Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

תֵּבָה f. pr. a chest, an ark (Chald. תֵּיבוּתָא; Arab. تَاُبوةُ, تَابُوتُ an ark, a coffer; also Gr. θίβη, θήβη in LXX. intp., taken from the usage of the Orientals); used of the ship which Noah made like a chest or coffer, Genesis 6:14, seq.; of the ark in which Moses, when a child, was exposed, Exodus 2:5. LXX. κιβωτός; Vulg. arca; Luther suitably retained the word Arche, as denoting both a chest and a vessel like one (see Adelung, s. v.). The etymology is unknown.
