Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שֶׁנְהַבִּים m. pl. ivory, 1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21 (LXX. ὀσόντες ἐλεφάντινοι. Targ. שֵׁן דְּפִיל tooth of an elephant), compounded of שֵׁן tooth, and (as was first shewn by Ag. Benary in Annal. Litt. Berol. 1831, No. 96) הָאִבִּים contr. הַבִּים, from the Sanscr. ibha-s (whence with the Arabic art. Gr. ἐλ-έφας), an elephant, which the Hebrews could only pronounce אִבָּה or אִבָּא (pl. אִבִּים). This is more suitable than what I formerly supposed, namely that שֶׁנְהַבִּים was a corruption of שֶׁנְהַפִּיל, from פִּיל elephant.
