Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָתַק fut. יֶעְתַּק

(1)  to be removed, transferred (Arab. عتق to hasten, IV. to propel quickly). Job 14:18, 18:4. See עַתִּיק No. 1.

(2) to be stricken with age, to become old, Job 21:7 Psal. 6:8, “my countenance becomes old.” (Arab. عَتُقَ to be ancient, old.) Compare עַתִּיק No. 2.-From the idea of removing, taking away, comes that of

(3) to be manumitted, set free (comp. Isaiah 28:9 Arab. عَتَقَ fur. I. عَاتِقُ manumitted, free; عِتْقُ freedom); whence in Hebrew עָתָק is applied in a bad sense to license and impudence.-On the other hand

(4) it is used in a good sense, the idea of freedom being applied to the external appearance worthy of an honourable and noble man. Arab. عِتْقُ a noble countenance, beauty, brightness, عَتِبقُ noble, generous, also, having a clear and delicate skin (like nobles), عتق to be well, to have a clear and delicate skin. Heb. עָתִיק, עָתֵק shining, handsome.


(1) causat, of Kal No. 1, to remove away, to take away, Job 9:5 specially a tent, to break up a camp, Genesis 12:8, 26:22.

(2) to transfer, to transcribe from one book to another; hence i.q. to collect. Proverbs 25:1. LXX. ἐξεγράψαντο. Vulg. transtulerunt. (Talmud. to write out, to transfer.)

(3) to take away. Job 32:15, הֶעְתִּיקוּ מֵהֶם מִלְּים “they took words away from them;” impers, for, words were taken away from them, they could say nothing.
