Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עִיט (or עוּט Hiphil), to press upon, to rush violently upon any person or thing. (Kindred to the roots עוּשׁ, עוּת. Syr. ܙܶܬܥܰܝܶܛ to be indignant, to rush upon any one; ܥܝܰܛܙܳ indignation, wrath. Arab. غاظ to be indignant, عيظ rage, anger.) Const. followed by בְּ 1 Samuel 25:14, וַיָּעַט בָּהֶם “he flew upon them,” i.e. stormed at them; followed by אֶל 1 Samuel 15:19, וַתַּעַט אֶל הַשָּׁלָל “(wherefore) didst thou fly upon the spoil;” and 1 Samuel 14:32 in קרי (which alone is the true reading), וַיַּעַט הָעָם אֶל הַשָּׁלָל “the people rushed upon the spoil.” As to the form in both of these places, I have no doubt but that וַיַּעַט is the same as וַיָּעַט 1 Samuel 25:14, just like וַתַּחַשׁ Job 31:5, for וַתָּחַשׁ and he hastened; and יַחַד Proverbs 27:17, for יָחַד, יָחֵד; perhaps in these forms there is Dag. forte occultum (in the Chaldee manner). I formerly (see on Isaiah 22:17) referred these forms to the root עָטָה (and this has been followed by Winer in his Lexicon), in the sense of laying hold, and seizing, comparing the Arab. عطا, in which however the only notion is that of taking, receiving.
