Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָבָא unused in Kal, i.q. חָבָה to hide, compare the kindred roots חָפָא, חָפַף. Arab. خبأ, Eth. ኅበአ፡ to hide; also خبا for خبو to put out fire, properly to hide; Conj. X. to hide oneself.

Niphal, to hide oneself, to lie hid. Genesis 3:10; Judges 9:5; Job 29:8, “when the youths saw me they hid themselves,” i.e. they gave place to me out of respect and modesty; verse 10 Job 29:10, “the voice of the princes hid itself,” that is, they were silent, held their peace. Followed by בְּ Joshua 10:16; 2 Samuel 17:9, and אֶל 1 Samuel 10:22. With an inf. following, it must be rendered by an adverb (like λανθάνειν with part.) Genesis 31:27, לָמָּה נַחְבֵּאתָ לִבְרֹחַ “why hast thou fled away secretly?”

Pual, id. pr. to be forced to hide oneself, Job 24:4.

Hiphil, to hide, Joshua 6:17, 25 Joshua 6:25; 1 Kings 18:13; 2 Kings 6:29.
