Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּרַע to bend, to bow, used intrans. of the knee, fich beugen (vom Knie). (A kindred root is כָּנַע, which see. [“Samar.  to lie down.”] Just as from כנע is κνήμη leg, so from כרע is כָּרָע crus, leg. In Arabic there are only traces found of the original signification; as to drink stooping, prop. to bow oneself to drink. With the letters transposed, ركع to be bowed down through age, or while at prayer.) Hence Isaiah 45:23, תִּכְרַע כָּל־בֶּרֶךְ “every knee shall bow.” Hence used of a man, כָּרַע עַל בִּרְכַּיִם to bow upon one’s knees, Judges 7:5, Judges 7:6; 1 Kings 8:54; 2 Kings 1:13; Ezra 9:5.-To bend one’s knees, or to fall upon one’s knees, is also used of those

(a) who do reverence to a king, or worship God, in which sense it is joined with הִשְׁתַּחֲוָה, Psalms 95:6. Followed by לְ of pers. Esther 3:2, Isaiah 45:23 לִפְנֵי Psalms 22:30, 72:9.

(b) those who sink down for want of strength, when it is commonly followed by נָפַל. Job 4:4, בִּרְכַּיִם כֹּרְעוֹת “falling (failing, or bowing) knees.” Psal. 20:9, כָּֽרְעוּ וְנָֽפְלוּ “they are bowed down and fall.” 2 Kings 9:24, “he sank down in his chariot.” Isaiah 10:4, 46:1, Isaiah 46:2, 65:12 Judges 5:27.

(c) those who are about to lie down on the ground, Genesis 49:9, כָּרַע רָבַץ “he stooped, and lay down.” Numbers 24:9.

(d) used of parturient women (from the custom still existing in Ethiopia, where women bring forth kneeling, see Ludolfi Hist. Ethiop. i. 15), 1 Samuel 4:19 also used of a hind, Job 39:3.-Rarely used of those who bow down with the whole person (comp. Arab.). 2 Chronicles 7:3, וַיִּבְרְעוּ אַפַּיִם אַרְצָה “and they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground.” Hence כָּרַע עַל אִשָּׁה compressit feminam, Job 31:10 compare incurvare, Martial. xi. 44; inclinare, Juvenal. ix. 26; x. 224.

Hiphil

(1) to cause to bow down, to prostrate, enemies, Psalms 17:13, 18:40 78:31.

(2) to depress, i.e. to afflict, any one, Judges 11:35. Hence
