Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 I. [זָקַק] verb refine, purify ** perhaps properly strain or filter through, compare Job 36:27; Isaiah 25:6. (Aramaic זְקַק; perhaps kindred with Assyrian za‡i‡u, wind, Asrb Annals vi. 64and Aramaic , זִיקָּא violent wind, violent rain with whirlwind) —

Qal Imperfect 3 masculine plural יָזֹ֫קּוּ Job 28:1 object זָהָב, Job 36:27 object מָטָר (see Di).

Pi`el Perfect וְזִקַּק consecutive Malachi 3:3 ("" וְטִהַר) figurative, of purifying sons of Levi, like gold and silver כְּזָהָב etc.

Pu`al Participle מְזֻקָּק refined, of gold 1 Chronicles 28:18, of silver 1 Chronicles 29:4: Psalm 12:7 (שׁבעתים׳מ); of settled wines שְׁמָרִים מְזֻקָּקִים Isaiah 25:6.

II. זקק (Late Hebrew זָקַק bind, fetter, Aramaic זְקַק id.; compare (perhaps from idea of restraint) Arabic , Aramaic , זִיקָּא, זִיקוּקָא, Ethiopic all = (wine-) skin, etc.; also Late Hebrew זִיקָה, obligation; Aramaic ring).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1)  to tie fast, to bind (Chald. זְקַק id.), whence זִקִּים and אֲזִקִּים bonds. [This meaning in Thes. is wholly excluded.]

(2) to squeeze through a strainer, to strain, hence to refine

(a) wine (see Pual, comp. Arab. زَقُّ wine newly pressed out).

(b) metals, Job 28:1. With this signification agree σάκκος, σάκος, sackcloth, a strainer; σακκέω, σακκεύω σακκίζω; Lat. saccus, saccare; Hebr. שַׂק; and the same stock is found in feihen, feigen, feigern, fickern, properly used of metals.

(3) to pour, to pour out, in a general sense, like the French couler, and the Latin colare, Job 36:27.

Piel זִקַּק to refine, to purify gold, Malachi 3:3.

Pual, to be refined, used of wine, Isaiah 25:6 of metal, 1 Chronicles 28:18, 29:4 Psalms 12:7.

Hence זִקִּים No. II. [In Thes. derived from זָנַק.]
