Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָרַק to flee [“to gnaw”]. (Syr. and Arab. عَرِقَ and عَرَقَ id. Kindred is חָרַג.) Job 30:3, צִיָּה עֹרְקִים “they flee into the desert.” But Vulg. rodebant in solitudine, compare Arab. عرق, Syr. ܥܰܪܩܶ to gnaw. And this signification of gnawing is more suitable to the words of Job 30:17, עֹרְקַי לֹא יִשְׁכָּבוּן “those that gnaw me (i.e. pains) are not quiet;” where others interpret, “my arteries (the pulsations of the arteries) are not quiet;” compare عِرْقُ a vein, an artery. [In Thes. to gnaw, is given as the meaning of this verb in both its occurrences.]
