Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) i.q. גָּבַע, כָּבַע to be high and rounded at top, as a mound, the head, Arab. قبع to be gibbous; whence קוֹבַע, i.q. כּוֹבַע a helmet, קֻבַּעַת a cup, מִגְבָּעָה tiara. Compare Gr. κυβή. From these nouns, all of which denote things serving to cover, comes

(2) the meaning of hiding (Arab. قبع to hide, as the head in a garment, a flower in its calyx); and hence it is figuratively to deceive, to defraud any one (compare בָּגַד), Malachi 3:8, Malachi 3:9 followed by two acc. to despoil any one of any thing, Proverbs 22:23.
