  1. Liver (organ of the body).
Usage notesEdit
  • Like other words that start with ב,‎ ג,‎ ד,‎ כ,‎ פ,‎ or ת, this term's initial letter takes a dagesh lene. In older texts, that dagesh is usually dropped when the word is preceded, in the same phrase, by a word ending in a mater lectionis; in modern texts, the dagesh is usually preserved even in such a case. Likewise, in older texts, the dagesh is always dropped when the word is prefixed by an indefinite ב־‏,‎ כ־,‎ or ל־‏, or by ו־‏; in modern speech, the dagesh is often preserved in such a case. (After the definite ב־‏,‎ כ־,‎ and ל־‏, and after the prefixes ה־‏,‎ מ־,‎ and ש־‏, there is a dagesh forte, as described in the usage notes for those prefixes.)

Etymology 2Edit

From Proto-Semitic, cognate with Akkadian 𒂂 (kabtu), Ugaritic 𐎋𐎁𐎄 (kbd).

AdjectiveEdit
