Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׁעָה to look (kindred to שָׂכָה No. 1, which see); hence, absol. to look around (for help), 2 Samuel 22:42. Specially

(a) followed by אֶל to regard any one (his prayers [offerings, rather]), Genesis 4:4,.

(b) to look to any one for aid, followed by אֶל Isaiah 17:8 עַל Isaiah 17:7, 31:1 בְּ Exodus 5:9.

(c) followed by מִן and מֵעַל to look away from, to turn the eyes from anything, to let it alone, Job 7:19, 14:6 Isaiah 22:4.

Hiphil, i.q. Kal, letter c, followed by מִן Psa. 39:14, הָשַׁע מִמֶּנִּי “turn thy eyes from me.” The form הָשַׁע is imp. apoc. for הַשְׁעֵה, whence הַשַׁע, and, by lengthening the former syllable (like יִרֶב, יֵרֶב; יִכְהֶה, יֵכַהּ), הָשַׁע. There is therefore no need to refer this form to a root עע֞, or that the vowels should be changed. Another הָשַׁע see under שָׁעַע Hiphil.

Hithpael הִשְׁתָּעָה

(1) to look around (for help), Isaiah 41:10.

(2) i.q. הִתְרָאָה letter b, to look upon one another (sc. in fighting, or rather in disputing), Isaiah 41:23.-Derivative, Ch. שָׁעָה.


שָׁעָה i.q. Syr. ܫܥܳܐ, Heb. שָׁעַע to be smeared together, to be smeared over (as the eye), Isaiah 32:3.

שָׁעָה emphat. שַׁעֲתָא, שַׁעְתָּא Ch. f. a moment of time, pr. the twinkling of an eye, Augenblick (Arabic سَاعَةُ a moment; also, an hour, compare Dutch Stondt, which signifies both). בַּהּ שַׁעְתָּא at the same moment, i.e. immediately, Daniel 3:6, 15 4:30 5:5 but 4:16, כְּשָׁעָה חֲדָא “for a short time.”
