Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אָרָה (1)  to pluck, to pluck off; Germ. rupfen; leaves, Song of Solomon 5:1 grapes from a vine, Psalms 80:13. (Eth. አረየ፡ to pluck off, to gather, ex. gr. fruits, herbs; and አረረ፡ to reap.)

(2) to eat down, by plucking, cropping, in the manner of cattle. Hence אֻרְוָה and אֻרְיָה a manger; Germ. Raufe, from the verb rupfen; אֲרִי a lion, prop. plucking, pulling to pieces; אַרְנֶבֶת a hare, prop. cropping the grass. So also other names of animals are taken from the idea of plucking, or cropping, as גְּדִי, בְּעִיר, גָּזָם, חָםִיל, םָלְעָם, Arab. خَروُفُ a lamb, from خرف to pluck.

(3) to collect, gather (see Eth.); whence אָרוֹן.

II. אָרָה i.q. Arab. أَرَى, أَرِىَ to burn, to inflame; أَرَّ to kindle; kindred to the Hebrew roots חָרָה, חָרַר, and to the western roots areo, ardeo, uro. Hence is אֲרִיאֵל No. 2, hearth of God.
