Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נָהַל a root not used in Kal, which appears to have had the signification of flowing and going; like the cogn. נָהַר No. 1; compare נַחַל river. Hence

Piel, נֵהַל, fut. יְנַהֵל

(1) to lead, Exodus 15:13; 2 Chronicles 28:15, וַיְנַהֲלוּם בַּחֲמֹרִים “and they led them borne upon asses.” Specially to lead to water, Psalms 23:2, עַל־מֵי מְנוּחֹת יְנַהֲלֵנִי “he leadeth me beside the still water,” Psalms 31:4; Isaiah 49:10. Hence with the notion of care and protection (Isaiah 51:18)

(2) to guard, 2 Chronicles 32:22 (compare הֵנִיחַ 1 Chronicles 22:18); to provide for, to sustain, Genesis 47:17 compare כִּלְכֵּל verse 12 Genesis 47:12.

Hithpael, to go on, Genesis 33:14. Hence
