Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דְּוַי m. (from the root דָּוָה, of the form קְטַל)

(1)  languishing, disease, Psalms 41:4. [Hence used of]

(2) uncleanness, something unclean, causing loathing (see דָּוֶה No. 2 ). Job 6:6, “can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt, or is there taste in the insipid herb?” verse Job 6:7, “My soul refuseth to touch them, הֵמָּה כִּדְוֵי לַחְמִי they are as the loathsome things of my food.” Loathsome insipid food is applied to an intolerable evil. According to a common Oriental figure, one is said to eat, to taste any thing, meaning to experience this or that fortune; comp. אָכַל בַּטּוֹבָה Job 21:25, γεύεσθαι θανάτου, Syr. ܛܥܡ ܡܘܬܙ, Arab. ذاق الموت Koran 3:182, Pers. غم خوردن. to eat cares, i.e. to experience them, عذاب خوردن to eat torments, دوارى خوردن to eat judgment. Comp. in the New Test. κρίμα ἐσθίει, 1 Corinthians 11:29. [But this refers to actually eating the bread.] Some have suggested what is quite inadmissible, that כִּדְוֵי in this passage is put for כְּדֵי so as; for דֵּי is properly constr. st. of the word דַּי satis, enough (which see): much less can it be compared with ذات substance; for this word is properly fem. from ذو, and answers to the Hebrew זֶה, זאֹת. Comp. Allg. Lit. Zeit. 1825, No. 258.
