Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

רְאוּבֵן (“see, i.e. behold, a son!” although the author of the book of Genesis, Genesis 29:32, seems so to speak of this name as if it were for רָאוּ (for רָאוּי) בְּעָנְיִי “provided for my affliction,” compare the root No. 2, letter e, [there is nothing in the sacred text to interfere with the simple etymology of this word]), pr.n. Reuben, the eldest son of Jacob, (although deprived of the right of primogeniture, Genesis 49:4), and the ancestor of the tribe of the same name; as to their location beyond Jordan, see Numbers 32:33, seqq.; Joshua 13:15.

[Patron. רְאוּבֵנִי Numbers 26:7, etc.]
