Re: בְּרֻדִּים BRUDIYM Gen. 31:10

By following the more distant relatives of the kindred root pair ברד-פרד we observe the typical diffusion of a pervading and permeating elemental idea into an ever wider circle of root clans, here by the agency of the uniliteral root R signaling multiplicity. Consider ברד, גרד, זרד, חרד, טרד, ירד, מ...

בְּרֻדִּים BRUDIYM Gen. 31:10

We read there וְהִנֵּה הָעַתֻּדִים הָעֹלִים עַל הַצֹּאן עֲקֻדִּים נְקֻדִּים וּבְרֻדִּים NIV: "the male goats mating with the flock were streaked, speckled or spotted." KJV: "and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled." with בְּרֻדִּ...

Re: Jeremiah 25:9

Here is more about חצר XACER (related to חדר XEDER, 'room') Isaiah 42:11 חֲצֵרִים תֵּשֵׁב קֵדָר KJV: "the villages that Kedar doth inhabit" Nehemiah 12:29 כִּי חֲצֵרִים בָּנוּ לָהֶם הַמְשֹׁרֲרִים סְבִיבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם KJV: "for the singers had builded them villages round about Jerusa...

Re: Jeremiah 25:9

Appears to me that this חדר is but a variant to the Hebrew חצר of which חָצֵר XACER, (not directly related to חציר XACIYR, 'hay'), 'yard, courtyard, farm'. Compare German "Hof". See Joshua 19:7-8 עַיִן רִמּוֹן וָעֶתֶר וְעָשָׁן עָרִים אַרְבַּע וְחַצְרֵיהֶן וְכָל הַחֲצֵרִים אֲשֶׁר סְבִיבוֹת ...

גְאָלָהּ of Ps. 69:17-19 (16-18)

We read there עֲנֵנִי יהוה כִּי טוֹב חַסְדֶּךָ כְּרֹב רַחֲמֶיךָ פְּנֵה אֵלָי וְאַל תַּסְתֵּר פָּנֶיךָ מֵעַבְדֶּךָ כִּי צַר לִי מַהֵר עֲנֵנִי קָרְבָה אֶל נַפְשִׁי גְאָלָהּ לְמַעַן אֹיְבַי פְּדֵנִי KJV: "Hear me, O Lord; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of t...

Re: גֵּיחֲזִי GEYXAZIY 2Kings 4:27

And, add to this the real possibility of Gehazi being the actual father of the woman of Shunem's child.

גֵּיחֲזִי GEYXAZIY 2Kings 4:27

It seems to me that גֵּיחֲזִי = גע-היא-אחז-היא , namely, "a poker and a grabber." See 2Kings 4:27 for his rough treatment of the noble woman ( וַיְהִי הַיּוֹם וַיַּעֲבֹר אֱלִישָׁע אֶל שׁוּנֵם וְשָׁם אִשָּׁה גְדוֹלָה וַתַּחֲזֶק בּוֹ לֶאֱכָל-לָחֶם Kings(2) 4:8) of Shunem in her moment of dis...

Re: פצם PCM Ps. 60:4(2)

Related to the biblical קמש is the commonly used post-biblical root כמש KM$, 'wither, shrivel, shrink, wilt'.

Re: פצם PCM Ps. 60:4(2)

Ah, I missed the root קמש QM$, of which קִִמְשוֹן QIM$ON, practically קמצוֹן QIMCON 'compact, clenched, squeezed, gripped, crimped, tight, dry', of Prov. 24:30-31 עַל שְׂדֵה אִישׁ עָצֵל עָבַרְתִּי וְעַל כֶּרֶם אָדָם חֲסַר לֵב וְהִנֵּה עָלָה כֻלּוֹ קִמְּשֹׂנִים כָּסּוּ פָנָיו חֲרֻלִּים וְגֶדֶר אֲבָנָ...

Re: פצם PCM Ps. 60:4(2)

Here is another group of roots, but now with a middle M

אמד, גמד, חמד, למד, עמד, שמד
כמז
חמט, קמט, שמט
חמס, כמס, נמס, עמס
אמץ, גמץ, חמץ, קמץ, שמץ

all appearing to contain the sense of 'heave, swell, pile-up, gather, bump-up'.
