מָהַר

(1)  to hasten, in Kal once, Psalms 16:4.

(2) to be quick, skilful in any art or business. Arab. مهر to be diligent, acute-minded, see Pi. No. 2, and מָהִיר.

Piel מִהַר

(1) to hasten

(a) to quicken, Isaiah 5:19, to bring quickly. Genesis 18:6, מַהֲרִי שְׁלשׁ סְאִים קֶמַח “bring quickly three seahs of flour;” 1 Kings 22:9.

(b) followed by a finite verb, either with or without the copula, to do any thing quickly, where, in the western languages, the adverb quickly, speedily, would be used, 1 Samuel 17:48; Genesis 19:22, מַהֵר הִמָּלֵט “make haste, escape,” i.q. escape quickly, followed by an infinitive or gerund, Exodus 10:16; Genesis 27:20, מַה־זֶּה מִהַרְתָּ לִמְצאֹ “how then hast thou found it so quickly?” Exodus 2:18. מַהֵר adv. quickly, Judges 2:17, 23 Judges 2:23; Psalms 79:8.

(2) to be prompt, apt in any thing, Isaiah 32:4.

Niphal נִמְהַר properly to be precipitate. Job 5:13, עֲצַת נִפְתָּלִים נִמְהָֽרָה “the counsel of the cunning is headlong,” i.e. being hastily executed it is frustrated. Part. נִמְהַר

(1) headlong, rash, Isaiah 63:4.

(2) impetuous, rushing on precipitately; Germ. ungeftüm, Habakkuk 1:6.

(3) timid, precipitate in flight, Isaiah 35:4.

Derivatives, מָהִיר, מַהֵר, מְהֵרָה [pr.n. מַהֲרַי].
