(2) to break in, to pry in, hence to seek, compare בָּקַר No. 3. In Kal once found, Proverbs 11:27 see Piel.

Piel שִׁחַר to seek, a word altogether poetic. Followed by an acc. Job 7:21; Proverbs 7:15, 8:17 and לְ with an inf. Job 24:5; Proverbs 13:24, אֹהֲבוֹ שִׁחֲרוֹ מוּסָר “he who loveth (his son) seeks (i.e. as it were carefully prepares) chastisement for him.” The suff. must be regarded as in the dative. To seek God is

(a) to long after him, Psalms 63:2; Isaiah 26:9.

(b) to turn oneself to him, Hosea 5:15; Psalms 78:34. Followed by אֶל Job 8:5.
