Postby Saboi » Sat Jul 21, 2018 7:30 pm

The Septuagint translates this as λάρυγξ (Lárux) and this word also rendered φάρυγξ (Phárux)

In Ancient Hebrew dialect the מ can seemingly change to ב and ל into ר.

מַלְקוֹחַ = מה-לקוֹח = מה-לק-הוּא-ח is from the root לקח LQX, 'take', related to the roots לחך and לקק, and means 'what is taken in war', as in Nu. 31:12
אֶת הַשְּׁבִי וְאֶת הַמַּלְקוֹחַ וְאֶת הַשָּׁלָל
KJV: "the captives, and the prey, and the spoil"

Also from this root: מֶלְקָחַיִם, 'tongs', namely, an instrument with two movable arms joined at one end, for picking up לקחת and holding things, as in Isaiah 6:6
וַיָּעָף אֵלַי אֶחָד מִן הַשְּׂרָפִים וּבְיָדוֹ רִצְפָּה בְּמֶלְקַחַיִם לָקַח מֵעַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ
NIV: "Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar"

Also the the upper and lower movable parts of the mouth made to take לקחת and hold food, as in Ps. 22:16(15)
יָבֵשׁ כַּחֶרֶשׂ כֹּחִי וּלְשׁוֹנִי מֻדְבָּק מַלְקוֹחָי
NIV: "My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth"
KJV: " My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws"

דבק DBQ, 'glue', is a variant of דפק DPQ, 'knock, beat, bang', and also of ספק SPQ, 'clap', ספג SPG, 'absorb', and זוג ZWG, 'pair'.

Indeed, since corn or grain by its nature may be gathered, heaped or piled up, the act צבר is appropriate for it. One may not use צבר for, say one big stone.

The original sense of לקח LQX, as 'raise', is revealed in the התפעל form מתלקחת = מי-את-לקח-את as in Ex. 9:24
וַיְהִי בָרָד וְאֵשׁ מִתְלַקַּחַת בְּתוֹךְ הַבָּרָד
KJV: "So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail"

The word מתלקחת from φλογίζω " to be burnt up, consumed" ( metaphor - of the tongue)
and the Greek word ἐφλόγισεν is used in Numbers 21:14 , metaphor for the winter torrents
of North Levant.
