Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֹרֶף m. autumn, the season in which fruits are gathered (see the root No. 1). Arabic خَرِيفُ, see Schultens on Job 29:4. It commonly includes also the winter, and thus קַיִץ וָחֹרֶף summer and autumn make up the whole year, Genesis 8:22; Psalms 74:17; Zechariah 14:8. בֵּית חֹרֶף a winter house, Amos 3:15. Metaph. used of mature age, manhood; compare Gr. ὀπώρα Pind. Isthm. ii. 8; Nem. v. 11; ὥρα, Plato. Legg. viii. p.415: auctumnus; Ovid. Met., xv. 200. Job 29:4, בִּימֵי חָרְפִּי “in the days of my maturity,” i.e. of my manly vigour; τῆς ἀκμῆς μου, the flower of my age.

[It may, I think, be questioned, whether חֹרֶף really means winter as well as autumn; the phrase קַיִץ וָחֹרֶף will not prove it by any means; see Genesis 8:22. As to Proverbs 20:4, it may signify “he will not plow by reason of the autumn,” i.e. the abundance of autumn fruits. In Job 29:4, the metaphorical use appears to arise from the autumn having been regarded as the beginning, the prime of the year, see Thes.]
