Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1)  to sink down, to subside (Arab. ساخ Med. Waw, to be sunk into mire, compare שָׁחַח, שָׁחָה). Proverbs 2:18, שָׁ֫חָה אֶל־מָוֶת בֵּיתָהּ “her house (i.e. that of the strange woman) sinks down into Hades.” So the Vulg. But as בַּיִת is constantly elsewhere masc., Aben Ezra applies שָׁ֫חָה to the woman herself, “she sinks down to death (i.e. to Hades, which is to be) her house.”

(2) Metaph. to be bowed down, of the soul. Psalms 44:26, שָׁ֫חָה לְעָפָר נַפְשֵׁנוּ “our soul is bowed down to the dust.” Lamentations 3:20, קרי.

Hiphil, i.q. Kal No. 2. Lamentations 3:20, כתיב.

שׁוּחַ (“pit”), [Shuah], pr.n. of a son of Abraham and Keturah, and of an Arabian tribe sprung from him, Genesis 25:2 whence patron. and gent. שׁוּחִי Shuhite, Job 2:11, 8:1 25:1. The province of the Shuhites I suppose to be the same as Σακκαία of Ptolemy, v. 15, to the east of Batanæa.
