Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׂקַד , once found, Lamentations 1:14 in Niphal. According to the Hebrew interpreters, to be bound, tied to (used of a yoke). The verbs עָקַד, אָבַד, appear to be cognates, the aspirates being related to the sibilants, see שׂ p. 782. The Targ. has made heavy. Several MSS. have נשׁקד, which is expressed by the LXX., Vulg., Syr., but it is contrary to the sense.
