Topics Definition of Modern Hebrew Words


By Jeff A. Benner

A קיבוץ (qiybuts/kibbutz) is a collective community in Israel that is traditionally based on agriculture. This word is found once in the Hebrew Bible.

When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee… (KJV, Isaiah 57:13)

This word is derived from the root קבץ (Q.B.Ts, Strong's #6908) and means to gather together. This root word is found many times in the Hebrew Bible and is first found in Genesis 41:35.

And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. (KJV)
