פָּרַט pr. to scatter, to strew (kindred root to פָּרַשׂ, פָּרַד); hence, to scatter words, to boast, to prate (Arab. فرط; with which Abulwalid suitably compares the syn. نثر to scatter; whence نَثَرُ a talkative man, a scatterer of words). Amos 6:5, הַפֹּרְטִים עַל פִּי הַנֶּבֶל “they chatter (sing foolishly) to the sound of the nabel.” Hence
the Week of Proper 22 / Ordinary 27
