Dear List Members:
This root appears only five times in Tanakh, four times as a hiphil verb and once as a hiphil participle in a noun context. Any thoughts on its definition?
I looked up a dictionary and the definition given was to brighten up as in making cheerful, however all the contexts where it is used imply a destructive definition as in being consumed or destroyed.
The root also appears a few times as a name, but those don't help in trying to decypher its definition.
Any thoughts on this word? Peter, any clues from cognate languages?
Karl W. Randolph.
