Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

פָּאָה a root not used in Kal, which had, I have no doubt, the signification, to blow, like the kindred פָּהָה, פָּיָה also פּוֹא, פּוּהַּ, פּוּחַ, all of which are onomatopoetic, and imitate the sound of blowing. Hence ἅπ. λεγόμ.

Hiphil, Deuteronomy 32:26, אַפְאֵיהֶם “I will blow them away,” i.e. scatter them as with the wind. LXX. διασπερῶ αὐτούς. I formerly compared Arab, فَأَا, which has the signification of splitting, cleaving, i.q. قطع and شَقَّ; but I rely more on the internal nature and mutual relationship of roots, than on the Arabic usage, however suitable.

[Hence the following word; also in Thes. פֶּה and its derivatives.]
