Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

רָוָה to drink largely, to be satisfied with drink (like שָׂבַע to be satisfied with food); once with fatness (which is drunk and sucked in rather than eaten), Psalms 36:9. (Aram. ܪܘܳܐ to be drunken.) Followed by an acc. Psalms 36:9, and מִן of the thing, Jeremiah 46:10, see Hiphil. Poet. it is applied to a sword drinking in blood, ibid., to persons satisfied with sexual pleasures, Proverbs 7:18.


(1) i.q. Kal, but intens. to be fully satiated, or irrigated (of the earth), Isaiah 34:7, followed by מִן; also to be drunken, said of a sword (see Syr.), ibid. verse 6.

(2) causat. to give to drink, to irrigate, e.g. fields, Psalms 65:11 followed by two acc. Isaiah 16:9, אֲרַיָּֽוֶךְ דִּמְעָתִי “I will water thee with my tears.” אֲרַיָּֽוֶךְ, the letters being transposed for אֲרַוָּיֶךְ (see Lehrg. p. 143); also to satiate any one with fat (followed by two acc.), Jerem. 31:14 sexually, Proverbs 5:19.

Hiphil, to give to drink, to water, Jeremiah 31:25; Lamentations 3:15 a field, Isaiah 55:10 to satiate (with fat), Isaiah 43:24 (compare Psalms 36:9; Jeremiah 31:14).
