Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

הָכַר in Kal not used. [See added note below.] Arab. هَكَرَ and هَكِرَ to be stupified, to be stunned, Kamûs i. 691, العَجَبُ اوأَشَدُّهُ admiration, or, most vehement admiration, i.e. stupor. Kimchi, after R. Jonah תמיהה גדלה great admiration. Alb. Schultens (on Job 19:3) thought the original idea to be that of being stiff, rigid, but considered it worthy of more examination; I have no doubt but that it is that of beating, pounding, comparing it with the primitive syllable חך, הק, in which there is the sense of beating, cutting, with a stroke; compare the kindred verbs חָקַק, חָקַר, هَقَّ and חָכַל, חָכַם which see.

[“Once fut. Kal, or (Heb. Gramm. § 52, note 4)”]

Hiphil, to stun, to stupify; Job 19:3, לֹא תֵבוֹשׁוּ תַּהְכְּרוּ לִי “ye are not ashamed, ye stun me,” LXX. οὐκ αἰσχυνόμενοί με ἐπίκεισθέ μοι, Jerome, et non erubescitur opprimentes me; fchaamlos übertäubet ihr mich, as rightly given by Cromayer, Schultens in Animadverss.-תַּהְכְּרוּ seems to stand for תַּהְכִּירוּ (compare וַיַּדְרְכוּ Jeremiah 9:2). It may even be taken for the fut. Kal, but on account of the dative לִי, which particularly often follows verbs in Hiphil (Lehrg. p. 817), the common opinion appears to me to be preferable.

[“Better perhaps to assign to הָכַר the force of Arab. خكر to injure, to litigate pertinaciously; whence in Job l. c. shameless ye injure me. Several MSS. read תַּחְכְּרוּ.” Ges. corr.]
