Jeff Benner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
עָדַן a root not used in Kal, which appears to have had the signification of softness, laxity; Arab. غدن V. to be flexible, to vacillate, غَدَنُ softness, laxity, languor, غِدَانُ a cane, or reed, a tall rod (pr. vacillating, vibrating in the air); comp. above עָדִין. Gr. ἀδινός, which Jo. Simonis compares, is plainly not connected with this stock.
Hithpael, pr. to conduct oneself softly, i.e. to live sumptuously, delicately, Nehemiah 9:25.
