Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲבוֹי (from the root אָבָה No. 2) poverty, misery, a word: once found, Pro, 23:29, of the form קְמוֹל, no doubt formed for the purpose of paronomastically answering to the words אוֹי and הוֹי; compare Lehrg. 374, note r, and Isaiah 15:4, 17:1 59:13 so Abulwalid, whom I unhesitatingly follow. Kimchi, who is followed by most of the moderns, takes it as the same as אוֹי and הוֹי an interjection of grief. [“O, woe! Comp. Gr. αἰβοῖ, Arist. Pac. 1066.”-Ges. add.]
