Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

רָקַד to leap, to skip, Ecclesiastes 3:4. Figuratively, the phrase is used to skip for fear (compare Hiph. נָתַר Piel), Psalms 114:4, Psalms 114:6. (Syr., Pa., id. The primary idea appears to be that of trampling the ground with one’s feet, see רָקַק ).

Piel, to spring, to dance, 1 Chronicles 15:29; Isaiah 13:21; Job 21:11 used figuratively, of a chariot driven rapidly over rough ways, Nahum 3:2; Joel 2:5.

Hiphil, prop. to cause to leap, i.e. to tremble, used of the mountains, Psalms 29:6. Comp. Kal, also רָעַשׁ and נָתַר.
