בָּטָה i.q. בָּדַד No. II. βαττολογεῖν, blaterare, to babble, to talk idly; fchwaßen, to talk rashly and inconsiderately, an onomatop. word, like the Greek and Latin. Part. בּוֹטֶה babbler, idle talker, Proverbs 12:18.

Piel, id. Leviticus 5:4; Psalms 106:33. In each of these places the addition of בִּשְׂפָתַיִם increases the force of this phrase, see שְׂפָתַיִם.

Deriv. מִבְטָא.
