Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָשַׁר fut. יֶעְשַׁר prop. to be straight (kindred to the verbs אָשַׁר, כָּשַׁר, יָשַׁר), hence to prosper, to be happy, specially to be rich, Job 15:29; Hosea 12:9. Aram. עֲתַר, ܥܬܰܪ id.

Piel, to build up, pr. to erect, from the primary meaning of the root. So once, 1 Kings 22:49 כתיב, יְהוֹשָׁפָט עִשֵּׁר אֳנִיּוֹת “Jehoshaphat built ships;” קרי עָשָׂה and so 2 Chronicles 20:36, 37 2 Chronicles 20:37. A learned writer, who has treated of this passage in Jen. Lit. Zeit. 1830, iv. p. 380, compares for the same sense, “Arab. عشر to put together, to join together, or as I prefer, to compare, to put together;” but I know of no authority for this meaning.

Hiphil

(1) to enrich, Genesis 14:23; 1 Samuel 2:7, 17:25, etc. Metaph. Psalms 65:10, רַבַּת תַּעְשְׁרֶנָּה “thou greatly enrichest it” (the earth), thou endowest it and adornest it with most beautiful gifts.

(2) intrans. to become rich (prop. to make riches, see Gramm., § 52:2 note), Psalms 49:17; Proverbs 10:4. Followed by an acc. of the thing with which one is enriched, Daniel 11:2.

Hithpael, to feign oneself rich, Proverbs 13:7.
