Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בּוּם an unused root, which appears to have had the notion of height, whence בָּמָה a high place, which see. The other Phœnicio-Shemitic languages have not this root (see however Syr. ܒܺܝܡܳܐ 1 Samuel 10:23, Pesh.), but its traces are manifest in the Indo-Germanic stock of languages, as the Pers. بام the top of any thing, roof, βωμός, altar, mound, and βοῦνος, hill, pomus, used of taller trees; in the Germanic languages Bom, Boom, Baum, whence ftch bäumen.
