STRONGS H1354:
גַּב noun masculine? compare Ezekiel 43:13 (feminineEzekiel 1:18) anything convex, curved, gibbous, e.g. back, chiefly late; — absolute גָּ֑ב Ezekiel 16:24; construct גַּב Ezekiel 43:13 (read גֹּבַהּ Greek Version of the LXX Ew Sm Co); suffix גַּבִּי Psalm 129:3, גַּבֵךְ Ezekiel 16:31, 39; plural construct גַּבֹּת Leviticus 14:9, גַּבֵּי Job 13:12; Job 15:26; suffix גַּבֵּיהֶם 1 Kings 7:33, גַּבֵּהֶם Ezekiel 10:12, גַּבֵּיהֶן Ezekiel 1:18, גַֹּבֹּתָם Ezekiel 1:18; —
1. back, of man (figurative of Israel) Psalm 129:3; apparently of cherubim Ezekiel 10:12, but Hi Sm emend v. so that גּ׳ refers to wheels, rim see 6 below
2. mound, for illicit worship Ezekiel 16:24, 31, 39 (all || רמה); Greek Version of the LXX Vulgate lupanar, brothel, after analogy of fornix, but this without sufficient proof, & needless.
3. boss, or convex projection, of shield Job 15:26 (figurative) he runneth against him... with the stout bosses of his shields (i.e. wicked against י׳); so ظهر in Arabic in similar phrase; compare also Arabic جَوْبً, shield; also French bouclier from boucle.
4. bulwarks, breastworks, figurative for arguments לְגַבֵּי־חֹמֶר גַּבֵּיכֶם Job 13:12 breastworks of clay are your breastworks.
5. brow, only גַּבֹּת עֵינָיו Leviticus 14:9 his eyebrows.
6. rim of wheel, felloe 1 Kings 7:33; Ezekiel 1:18 (twice in verse); so perhaps Ezekiel 10:12 see 1 above — Ezekiel 43:13; elevation, i.e. basement of altar, Da after MT., but see H1363 גֹּבַהּ, compare above.
