(1) to be cold, to be void of vital warmth. Syr. and Arab. id. The primary idea is that of rigidity; as frigid things are rigid. In Greek πηγ νύω to be rigid, and ῥιγόω; in Latin, pigeo, rigeo, frigeo. Genesis 45:26, וַיָּפָג לִבּוֹ “but his heart was cold,” was not warmed or moved with joy. Figuratively applied to indolence or torpor, Psalms 77:3; Habakkuk 1:4, “the law is torpid.”
Niphal, to be torpid, Psalms 38:9.
