Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) i.q. Arab. راد to wander about, to ramble, specially used of beasts which have broken the yoke, and wander freely; also to enquire after, to seek (by running about), Conj. III., IV. to desire, to wish. Hence used of a people who, having, as it were, broken God’s yoke, go on unbridled, Jeremiah 2:31; Hosea 12:1, יְהוּדָה עוֹד רָד עִם־אֵל “Judah acts unreinedly towards God.”

(2) to follow after, like the Ethiop. ረዊድ፡ see מְרוּדִים.

Hiphil, i.q. Kal No. 1, Genesis 27:40, וְהָיָה כַּאֲשֵׁר תָּרִיד וּפָרַקְתָּ עֻלּוֹ מֵעַל צַוָּארֶךָ “and it shall be when thou shalt go free, that thou mayest break his yoke from off thy neck.” Used of one driven up and down by cares and solicitudes, Psalms 55:3.
