Re: דבק DBQ, 'cleave', Gen. 34:3

Thinking about דבק DBQ, 'cleave', and דפק DPQ, 'strike', we recall the related ספק SPQ, 'clap', of Lamentations 2:15 סָפְקוּ עָלַיִךְ כַּפַּיִם כָּל עֹבְרֵי דֶרֶךְ שָׁרְקוּ וַיָּנִעוּ רֹאשָׁ, עַל בַּת יְרוּשָׁלִָם KJV: "All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at ...

דבק DBQ, 'cleave', Gen. 34:3

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

‎‫ דבשת גמלים ‬ and דבש תמרים or דבש דבורים are related by the fact that the hump of the camel rises on his back like a honey cake. The דבורה DBORAH, 'bee', is so called not because she lives in the desert, מדבר MI-DBAR, but because she is צבוּרה , collected, in a swarm. Isaac Fried, Boston University

Re: 2 Samuel 22 vs Psalms 18
