܠܰܝ in that not).

(β) so that not, Job 18:15, תִּשְׁכּוֹן בְּאָהֳלוֹ מִבְּלִי לוֹ “(terror) dwells in his tent so that it is no more his,” i.e. terror occupies his tent, and the wicked removes thence; 6:6 Deuteronomy 28:55. Followed by a part. so that none, מִבְּלִי ישֵׁב “so that no one dwells;” Jeremiah 2:15, 9:10 comp. Ezekiel 14:15. Followed by אֲשֶׁד (so that it forms a conjunction) and pleon. לֹא Ecclesiastes 3:11, מִבְּלִּי אֲשֶׁר לֹ֦א־יִמְצָא הָאָדָם “so that man cannot find out.”

(d) עַר בְּלִּי until failure, i.e. “as long as,” Psalms 72:7; Malachi 3:10.

(e) עַל־בְּלִי in that not, followed by a pret. Genesis 31:20.
