Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1)  to shine. Jerem. 5:28, שָֽׁמְנוּ עָֽשְׁתוּ “they are fat (and) shine;” as the skin shines with fatness.

(2) to make shining, to fabricate, to form. Comp. חָלַק. See the derivatives עָשׁוֹת, עֶשֶׁת. From the idea of forming

(3) it is applied to the mind which forms any thing in thought.

Hithpael, to recall to mind, recogito (as well given by the Vulg.), followed by לְ Jonah 1:6. See the Chald., and the derived nouns, עֶשְׁתּוֹן, עַשְׁתּוּת.
