Qal Perfect 3 feminine singular כָּֽהֲתָה Deuteronomy 34:7; Imperfect יִכְהֶה Isaiah 42:4; 3 feminine singular תִּכְהֶה Zechariah 11:17; וַתֵּ֫כַהּ Job 17:7; וַתִּכְהֶיןָ Genesis 27:1; Infinitive absolute כָּהֹה Zechariah 11:17; — grow dim, of eye Genesis 27:1 (J), Deuteronomy 34:7; Job 17:7; of violent putting out of eye Zechariah 11:17 (twice in verse); he shall not grow dim Isaiah 42:4, of servant of ׳י under figure of lamp or fire (see Kay Che De), or grow faint (compare Di).

Brit. ed. 9, xix. 727; We Skizzen iii. 130 ff., 167; Now Archaeology ii. 89f.; Phoenician כהן is priest, כהנת priestess).
