Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

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

(1) to lead, to bring, e.g. persons, Psalms 60:11, 108:11.

(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.

Hophal הוּבַל

(1) to be brought, led, Psalms 45:15, 16 Psalms 45:16; Isaiah 53:7, 55:12 Jeremiah 11:19.

(2) to be brought, carried, Isaiah 18:7; Hosea 10:6, 12:2 to be borne, as to the grave, Job 10:19, 21:30, 32 Job 21:32.

Derivatives, see Kal No. 1, and Hiphil No. 3.

[“יָבַל to rejoice, an onomatopoetic root, unused; hence יוֹבֵל, יוּבָל II.”]
