Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קְרַץ m. Chald., a piece; Syr. ܩܰܪܨܐܳ; see the root No. 1; in this phrase אֲכַל קַרְצֵי דִי to eat any one’s pieces; metaph. to calumniate, to slander, to act the sycophant; the same metaphor, in which, in Lat. mordere, dente carpere, dente rodere, are said of sycophants. Daniel 3:8, 6:25. (Syr. ܙܶܟܰܠ ܩܰܪܨܐܳ id. Arab. أَكَلَ لَحْمًا to eat any one’s flesh, to calumniate; and simpl. اكل IV. to calumniate; إِكْلَةُ calumny. Another mode of explaining this phrase has been proposed by Storr, Observat. ad Analog. et Synt. Ling. Hebr. p. 4, who renders it, calumniaÆ pasci, i.e. huic operam dare ad explenda animi invidi desideria.)
