Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָבַשׁ ἅπ. λεγόμ. Joel 1:17, used of seed which, by too much heat when under ground, wastes a way, decays, œstu vanescit, to use the term which Pliny has appropriated to this matter (H. N. xiv. 24); Germ. verdummen. With this agrees Ch. עֲפַשׁ prop. to rot, specially used of seeds perishing in the earth (see Buxtorf, Lex. Chald. p. 1642; Bochart, Hieroz. ii. 471). That a word signifying to rot may also be so wide in use as to be applied to seed, œstu vanescens, is shewn by the Gr. πύθομαι, Hesiod. Scut. Herc. 153. Abulwalid compares Arab. عَبِسَ i.e. يبس to dry up.
