Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גַּד m.

(1)  coriander seed, so called from its furrowed and striped grains; see the root גָּדַד No. 1, Exodus 16:31; Numbers 11:7 LXX., Vulg. κόριον, κορίανον, coriandrum; and so the other Eastern interpreters, except Ch., Sam.; and similar to this was the Punic usage, of which Dioscorides says (iii. 64), Αἰγύπτιοι ὄχιον, Ἄφροι (i.e. Pœni) Γοίδ.

(2) i.q. גָּד No. 1, fortune; with art., specially the divinity of Fortune, worshipped by the Babylonians and by the Jews exiled among them; elsewhere called Baal (see בַּעַל, בֵּל ), i.e. the planet Jupiter, regarded in all the East as the giver of good fortune (الاكبر السعد the greater good fortune). Isaiah 65:11. In the other hemistich, there is mentioned מְנִי, prob. the planet Venus, called in the East, the lesser good fortune; see under this word. I have treated of these religions at greater length on Isa. vol. ii. p. 283, seq.; 335, seq. Well rendered by the LXX. Τύχη. Vulg. Fortuna. Compare בַּעַל גָּד page 131, B.
