Jeff Brenner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
כָּבַר unused in Kal
(1) pr. to bind together, to plait, to braid, i.q. כָּבַל and the roots therewith compared (also כָּמַר No. II). Hence כְּבִיר plaited mattress, כְּבָרָה sieve, מַכְבֵּר coarse cloth, מִכְבָּר net work. Like many other words of twisting, plaiting, binding (גָּדַל, חוּל, קָשַׁר, קָוָה), it is applied to strength and magnitude. Hence
(2) to be great, to be much, also to be long, continual, see כְּבָר, כִּבְרָה. (Arabic كَبُرَ to be great, powerful, كَبِرَ to grow up, to be advanced in years, Syr. ܟܒܰܪ to increase, to grow up, Eth. ከብረ፡ to be glorious, illustrious.)
Hiphil, to make much, to multiply, Job 35:16. Part. מַכְבִּיר subst. (of the form מַשְׁחִית) abundance, with לְ prefixed, לְמַכְבֹּיר i.q. לָרֹב plentifully, much. Job 36:31.
Derived nouns, see under Kal No. 1, also כַּבִּיר and those which immediately follow.
