Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
רֶגַע regaʻ, reh'-gah; from H7280. a wink (of the eyes), i.e. a very short space of time:—instant, moment, space, suddenly.
רֶ֫גַע noun masculine a moment (Late Hebrew id.;Targum ריגעא Ecclesiastes 9:12: probably properly a movement, i.e. twinkling, of the eye; compare momentum, i.e. movimentum); — absolute ר׳, רָ֑נַע Numbers 16:21 +, plural רְגָעִים; —
a. Psalm 30:6 בְּאַפּוֹ ר׳ a moment (passes) in his anger (opposed to חיים ברצונו); Isaiah 54:7 קָטֹן בְּר׳ during a little moment
b. usually in adverb phrases: —
(a) as adverb accusative,
(α) Exodus 33:5 אֶהָד ר׳ for one moment, so ר׳ alone Isaiah 54:8; repeated Jeremiah 18:7, 9 רֶגַע ֗֗֗ רֶגַע at another moment;... at another moment;
(β) in a moment, suddenly, Psalm 6:11 יָשׁוּבוּ יֵבשׁוּ רָ֑גַע, Jeremiah 4:20; Isaiah 47:9; Job 34:20.
(b) בְּרֶגַע in a moment Job 21:13 שְׁאוֺל יַחַ֫תּוּ ובר׳ (of a quick and painless death; but see Job 34:20; Psalm 73:19: Hoffm Buhl Baer Bu Du [compare Greek Version of the LXX ἐν ἀναπαύσει, Targum בְּמַרְגּוֺעָא] take רֶגַע (or read רְגֹעַ) as substantive [√ II. רָגַע] in tranquility, of a peaceful death). So
(c) כְּר׳ Numbers 16:21 = Numbers 17:10 וַאֲכַלֶּה אֶתֵכֶם כְּרָ֑גַע, Psalm 73:19.
(d) כְּמוֺ ר׳ Lamentations 4:6.
(e) עֲדֵי רָ֑גַע while a moment lasts Job 20:5.
(f) כִּמְעַט ר׳ like the littleness of a moment = for a little moment Isaiah 26:20; Ezra 9:8.
(g) plural לִרְגָעִים by moments, at every moment, Isaiah 27:8; Ezekiel 26:16 וְחָֽרְדוּ ל׳ (so Ezekiel 32:10), Job 7:18 (|| לִבְקָרִים).
