Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָרַף fut יֶחֱרַף (Job 27:6).

(1) to gather, to pluck off. (Arab. خرف. With this accord the Lat. carpo, and (with a prefixed sibilant) German fcarp, fcharf. The primary syllable רף has also in other roots the signification of plucking (rapiendi), as גָּרַף, זָרַף, טָרַף, see רָפָא ). Hence חֹרֶף, خريف the time when fruits are plucked, autumn, and from this

(2) denom. to pass the autumn (and winter), to winter, χειμάζω. Isaiah 18:6, וְבָל־בֶּהֱמַת הָאָרֶץ עָלָיו תֶּחֱרַף “and all the beasts of the field shall winter upon it,” as rightly rendered by Chald., Jerome, Luth. Opp. to קוּץ to pass the summer (from קַיִץ). The Arabic verb خرف has also many significations derived from خريف and denominative of it.

(3) figuratively, to carp at, to scorn, to reproach. Psalms 69:10, 119:42 Proverbs 27:11; Job 27:6, לֹא־יֶחֱרַף לְבָבִי מִיָמַי “my heart (my conscience) shall not reproach me as to any day of my life;” i.e. I do not repent of any day.

Piel חֵרֵף

(1) i.e. Kal No. 3, to reproach, to scorn, 1 Samuel 17:26, 36 1 Samuel 17:36; 2 Kings 19:23; Psalms 42:11, 102:9, etc.; followed by לְ 2 Chronicles 32:17 בְּ 2 Samuel 23:9. חֶרֶף חֶרְפָּה Psalms 79:12, 89:52.

(2) followed by נֶפֶשׁ to scorn life, to count one’s life as of little worth, i.e. to expose one’s life to very great danger, especially in battle, παραβάλλεσθαι. Judges 5:18, זְבֻלוֹן עַס חֵרֵף נַפְשׁוֹ לָמוּת “Zebulun, the people despised their life (and cast it away) unto death.” The Arabs make a similar use of the verbs اهان, بذل, عرض see my Comment on Isaiah 53:12. [It is not to be thought that Isaiah 53:12, speaks of merely exposing one’s life to danger; it speaks of Him who laid down his life that he might take it again.]

Niphal, pass. of Piel No. 2, to be betrothed, speaking of a woman; prop. abandoned, i.e. given up, or delivered to a husband. Levit. 19:20, “a maidservant נֶחֱרֶפֶת לְאִישׁ who is betrothed to a husband.” So in the Talmud חֲרוּפָה is i.q. אֲרוּסָה espoused. There is a similar use made of the Arabic verbs بذل, رخص properly to esteem lightly, and then to deliver a wife to a husband; see Schultensii Opp. Min., p. 145, seq.

The derived nouns follow, with the exception of חָרִיף.
