Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שִׁפְרָה f.

(1)  brightness, beauty. Here, apparently, we should refer with Jo. Simonis, who has been followed by Ewald (Gr. page 92), Job 26:13, בְּרוּחוֹ שָׁמַיִם שִׁפְרָה “by his (God’s) Spirit the heavens were made brightness,” i.e. splendid, most splendid. Several interpreters have supposed שִׁפְרָה to be for שִׁפְּרָה (to make beautiful, to adorn, sc. with stars and constellations), so put that two constructions (רוּחוֹ שׁ׳ שִׁפְּרָה and בְּרוּחוֹ שָׁמַיִם שִׁפַּר) are confused (Vulg. spiritus ejus ornavit cœlos), but Dag. forte necessarium is scarcely ever found to be omitted in the letters בגדכפת.

(2) [Shiphrah], pr.n. f., Exodus 1:15.
