Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִדְרָשׁ m. (from the root דָּרַשׁ No. 5), a commentary, as often in the Rabbinic. 2 Chronicles 24:27, מִדְרַשׁ סֵפֶר הַמְּלָכִים “the commentary of (or on) the book of the kings,” i.e. an historical commentary containing supplements. 2 Chronicles 13:22. Others suppose that מִדְרָשׁ like the Arab. مِدْرَسُ means any book, but this is incorrect.
