Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִשְׁפְּתַיִם dual, Genesis 49:14; Judges 5:16, i.q. שְׁפַתַּיִס Psalms 68:14 folds, pens (open above), in which, in summer, the flocks remained by night; from the root שָׁפַת to put, to place; like stabula (cf. Virg. Georg. iii. 228, c. not. Vossii), a stando, i.q. גְּדֵרוֹת, מִכְלָאוֹת The dual apparently was used by the Hebrews from such pens being divided into two parts, for different kinds of cattle (comp. גְּדֵדוֹתַיִס Joshua 15:36). To lie down amongst the cattle pens, l. l. c. c. a proverbial expression, used of shepherds and husbandmen indulging in ease and rest. Many have followed J. D. Michaëlis in rendering, drinking troughs, from the root سفت to drink; but this has been sufficiently refuted by N. G. Schroeder (in Muntingh on Psalm loc. cit.), who shews that that root is not used of drink in general, but only of what is unwholesome, which does not lessen thirst, but increases it. The true view of this root was long ago given by Job Ludolf, in Lex. Eth. p. 76.
