Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חִבֵּל occurs once, Proverbs 23:34. The form implies it to be intensitive for חֹבֵל or חֵבֶל a cord. [See note on this word.] A large rope of a ship, Schiffstau, is to be understood; perhaps it is especially a cable, and thus the expression may be very fitly understood: “thou shalt be as one lying בְּרֹאשׁ חִבֵּל on the top, i.e. at the end of a rope” (a cable): in the other hemistich there is, “one who lies down in the heart of the sea.” I formerly understood it to mean a mast, so called from its ropes (חֵבֶל), but examples are wanting of denominative nouns of this form. [In Thes. Gesenius has reconsidered this word, and given mast as its probable meaning. Prof. Lee suggests wave, billow, apparently without etymological grounds.] Ewald’s conjecture (Heb. Gram. p. 240), that Hades, Orcus, is intended, as destroying, (see Piel No. II), will not be adopted by many.
