Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נָסַךְ i.q. סוּךְ (compare No. 3) to pour, to pour out, Isaiah 29:10, specially

(1) in honour of a god, to make a libation, απένδειν, Exodus 30:9; Hosea 9:4. Whence Isaiah 30:1, נְסֹךְ מַסֵּכָה σπένδεσθαι σπονδήν, to make a covenant, because the ancients in making covenants were accustomed to offer libations, (compare Lat. spondere, from σπονδή).

(2) to cast out of metal, Isaiah 40:19, 44:10.

(3) to anoint a king, Psalms 2:6. Compare נְסִיךְ No. 3.

Niphal pass. of No. 3, to be anointed, Proverbs 8:23.

Piel i.q. Kal No. 1, to make a libation, 1 Chronicles 11:18 Syr. Pa. id. In the parallel place, 2 Samuel 23:16 there is Hiph. which is more used in the older Hebrew.

Hiphil id. to pour out (libations), to make a libation, Genesis 35:14; Numbers 28:7; Jeremiah 7:18; Psalms 16:4.

Hophal pass. Exodus 25:29, 37:16.

Derived nouns, מַסֵּכָה No. I. נָסִיךְ, נֶסֶךְ.

II. נָסַךְ i.q. cogn. סָכַךְ.

(1)  to intertwine, to weave, to hedge, i.q. Arab. نسح, hence מַסֶּכָת the warp. From the idea of hedging, fencing, comes

(2) to cover, to protect, Isaiah 25:7. Comp. מַסֵּכָה No. II.
