Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קָנָה fut. יִקְנֶה; apoc. יִקֶן prop. to erect, to set upright, i.q. הֵכִין (cogn. to כּוּן, קִין; whence קָנֶה, קָנָה reed, cane); hence

(1)  to found, create [see note below] the heaven and the earth, Genesis 14:19, 22 Genesis 14:22 men, Deuteronomy 32:6; Psalms 139:13; Proverbs 8:22 (Arab. قنا i.q. خلق to create as God; see Kamûs, p. 1937).

(2) to acquire for oneself, Proverbs 4:7, 15:32 16:16 19:8 Ruth 4:9, 10 to obtain, Genesis 4:1 (Eth. ቀነየ፡ to possess, to be owner). Specially

(3) to buy (compare Lat. conciliare, for emere, Ter. Eun. iv. 4, 2), Genesis 25:10, 47:22, etc.; also to redeem (people out of captivity), Isaiah 11:11; Nehemiah 5:8.

[Note. There does not appear to be any sufficient ground for ascribing the sense of to create to this verb; in all the passages cited for that sense, to possess, appears to be the true meaning; see Dr. M’Caul’s Sermon on the Divine Sonship of the Messiah. Append.]

Niphal, to be acquired, bought, Jeremiah 32:15, 43 Jeremiah 32:43.

Hiphil, Zechariah 13:5 prob. i.q. Kal No. 3, to buy [in Thes. “to sell”]. But מַקְנֶה Ezekiel 8:3, is for מַקְנִיא exciting the jealousy or anger (of God). Hence [the following words, and קִנְיָן, מִקְנֶה, מִקְנָה, and pr.n. קְנָת]
