Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) prop. to strangle, be in anguish, hence used of cries extorted by very great anguish, or sorrow; Angftgefchren (compare the common anken). Jeremiah 51:52; Ezekiel 26:15. Kindred roots are חָנַק, עָנַק, and those which spring from them, ἄγχι, ἀνάγκη, angere, angustus, enge, Angft, more softened אָנַח, אָנָה, for אָנַהּ. Ch. אֲנַק, Syr, ܐܶܢܰܩ id.

(2) from the idea of strangling (see חָנַק ), has sprung the signification of collar (עֲנָק), to adorn with a collar (see עָנַק ), and of neck عَنَقُ. From its slender neck, a she-goat or kid is called in Arabic عناق, as if long-necked, Langhals; in Hebrew perhaps formerly עֶנֶק, אֶנֶק, comp. عَنَقَ to have a slender neck. From the goat is derived the word for roe אַקּוֹ, which see.

Niphal, i.q. Kal No. 1. Ezekiel 9:4, 24:17, חֶאָנֵק דֹּם, “moan silently,” let no one hear thy moans.
