Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גִּישׁ a clod of earth, of dust. Once found in the Old Test. Job 7:5, קרי, לָבַשׁ בְּשָׂרִי רִמָּה וְגוּשׁ עָפָר כתיב, גִּישׁ “worms and clods of earth clothe (i.e. cover) my body;” referring to the ashy skin of a sick person, which being rough, and as it were scaly, may seem as if sprinkled with clods of earth; LXX. βώλακες γῆς; Vulg. sordes pulveris. The Talmudists use the same word of a clod, and a lump resembling a clod, Mishn. Tehor. 3, § 2, 5, § 1; see more in Thes. p. 276. Hence is derived denom. התגושש to wrestle, prop. to stir up the dust in wrestling (see נֶאֱבַק). The etymology is very obscure; Jo. Simonis thought גּוּשׁ and גִּישׁ were for נְגוּשׁ, נְגִישׁ from the root نَجِسَ to be unclean, filthy; whence نَجَاسَةُ filth; I prefer regarding גּוּשׁ as i.q. نجس, whence also pr.n. גֵּישָׁן.
