Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) properly in my opinion, i.q. דָּבַל to be round, to make round, whence the Talmudic זֶבֶל, זְבֻל round or globular dung, such as that of goats, or camels, Syr. and Arab. ܙܶܒܠܳ, زِْبَلةُ.

(2) to inhabit [to dwell with], (comp. דּוּר No. 2). Genesis 30:20, יִזְבְּלֵנִי “he will inhabit (together with) me,” i.e. he (my husband) will dwell with me; the idea of conjugal intercourse being conjoined: for verbs of dwelling joined with an accusative, imply dwelling together, see גּוּר, שָׁכַן.
