גָּאָה fut. יִגְאָה a poetical word.

(1) to lift oneself up, to increase, used of water rising up, Ezekiel 47:5 of a plant growing, Job 8:11.- Job 10:16, וְיִגְאֶה כַּשַּׁחַל תְּצוּדֵנִי “and (if) it (my head) raise itself up, as a lion thou wouldest hurt me.”

(2) Metaph. to be exalted, magnificent, of God, Exodus 15:1, 21 Exodus 15:21. In the derivatives it is applied

(3) to honour (see גָּאוֹן No. 1 ), and

(4) to pride and arrogance, see גַּאֲוָה and גָּאוֹן No. 3. (Syr. Pael ܓܰܙܙܰ to decorate, to make magnificent. Ethpael, to boast oneself; ܓܶܐܐ, ܓܐܝܳܐ adorned, magnificent.) In the signification of pride, it accords with the Gr. γαίω.
