Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

הָרָה

(1)  to conceive (as a woman), to become pregnant [“The etymology seems to lie in the idea of swelling; kindred to הָרַר, הַרְהֵר.” Ges.add.], Genesis 4:1, 17 16:4 21:2 25:21 29:32 followed by לְ of the man by whom she conceives, Genesis 38:18. Part. הוֹרָה she who conceives; hence used poet. for a mother, Song of Solomon 3:4; Hosea 2:7. The Hebrew interpreters also consider the plur. הוֹרִים to be as if by zeugma (comp. Arabic أَبَانِ both fathers, for parents), to be put for parents, Genesis 49:26 but see under the word הוֹר.

(2) metaph. to conceive in the mind; hence to plan, to devise any thing. Psalms 7:15, הָרָה עָמָל וְיָלַד שֶׁקֶר “he conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood;” Job 15:35; Isaiah 33:11, 59:4.

Paul הֹרָה pass. to be conceived. Job 3:3, “and (let) the night (perish, which) said הֹרָה גֶבֶר there is a man child conceived.” Well explained by Schultens, “Inducitur nox illa (in qua Jobus conceptus sit) quasi conscia mysterii et exultans ob spem prolis virilis.”

It is altogether without ground that some have also ascribed to this verb, the signification of bringing forth, appealing to 1 Chronicles 4:17, וַתַּהַר אֶת־מִרְיָם, for all that the passage shews is that the mention of the birth is omitted.

Poel, inf. absol. הֹרוֹ Isaiah 59:13, i.q. Kal No. 2.

The derived nouns are הֵרוֹן, הָרִי, הֵרָיוֹן [and the following]
