Latin elumbis, delumbare for debilitate); hence מָחַץ מָתְנֵי פ׳ “to crush any one’s loins,” i.e. to crush him wholly, Deuteronomy 33:11 compare Ezekiel 21:11 tottering loins, used of a man nearly falling, Psalms 69:24. Wherein it differs from the word יָרֵךְ thigh, see under that word.

(Arab. مَتْنَانِ and Syr. ܡܰܬܢܳܬܳܐ id. more rarely there is also used the sing. مَتْنُ one side of the loins or lower back, protuberant with flesh and nerves).
