Hiph`il Imperfect אַףבְּֿרִי יַטְרִיחַ עָ֑ב Job 37:11 he burdeneth with moisture the cloud(s).
טָרַח unused in Kal. Arab. طرح Conj. I. IV. VIII. to cast down, to throw.
Hiphil, Job 37:11, אַף־בְּרִי יַטְרִיחַ עָב “also upon the showers (God) casts down a thick cloud;” words exhibiting the image of the clouds themselves being cast down (or seeming to be cast down) by the weight of the rain in them (Wolkenbruch). But the Arab. طرح followed by على signifies also, to cast upon, to place upon something (compare טֹרַח a load); so that it may be translated, “he loads the cloud with a shower.” Symm. ἐπιβρίσει.
