Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חוֹחַ m.

(1) [In Thes. this noun is rightly referred to the root חָנַח] a thorn, a thorn-bush, Job 31:40; Proverbs 26:9; 2 Kings 14:9. Plur. חוֹחִים Song of Solomon 2:2 and with ו moveable, חֲוָחִים 1 Samuel 13:6, thorn-bushes, thickets.

(2) i.q. חָח a hook, a ring, put through the nostrils of the larger fishes after they were caught, which were then again put into the water, Job 40:26.

(3) an instrument of a similar kind used for binding captives, 2 Chronicles 33:11 comp. Amos 4:2. (In the cognate languages occur the words خَوْخُ, ܚܰܘܚܐܳ, prunus spinosa, and also there are in Hebrew the cognate words חָח and חֲחִי. No verb of a suitable signification can be found, and the noun itself appears to be primitive, sometimes following the analogy of verbs עו֞, sometimes עע֞ and לה֞, comp. אָח a brother, see Lehrg. p. 602.)
