Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אִבְחָה or אֲבָחָה f., once found; (if this be the true reading) Ezekiel 21:20, אִבְחַת חֶרֶב “the threatening of the sword,” i.e. the threatening sword. [“ ‘a turning of the sword,’ i.e. a sword turning itself; perhaps glittering; i.q. חֶרֶב מִתְהַפֶּכֶת, Genesis 3:24.”-Ges. corr.] Castell (Hept. p. 10), compares Arab. أَباَحَةُ destruction, referring to 2 Macc. 26:6; but إِباَحَةُ (for so it should be written) is from the root باح Inf. conj. IV. and denotes permission. [This reference to Castell is of course rejected in Ges. corr.] My own opinion is, that the reading in that passage in Ezekiel is corrupt, and that we should read טִבְחַת חֶרֶב “slaughter of the sword.” This conjecture is confirmed by LXX. σφάγια ῥομφαίας, Ch. קָטְלֵי חַרְבָא, and by the following context, “Lo! it is brightened and sharpened for slaughter (לְטֶבח).” Comp. Ezekiel 21:14, 15 Ezekiel 21:15. The Greek words σφάγιον, σφαγή, are often used to express the Hebrew טֶבַח, טִבְחָה, טְבֹחַ.
