Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 I. [כָּהָה] verb be or grow dim, faint (Late Hebrew id.; Aramaic כְּהָא; compare Arabic be , i.e. weak, cowardly) —

Qal Perfect 3 feminine singular כָּֽהֲתָה Deuteronomy 34:7; Imperfect יִכְהֶה Isaiah 42:4; 3 feminine singular תִּכְהֶה Zechariah 11:17; וַתֵּ֫כַהּ Job 17:7; וַתִּכְהֶיןָ Genesis 27:1; Infinitive absolute כָּהֹה Zechariah 11:17; — grow dim, of eye Genesis 27:1 (J), Deuteronomy 34:7; Job 17:7; of violent putting out of eye Zechariah 11:17 (twice in verse); he shall not grow dim Isaiah 42:4, of servant of ׳י under figure of lamp or fire (see Kay Che De), or grow faint (compare Di).

Pi`el Perfect 3 feminine singular וְכִהֲתָה consecutive Ezekiel 21:12 (subject כָּלרֿוּחַ; "" וְנָמֵס כָּללֵֿב) grow faint (Pi`el intransitive, Ges§ 52 k, Kö i. 187; but read perhaps כָּֽהֲתָה).

כהן (√ of following; meaning dubious, see Dr 2 Samuel 8:18; Arabic verb is divine, and (Qor 52:29) is a seer, the organ (mostly) of a jinn, rarely of a god: the and the כֹּהֵן must have been originally identical (both alike being guardians of an oracle, at a sanctuary); but their functions diverged: the gradually lost his connection with the sanctuary, and sank to be a mere diviner; the כהן acquired fuller sacrificial functions: see RS Enc. Brit. ed. 9, xix. 727; We Skizzen iii. 130 ff., 167; Now Archaeology ii. 89f.; Phoenician כהן is priest, כהנת priestess).
