יָבַל [unused in Kal]
(1) to flow, especially copiously, and with some violence. (Arabic وَبَلَ to flow copiously, to rain, whence وَبْلُ, واَبِلُ a shower. Answering to this, is German wallen, whence Welle.) Hence יָבָל, יוּבָל, אוּבָל a river, בּוּל for יְבוּל shower, מַבּוּל a flood, deluge (in which Yod, like Nun elsewhere, is inserted in the next letter) [its omission being compensated by Dagesh].
(2) to run as a sore, whence יַבָּל having a running sore.
(3) poetically to go, to walk, like the Germ. wallen, poet. for to walk, a metaphor derived from water, comp. the French aller, which belongs to the same stock as wallen, as has been well observed by Adelung (iv. p. 1366); see Hiphil.
Hiphil הוֹבִיל (Syriac ܐܘܰܒܶܠ), causat. of No. 3, poetically for הֵבִיא

(2) to bear, to carry, as gifts, Psalms 68:30, 76:12, Zephaniah 3:10.
(3) to produce, to bring forth, as the earth. Hence יְבוּל, בּוּלּ produce, תֵּבֵל fertile or inhabited earth.
