Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מֵרֵעַ masc. (with each Tzere impure), i.q. רֵעַ a friend, a companion; with suffix מֵרֵעֵהוּ Genesis 26:26 plur. מֵרֵעִים Judges 14:20, 15:6 with suffix מֵרֵעֵהוּ for מֵרֵעֵיהוּ Proverbs 19:7. It has the form as if Hiphil of the verb רָעַע, borrowing its signification from the verb רָעָה No. 2, unless it be laid down that מֵרֵעַ is comp. of דֵעַ and מִן (like מִגֹּאֵל, מִצָּעִיר, see מִן No. 3, letter ), and that it only denotes a companion, not a friend, i.q. מְיֻדַּע. This is the only way of explaining the former Tzere being unchanged. [But see Thes. p. 1296.]
