Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
רָגַע râgaʻ, raw-gah'; a primitive root; properly, to toss violently and suddenly (the sea with waves, the skin with boils); figuratively (in a favorable manner) to settle, i.e. quiet; specifically, to wink (from the motion of the eye-lids):—break, divide, find ease, be a moment, (cause, give, make to) rest, make suddenly.
STRONGS H7280:
רָגַע verb disturb (Late Hebrew Hiph. move to and fro; perhaps transposed from Arabic bdb092009 disturb, BaES 8); —
Qal Perfect Job 26:12 בְּכֹחוֺ רָגַע הַיָם; Participle construct (Ges65d. 116 g. x), Jeremiah 31:35 = Isaiah 51:15 רֹגַע הַיָם וַיֶהֱמוּ גַלָּיו.
Hiph. denominative from רֶגַע make a twinkling, only 1st person singular Imperfect cohortative וְעַד אִרְגִּ֫יעָה לְשׁוֺן שָׁ֑קֶר and while I would twinkle (= only for a moment: compare Job 20:5) is the false tongue opposed to תִּכּוֺן לָעַד, Proverbs 12:19 (compare De); and כִּי אִרְגִּ֫יעָה. אֲרִיעֶנּוּ מֵעָלֶיתָ I will twinkle and (= I will in a moment, Ges§ 120 g; compare Hi) chase them away from it, Jeremiah 49:19 = Jeremiah 50:44. (Ba§ 86 as substantive = רֶגַע, of the very rare type ’aqtîl; ה-; as Ges§ 90 f.)
† II. רָגַע verb be at rest, repose (probably = Arabic bdb092101 return, properly return to rest, after wanderings, etc.); —
Niph. imperative 2nd person feminine singular Jeremiah 47:6 (of sword) be gathered into thy scabbard, הֵרָֽגְעִי וָדֹ֫מִּי repose, and be still.
Hiph.
a. transitive give rest to; — Infinitive construct Jeremiah 31:2 הָלוֺךְ לְהַרְגִּיעוֺ I will go to give him (Israel) rest, Jeremiah 50:34 לְמַעַן הִרְגִּיעַ אתהֿאדץ (on הִ׳, see Ges§ 53 l DrDeuteronomy 7:24; read probably הַ׳); Isaiah 51:4 ומשׁפטי לאור עמים אַרְגִּיעַ usually I will cause my judgment (religion) to repose as, etc. (i.e. I will establish it; compare שִׂים Isaiah 42:4); but metaphor strange: hence Bachm Che Marti (joining to Isaiah 42:5) צִדְקִי (< אֲקָרֵב Isaiah 46:13) אַרְגִּיעַ אַקְרִיב in a moment (I. רָגַע Hiph.) will I bring near, etc., Du הִרְגִּיעַ קָרֵב, Oort Ry Kit בְּרֶנַע קָרֵב (compare Greek Version of the LXX ἐγγίζει ταχύ).
b. intransitive rest, repose, Deuteronomy 28:65 ובגוים ההם לא תַרְגִּיעַ, Isaiah 34:14 שָׁם הִרְגִּ֫יעָה לִילִית. So Ecclus 36:31.

III. רָגַע verb harden (Ethiopic bdb092102 coagulate, congeal: possibly a special development of √ bdb092103 see II. ר׳); — Job 7:5 רָגַע עוֺרִי וַיִמָּאֵס my skin hardens, and (then) runs again (II. מָאַס), of the ulcers in elephantiasis.
