נָדִיב m. (from the root נָדַב.
(1) voluntary, willing, spontaneous, ready, 1 Chronicles 28:21 more fully נְדִיב לִבּוֹ “willing of heart,” Exodus 35:5, 22 Exodus 35:22; 2 Chronicles 29:31 (see נָדַב Kal and Hithp.); Psalms 51:14, רוּחַ נְדִיבָה “a ready spirit.”
(2) giving spontaneously, i.e. liberal, Proverbs 19:6 hence
(3) generous, noble (which, indeed, amongst the Orientals is closely connected with liberality in giving), used of character, Isaiah 32:5, Isaiah 32:8; Proverbs 17:7, 26 Proverbs 17:26. It is applied
(4) to nobility of race, and is a subst., a prince, Job 34:18; Psalms 107:40, 113:8 118:9 Proverbs 25:7; 1 Samuel 2:8 used even in a bad sense, a tyrant, Job 21:28; Isaiah 13:2, compare משְׁלִים.-In many of the significations this word agrees with its synonym נָגִיד; but their order is exactly contrary. This word, from the idea of readiness and liberality of mind, which it originally means, has been applied to nobility of race; נָגִיד, from the original idea of a leader and ruler, is applied to those virtues which become a prince.
