Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1)  to bend, to bend aside. (Arabic لاَذَ Conj. I. III. to bend, to incline.)

(2) to turn away, to depart, to go back, Proverbs 3:21.

Niphal, particip. נָלוֹז perverted, i.e. perverse, wicked (compare עָוָה, עָקַשׁ), Proverbs 3:32 Neutr. נָלוֹו perverseness, wickedness, Isaiah 30:12. More fully, Proverbs 14:2, נלוֹז דְּרָכָיו “whose ways are perverse;” and Proverbs 2:15, נְלוֹזִים בְּמַעְגְּלוֹתָם id.

Hiphil, fut. יַלִּיזוּ (inflected in the Chaldee manner, like יַלִּינוּ from לוּן); i.q. Kal, to go away, depart, Proverbs 4:21.

לוּז m.

(1)  the almond tree, Genesis 30:37. (Arab. لُوزُ, لُوزَةُ Syr. ܠܘܽܙܐܳ. Its derivation is hardly to be sought for in the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages. It seems to be softened from the original form, which, in Armenian, is preserved in րՆԳջ engies; Lat. in nux; which, with a different inflection, is found in Hebrew, in אֱגוֹז a nut.)

(2) [Luz], pr.n.

(a) of a town in the tribe of Benjamin, called also from its neighbouring sanctuary בֵּית אֵל [but see Genesis 27:17, for the true reason of this latter name], (see p. 117, A ), Joshua 18:13; Judges 1:23.

(b) another in the country of the Hittites, founded by an inhabitant of the former. Judges 1:26.
