Old Testament Hebrew Lexical Dictionary
Strong's #6906 - קָבַע
1) (Qal) to rob
1a) meaning dubious
Jeff Benner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
(1) i.q. גָּבַע, כָּבַע to be high and rounded at top, as a mound, the head, Arab. قبع to be gibbous; whence קוֹבַע, i.q. כּוֹבַע a helmet, קֻבַּעַת a cup, מִגְבָּעָה tiara. Compare Gr. κυβή. From these nouns, all of which denote things serving to cover, comes
(2) the meaning of hiding (Arab. قبع to hide, as the head in a garment, a flower in its calyx); and hence it is figuratively to deceive, to defraud any one (compare בָּגַד), Malachi 3:8, Malachi 3:9 followed by two acc. to despoil any one of any thing, Proverbs 22:23.
