Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָגַן only in Niph. according to the Ch. use, to be shut up, to remain shut up. Ruth 1:13, הֲלָהֵן תֵּעָנֵנָה “would ye therefore shut yourselves up?” for תֵּעָגֵנָּה, compare Isaiah 60:4. LXX. κατασχεθήσεσθε. According to Kimchi עגונה is a woman who remains at home, and lives without a husband.
