Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָנַךְ

(1)  to make narrow, and intrans. to be narrow, enge fehn, i.q. חָנַק, עָנַק, which see. Hence חֵךְ for חֵנֶךְ, Arab. حَنَكُ jaws; compare עֲנָק a neck, (from the kindred root עָנַק, ) & הָנַק to strangle.

(2) denom. from חֵךְ, حَنَكُ jaws, palate, properly ἐμβύειν, to put something into the mouth, to give to be tasted; then by a common metaphor, in which taste is applied to understanding (see טַעַם and Job 12:11)

(a) to imbue some one with any thing, to instruct, to train up (compare نشع to put something into one’s mouth, also to instruct, to train). Proverbs 22:6, “train up a child according to his way,” as to his manners and habits. It is thus applied to inanimate things, hence

(b) to initiate, a house (that is to dedicate, or to commence to use). Deuteronomy 20:5, the temple, 1 Kings 8:63; 2 Chronicles 7:5. (Arabic حَنَكَ to understand. As to the meaning to perceive as ascribed to the Eth. ሐነከ፡ it does not rest upon sufficient authority; see Ludolfi Lex. Eth., page 40, whilst the additional meanings to know, to perceive by the sense, are altogether incorrect).
