Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָרוּץ (Kametz pure, see Amos 1:3), part. pass. from the root חָרַץ to cut into, to sharpen.

(1)  cut in, dug, hence the ditch of a fortified city, Daniel 9:25. (Chald. חָרִיץ.) Compare the root No. 1, b, where the verb נִבְנְתָה can only be referred to חָרוּץ by zeugma.

(2) sharpened (see the root No. 2), hence as a poet. epith. for a threshing wain, an agricultural instrument used for rubbing out corn; more fully מוֹרַג חָרוּץ a sharpened threshing instrument, Isaiah 41:15 and hence used without the substantive in the same sense, Isaiah 28:27; Job 41:22. Plur. חֲרוּצוֹת Amos 1:3. As to the form of this instrument, see מוֹרַג.

(3) something decided, hence judgment (see the root No. 3). Joel 4:14, בְּעֵמֶק הֶחָרוּץ “in the valley of judgment,” i.e. of punishment. LXX. ἐν τῆωΟ κοιλάδι τῆς δίκης.

(4) poetically used for gold, Psalms 68:14; Proverbs 3:14, 8:10 16:16 Zechariah 9:3 so called either from the sharp (bright) colour (see חָמַץ No. 3 ), or else from its being eagerly desired by men (see חָרַץ No. 4,. Arab. حرص to be eager, to covet), or else perhaps for some other reason; [“properly that which is dug out”]. It seems to answer to the Gr. χρυσός.

חָרוּץ (of a form which regularly receives dagesh, for חַרּוּץ

(1)  eager (see the root No. 4, b), hence diligent, sedulous. Pl. חָרוּצִים Proverbs 10:4, 12:24 13:4 21:5.

(2) [Haruz], pr.n. of the father-in-law of king Manasseh, 2 Kings 21:19.
