Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כִּלְיָה only in plur. כְּלָיוֹת const. כִּלְיוֹת f.

(1) the kidneys, reins. Exodus 29:13, 22 Exodus 29:22; Job 16:13. חֶלֶב כִּלְיוֹת אֵילִים “the fat of the kidneys of rams,” Isaiah 34:6 comp. Deuteronomy 32:14.

(2) meton, used of the inmost mind, as the seat of the desires and affections. Jeremiah 11:20, בֹּחֵן כְּלָיוֹת וָלֵב “(God) tries the reins and the heart.” Jerem. 17:10 20:12 Psalms 7:10; Job 19:27, בָּלוּ בִלְיוֹתַי “my reins (i.e. my inmost soul) have wasted away.” Psalms 73:21; Proverbs 23:16. Chald. sing. כֻּלְיָא, Arab. كُلْيَةُ, rarely and inaccurately كِلْيَةُ id. Schultens supposed the reins to be so called, because of their being double; compare כִּלְאַיִם, كِلاَُ (which is unsuitable because כלאים signifies rather things diverse in kind, and in Arabic this word is used in sing. dual and plural); Aben Ezra and Bochart considered them to be so called from the idea of desire, longing, comp. Job 19:27, but I do not know why כִּלְיָה should not be simply the fem. of the noun בְּלִי and thus signify properly instrument, vessel (Gefäß), just as physicians call the veins and arteries, vessels.
