Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֵבֶה m., reed, papyrus, i.q. Arab. أَبَاءَةُ collect: أَبَاءُ (see the root No. 3, although the Hebrew word may also be simply said to come from the head of a reed being bowed down; compare Isaiah 58:5). It occurs once, Job 9:26, אֳנִיּוֹת אֵבֶה “vessels of reeds,” made of the papyrus Nilotica, such as were of frequent use among the Egyptians and Ethiopians (compare my Comment. on Isaiah 18:2) on account of their very great swiftness on the water. Others, with Symm. [ναυσὶ σπευδούσαις] render ships of desire, i.e. hastening with very great desire to the port. The reading found in forty-four MSS. איבה, should no doubt be read (as was done by the Syriac translator) אֵיבָה, and must be understood of hostile vessels, pirates, passing as quickly as possible over the water; and, suitably enough, in the other hemistich it is joined to the eagle darting on its prey. But the Common reading may have the same meaning, if for אֵבֶה we read אֵבָה.
