פָּרַע

(1)  to loose, to let go. (Syr. ܦܪܰܥ id. Compare the roots, beginning with פר under the word פָּרַד). Hence

(a) to remit a penalty, Ezekiel 24:14.

(b) to overlook, to reject as counsel, admonition, Proverbs 1:25, 4:15 8:33 13:18 15:32.

(c) to let the reins loose to any one, to let go unbridled. Part. pass. פָּרוּעַ lawless, unbridled, Exodus 32:25.

(2) to make naked (from the idea of loosening, casting off, the garments), e.g. the head, Numbers 5:18, specially by shaving, Levit. 10:6 21:10. Part. פָּרוּעַ made naked, naked, Leviticus 13:45. (Chald. and Talm. id.)

(3) to begin, ἄρχομαι (from the idea of loosing and opening, compare הֵחֵל), hence to go before. (Arab. فرع to be on high, to be highest, to surpass others; but the primary idea is that of going before, and not that of height). Judges 5:2, בִּפְרֹעַ פְּרָעוֹת בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל well rendered by the LXX. Cod. Alex. and Theod. ἐν τῷ ἄρξασθαι ἀρχηγούς, etc., “which (war) the princes of Israel began,” pr. “went before in,” placed themselves in the front of the battle (daß fich an die Spiße geftellt die Fürften). Opp. to הִתְנַדֵּב הָעָם the people followed willingly.

Niphal, pass. of Kal No. 1, c, to become unbridled, lawless, Proverbs 29:18.

Hiphil

(1) i.q. Kal No. 1, to loose, i.e. to dismiss from work, to cause to leave off, followed by מִן Exodus 5:4. (Arab. فرغ I. IV. to be free from labour).

(2) causat. of Kal No. 1, c, to make unbridled, lawless, 2 Chronicles 28:19.
