Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עַכָּבִישׁ a spider, Job 8:4; Isaiah 59:5 (Arabic عَنْكَبوُثُ, Chaldee עַכּוּבִיתָא). It seems to be compounded of the verb עכשׁ, Arab. عكش to weave (as a spider), and عَكْبُ [עָכַב] agile, swift as if agile weaver, compare German Spinne, from spinning, and the Gr. ἀράχνη from the Phœnicio-Shemitic אָרַג to weave.
