Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּזָה prop. to cut, like גָּזַז (which see); specially

(1) to cut a stone, to form by cutting, whence גָּזִית. (Syr. ܓܰܙܝܺ to prune, to shear.)

(2) Metaph. to give, to divide out, which is derived from the idea of cutting and sectioning out (Germ. zufchneiden, for zutheilen), just as ταμίας from τέμνειν. Especially like the syn. גָּמַל, used of favours conferred on any one; Psalms 71:6, מִמְּעֵי אִמִּי אַתָּה גֹוזִי “from my mother’s womb thou hast conferred favours upon me.” (Arab. جَزَا to give back; to pay, جَزَاءُ retribution, penalty, reward.)

Derivatives גָּזִית, and pr.n. גִּזֹה, גֹּוזָן.
