Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָוָה a root unused in Kal.

(1) properly to breathe (see with regard to this power in the syllable הב, אב, או under the roots אָהַב, אָוָה, הָבַל), comp. Piel. Hence

(2) to live, i.q. חָיָה, compare the noun חַוָּה.

Piel חִוָּה prop. to breathe out, hence to declare, to shew, a word used in poetry instead of the prosaic הִגִּיד (Chald. and Syr. חַיִּיִ, ܚܰܘܺܝ, Arabic transp. وحى, like צִוָּה Arab. وصى). Job 32:10, 17 Job 32:17. Constr. followed by a dative of pers., Psalms 19:3 more often an acc., Job 32:6, with suff. 15:17 36:2. Derivatives אַחְוָה [חַוָּה, חִוִּי, יְחַוְאֵל].
