Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֹרַח pl. אֳרָחוֹת constr. אָרְחוֹת with suff. אָרְתֹתַי, אָרְחֹתֶיךָ, אָרְחֹתָם, instead of which there are often found in MSS. and printed editions אֹרְחֹתַי, אֹרְחֹתֶיךָ, אֹרְחֹתָם (see J. H. Mich. on Job 13:27) comm. (m. Proverbs 2:15, comp. Job 6:18, 19 Judges 5:19. Proverbs 15:19), a poetical word, way, path, i.q. דֶּרֶךְ. (Ch. אֹרַח, Syr. ܐܘܽܪܚܐܳ, Sam. Dan 8:1-27 id.). Genesis 49:17; Judges 5:6 Psal. 19:6 אָרְחוֹת יַמִּים “paths of the seas,” Psalms 8:9 compare ὑγρὰ κέλευθα, Hom. Il. ά, 312; אֹרַח חַיִּים “the way to life or happiness,” Proverbs 5:6. Hence

(b) mode, manner; Genesis 18:11, חָדַל לִהְיוֹת לְשָׂרָח אֹרָח בַּנָּשִׁים “it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women,” an euphemism for the menses. Comp. Genesis 31:35.

(c) any one’s way, for his condition and lot (Germ. wie es ihm geht); Job 8:13; Proverbs 1:19.

(d) poet. way is used for traveller, or travellers, Job 31:32. Pl. אָרְחוֹת תֵּמָא “travellers of Tema,” bands of the Temaites, Job 6:19.

אֹרַח pl. אָרְחָן Ch. id., Daniel 4:34, 5:23.
