Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נָסָה not used in Kal pr. i.q. Arab. نشا to smell, to try by the smell, to try. The primary idea differs from that of בָּחַן, which is to try by the touch, as if to prove by a touch-stone.

Piel נִסָּה

(1) to try, to prove any one. 1 Kings 10:1, “the queen of Sheba came, לְנַסֹּתוֹ בְּחִידוֹת to prove him with hard questions;” to examine the wisdom of Solomon, 2 Chronicles 9:1; Daniel 1:12, 14. Specially

(a) God is said to try or prove men by adversity, in order to prove their faith, Genesis 22:1; Exodus 16:4; Deuteronomy 8:2, 16 13:4 Judges 2:22 compare πειράζειν in New Test.

(b) men on the other hand are said to prove or tempt God, when they doubt as to his power and aid, Exodus 17:2, Exodus 17:7; Deuteronomy 6:16; Psalms 78:18, 41 Psalms 78:41, 56 Psalms 78:56; Isaiah 7:12, “I will not ask, neither will I tempt Jehovah.”

(2) to try, to attempt, make a trial, to venture.

(a) absol. 1 Samuel 17:39, כִּי־לֹא נִסִּיתִי “for I have made no trial.” Judges 6:39.

(b) followed by an inf. Deuteronomy 4:34, 28:56.

(c) followed by an acc. of the thing, Job 4:2, הֲנִסָּה דָבָר אֵלֶיךָ תִלְאֶה “can one attempt a word with thee? wilt thou take it ill?”
