מוֹרֶה m. pr. part. Hiphil, of the root יָרָה
(1) a shooter, darter, archer.
(2) the early rain, see the root Hiphil No. 1, 2.
(3) one teaching, Isaiah 9:14; 2 Kings 17:28 a teacher, in plur. used of prophets, Isaiah 30:20.- Job 36:22, “behold God (is) great, and we know him (not), מִי כָמֹהוּ מוֹרֶה who (is) a teacher like him?” i.e. is wise, and has endued us with wisdom? (comp. Job 35:11, מַלְּפֵנוּ מִבַּהֲמוֹת אָרֶץ וּמֵעוֹף הַשָּׂמַיִם יְחַכְּמֵנוּ). LXX. δυνάστης, perhaps from the Aramean use of ܡܳܪܐܶ, ܡܳܪܝܳܐ lord; and it may be inquired by etymologists whether this very word, and its signification of lord, may not come from the Hebrew מוֹרֶה a teacher. Others regard מוֹרֶה h.l. as i.q. מוֹרָה Psal. 9:21, and מוֹרָא fear, the object of fear and reverence.
