Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

צִי m. (for צְהִי from the root צָהָה [in Thes. from צָוָה])

(1)  dryness, a dry region, a desert; whence צִיִּי an inhabitant of a desert.

(2) a ship (as if, what is dry, a dry place in the midst of the waters; unless it be preferred to derive צִי from צָוָה with the signification of erecting, setting up; compare צִיּוּן a column), Isaiah 33:21. Plur. צִים Numbers 24:24, and צִיִּים Daniel 11:30 Castell brings forward from the Arabic صَوَاَيةُ small vessel, but in the Kamûs this word is not found.
