Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּסַף fut. יִכְסֹף

(1)  to become pale like the Ch. (More remote is the Arab. كسف and خسف to be eclipsed, as the sun or moon, to darken, as the eye, to be lessened.) Compare Niphal No. 1 and כֶּסֶף silver; hence

(2) to desire anything, followed by לְ of pers., Job 14:15 by a gerund, Psalms 17:12.

Niphal

(1) to become pale, through shame (as shame is not only marked by blushing, but also by paleness, see חָוַר and Talmud. הלבין, to put to shame, compare Comment. on Isaiah 29:22), to be put to shame. Zephaniah 2:1, הַגּוֹי לֹא נִכְסָף “a nation without shame,” impudent.

(2) i.q. Kal No. 2. Genesis 31:30; Psalms 84:3.
