עֹרֶף m. the neck of an animal, Leviticus 5:8 (Arabic عُرْفُ mane), of a man, Job 16:12, and so frequently. Observe the phrases

(a) נָתַן עֹרֶף to give the neck, i.e. to turn back, 2 Chronicles 29:6 and פָּנָה עֹרֶף־אֶל to turn the back to any one, i.e. to turn oneself away from any one, Jeremiah 2:27, 32:33.

(b) פָּנָה עֹרֶף Joshua 7:12, and חָפַךְ עֹרֶף Joshua 7:8, to turn the back, i.e. to flee, Syriac ܐܦܰܢܝܺ ܚܰܨܳܐ, and Pers. دشت دادن. Here belongs Exodus 23:27, נָתַתִּי אֶת־כָּל־אֹיְבֶיךָ אֵלֶיךָ עֹרֶף “I have made for thee the back of all thy enemies,” I have made them turn their backs, I have put them to flight. Psal. 18:41.

(c) קְשֵׁח עֹרֶף hard of neck, i.e. obstinate, see קָשֶׁה, compare the Lat. tantis cervicibus est, Cic. Verr. iii. 95.
