רָצָה (Arab. رضا, رَضِىَ

(1)  to be delighted with any person or thing (prop., I believe, to delight in the appearance; Germ. gern fehen; see under רָעָה No. 1, 3 ); followed by בְּ Psalms 49:14, 147:10 149:4 Isaiah 42:1 (where, from the preceding context, we must supply בּוֹ); followed by an acc. of pers. and thing, Psalms 102:15; Job 14:6; Jeremiah 14:10. Specially to receive graciously any one bringing gifts, Genesis 33:10; Malachi 1:8 God, the sacrifices and prayers of men, Psalms 51:18; Job 33:26; Ezekiel 20:40 compare Psalms 77:8; Amos 5:22 (where an accus. must be supplied). Followed by עִם of pers.; pregn. to delight in the association of any one, Psalms 50:18; Job 34:9 (comp. רָעָה No. 3). Followed by an inf., Psalms 40:14, רְצֵה לְהַצִּילֵנִי “be pleased to deliver me.” Part. pass. רָצוּי pleasant, agreeable to any one, Deuteronomy 33:24; Esther 10:3.

(2) pass. of Kal No. 2 and Hiphil, to be paid off, Isaiah 40:2.

Piel, to make any one well pleased, i.e. to ask or seek his favour, Job 20:10, “his children shall seek the favour of the poor,” or, what comes much to the same thing, “shall conciliate (or reconcile themselves to) the poor,” by restoring the goods taken from them, compare Arab. رضا II. to conciliate.

Hiphil, to pay, to pay off, i.q. Talmud הִרְצָה (pr. to appease a creditor, compare the Germ. befriedigen, and the obsolete vergnügen, for to pay), Leviticus 26:34, “then the land shall lie waste, and shall pay the sabbaths (she owes).” Compare Kal No. 2 and Niphal.
