Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1)  to sprout, to germinate. (The original idea lies in gushing forth, boiling up, a signification which lies in the syllable נכ, which is found in the roots beginning with it, as נָבַע, نبع, نبغ, نبط, نبج, and this is frequently applied, sometimes to the sense of sprouting, as نبأ, نبت sometimes to that of speaking, as נָבָא, Eth. נבב, Arab. دبس, نبص; also to the sense of rising above, as נָבָה, نبك Conj. VIII. to become high, نبر to raise up, to heap up). Figuratively applied to the mouth, as if sprouting out words, Proverbs 10:31.

(2) to increase, to receive increase, Psalms 62:11, compare מַרְבִּית.

Piel נוֹבֵב to cause to germinate, to produce, Zechariah 9:17.
