(1) free-will, readiness of mind (to give); whence בִּנְדָבָה Numbers 15:3 Psalm 54:8 and acc. נְדָבָה Deuteronomy 23:24; Hosea 14:5 freely, with a willing mind. Plur. Psalms 110:3, עַמְּךָ נְדָבוֹת “thy people are willingnesses;” i.e. very prompt for military service [?], abstr. for concr.
(2) a spontaneous offering, Ezra 1:4 (compare verse Ezra 1:7), especially a freewill sacrifice, opp. to one that has been vowed (נֵדֶר); Exodus 35:29; Leviticus 22:23, נְדָבָה תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתוֹ “as a voluntary sacrifice thou mayeat offer it.” One who offers spontaneously, and with a willing mind, is not sparing but gives with a large hand; hence
(3) largeness, abundance, Psalms 68:10, גֶּשֶׁם נְדָבוֹת “abundant, copious rain.”
