Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בָּעָה fut. יִבְעֶה

(1) pr. to make to swell, to cause water to swell and boil; Isaiah 64:1, מַיִם תִּבְעֶה אֵשׁ as “the fire maketh the water to boil.” (To this answers the Arab. بَفَا used of a wound swelling up, Ch. בְּעָא to boil up. As to the kindred root בּוּעַ, נָבַע see בּוּעַ.) From the idea of swelling and heat the Arabs derive the metaphoric sense of absorbing, also that of ardently desiring and longing; and so also in Hebrew

(2) to seek, to ask, to inquire for. (Aram. בְּעָא, ܒܥܐܳ. Isaiah 21:12 (twice).

Niphal

(1) pass. of Kal No. 1, to be swollen up, to swell up, and hence to be prominent. Isaiah 30:13, כְּפֶרֶץ נֹפֵל נִבְעֶה בְּחוֹמָה נִשְׂגָּבָה “as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall.”

(2) pass. of Kal No. 2, to be sought, sought out, Obadiah 1:6.
