חָרָה fut יֶחֱרֶה apoc. יִחַר.
(1) to burn, to be kindled, cogn. to חָרַר. Always spoken of anger, concerning which these expressions are used
(a) חָרָה אַפּוֹ, Exodus 22:23 followed by בְּ against any one, Genesis 30:2, 44:18 Job 32:2, Job 32:3, 42:7 less often followed by אֶל Numbers 24:10 עַל Zechariah 10:3.
(b) without אַף: חָרָה לוֹ “(anger) was kindled to him;” he was angry, Genesis 31:36, 34:7 1 Samuel 15:11; 2 Samuel 19:43.
(c) חָרָה בְעֵינָיו “(anger) was kindled in his eyes;” since anger is visible in the kindling of eyes, and inflamed countenance, Genesis 31:35, 45:5.
These expressions sometimes rather denote sorrow than anger; and hence they are rendered by the LXX. by the verb λυπέομαι, as Genesis 4:5; Jonah 4:4, Jonah 4:9; Nehemiah 5:6 compare as to the connection of the two ideas זָעַם Niphal, and עָצַב Hithpael.
