Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּלַם unused in Kal, pr. to wound; like the Arab. كلم Conj. I. II.; comp. Sansc. klam, to be exhausted, fatigued, whence perhaps is the Lat. calumnia. A similar figurative use is certainly found in Hebrew, [“like many other words implying, to pierce, to prick, to cut, such as נָקַב, גִּדֵּף”].

Hiphil הִכְּלִים and הֶכְלִים (1 Samuel 25:7).

(1) to reproach, pr. to hurt some one, 1 Samuel 20:34.

(2) to treat shamefully, to injure, 1 Samuel 25:7; Judges 18:7.

(3) to put any one to shame, Job 11:3; Proverbs 25:8; Psalms 44:10. This verb is stronger than the synonym בּוֹשׁ Hi. הוֹבִישׁ; comp. Isaiah 45:16, 16 Isaiah 45:16; Jeremiah 31:19, and see Reimarus de Differentiis, vcc. Hebr. Diss. I. p. 67, sq.

Hophal

(1) to be hurt, injured, 1 Samuel 25:15.

(2) to be made ashamed (through disappointed hope), Jeremiah 14:3 comp. Niph.

Niphal

(1) to be insulted, disgraced, 2 Samuel 10:5; 1 Chronicles 19:5.

(2) to be put to shame, befchämt daftehn, zu Schanden werden, Jeremiah 31:19 often used of one who fails in his endeavours, Psalms 35:4, 40:15 70:3 74:21 also to be ashamed, i.q. בּוֹשׁ, Numbers 12:14 followed by מִן of cause, Ezekiel 16:27, 54 Ezekiel 16:54 followed by כּ, Psalms 69:7.
