Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מַדְהֵבָה ἅπ. λεγόμ. Isaiah 14:4, if this be the true reading, denom. from Aram. דְּהַב (which see), i.q. זָהָב gold; formed in the manner of a part. Hiph. f., prop. gold making, i.e. exactress of gold, no inapt epithet for Babylonia (parall. נֹגֵשׁ); or heap, storehouse of gold; so that מ formative may indicate place (compare דֹּמֶן dung, מַדְמֵנָה dunghill, Lehrgeb. p. 512, No. 14), but I prefer the former explanation with Kimchi, Aben Ezra, and others.

But most of the ancient versions have taken it differently (LXX. ἐπιοπουδαστής, Syr., Ch., Saad.), and have expressed מַרְהֵבָה oppression, which actually is found in the edition printed at Thessalonica, and which ought, perhaps, to be placed in the text, compare 3, 5, where, in the like manner, the verbs רָהַב and נָגַשׁ answer to one another in parallel members.
