Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

זָרַב unused in Kal, i.q. Syr. ܙܪܰܒ to make narrow. [In Thes. many meanings which have been proposed for this root, are discussed; that regarded by Gesenius as most probable, is to perish, to be dissipated. In Corr. Gesenius compares Ch. Ithpeal to pour out, to flow off, or away; whence זִרְבּוּב gutter; and by transpos. מַרְזַב; Arab. مرزب channel.] It once occurs in

Pual, used of rivers, בְּעֵת יְזֹרְבוּ at the time when they become narrow [“what time they flow off, they fail, i.e. when the waters flow off, the streams dry up”], Job 6:17. Rightly compared with Arabic مِرْزَابُ a narrow channel.
