Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

רָדָה fut. apoc. יֵרְדְּ

(1)  to tread (with the feet), e.g. a wine-press, Joel 4:13 followed by בְּ on any person, Psalms 49:15.

(2) to subdue, to rule over, followed by בְּ Genesis 1:28; Leviticus 26:17 and acc. Ezekiel 34:4; Psalms 68:28; Isaiah 14:6 absol. Numbers 24:19; 1 Kings 5:4. Poet. used of ravaging fire, Lamentations 1:13, “from on high he hath sent fire into my bones וַיִּרְדֶּנָּה and it ravageth in them” (compare ܪܕܐܳ of a ravaging fire, Barhebr. p. 216).- Jeremiah 5:31, “the prophets prophesy lies וְהַכֹּהֲנִים יִרְדּוּ עַל־יְדֵיהֶם and the priests rule by their guidance.” In this place רָדָה may be taken in the Syriac sense to teach, a notion which arises from that of correction (compare לָמַד, παιδεύειν), although the priests rarely exercised the office of teachers [which was however part of their duty].

(3) Figuratively, to possess oneself of, to take possession of (as honey from a hive). Judges 14:9. LXX. ἐξεῖλε. Vulg. sumpsit. Ch. נְסַה tore away. The Talmudists use this word for taking bread out of an oven.

[“Piel, i.q. Kal, to break up, to tread upon, Judges 5:15.”]

Hiphil, causat. of No. 2, Isaiah 41:2.
