Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דָּגַר like the Ch. דְּגַר to brood as a bird over her eggs or young; pr. apparently to cover (see under דָּגָה, דָּגָל ). Jeremiah 17:11, קֹרֵא דָגָר וְלֹא יָלָד “the partridge sits upon eggs which she has not laid; (to which is similar), he who gathers riches but not by right.” LXX. πέροδιξ συνήγαγεν ἃ οὐκ ἔτεκεν. Isaiah 34:15, of a serpent brooding its young, not eggs. Vulg. in each place, fovere. The incorrect remarks of J. D. Michaëlis as to this root, have been already well refuted by Rosenm. on Bochart, Hieroz. ii. 632, seq.
