Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָגַב fut. יַעְגַּב. The native power is that of breathing and blowing, i.q. cogn. אָהַב No. 1; whence עוּגָב a pipe, which is blown. This is also applied to the more violent affections of the mind, especially love between the sexes; to love, especially licentiously and voluptuously; followed by an acc. and עַל Ezekiel 23:5, seq. Part. עֹגְבִים lovers, Jeremiah 4:30. (Cogn. אָהַב ἀγαπάω. Arab. عَجبَ IV. to please any one (used of a thing); Conj. I. to be glad, to wonder; also, to be pleasant, agreeable.) Hence עוּגָב, and the two nouns which follow.
