1. always (except dual) as preposition in the interval of, between (so Aramaic בֵּין, & plural בֵּינֵי, bdb010702, bdb010703; bdb010704), as Genesis 15:17 בֵּין הַגְּזָרִים between the pieces, Exodus 13:9 and elsewhere בֵּין עֵינֶיךָ between thy eyes (see עַיִן), Isaiah 22:11 and elsewhere between the two walls (see חוֺמָה), Job 24:11; Job 30:7; Job 40:30 [Job 41:6] part him between merchants; rather more generally among Hosea 13:15; Songs 2:2, 3; Ezekiel 19:2; Ezekiel 31:3; Job 34:37; less exactly within Proverbs 26:13 a lion is בֵּין הָֽרְחֹבוֺת within the board places (compare Proverbs 23:13 בְּתוֺךְ): once with a singular (unusual) Daniel 8:16 בֵּין אוּלַי between the Ulai, i.e. between its banks. When the space separating two distinct objects is to be indicated, this is done...
a. most commonly by repeating בין, as Genesis 13:3 בֵּין בֵּיתְאֵל וּבֵין הָעָ֑י literally in the interval of Bethel, and in the interval of `Ai, i.e. between Bethel and `Ai, Genesis 16:14; Genesis 17:7; Genesis 31:50, 51
b. more rarely by בֵּין ֗֗֗ לְ, Genesis 1:6 dividing בֵּין מַיִם לָמָ֑יִם literally in the interval of waters with reference to waters, i.e. between the waters and the waters,Leviticus 20:25; Leviticus 27:33; Deuteronomy 17:8 (3 times in verse); 2 Samuel 19:36; 1 Kings 3:9; Ezekiel 41:18; Ezekiel 42:20; Ezekiel 44:23 (twice in verse); Jonah 4:11; Malachi 3:18 (twice in verse); 2 Chronicles 14:10.
c. by בֵּין ֗֗֗ וּלְJoel 2:17.
d. by בֵּין ֗֗֗ לְבֵיןIsaiah 59:2. בֵּין is used not only of actual locality, but also with verbs of dividing (figurative) Genesis 1:14; Leviticus 10:10, and of judging, knowing, teaching, etc., if the idea of distinguishing be involved, as Genesis 16:5; 2 Samuel 19:36 הַאֵדַע בֵּין טוֺב לְרָע can I discern between good and evil? 1 Kings 3:9; Jonah 4:11; Genesis 31:49 (watch between), Judges 11:10 (hear), Joshua 22:27 (witness), Isaiah 2:4 and he shall judge (arbitrate) between the nations, Isaiah 5:3; Leviticus 27:33; Ezekiel 44:23; Malachi 3:18; 2 Chronicles 14:10 (see RV); and in other metaphoric applications, as of a covenant or sign between two contracting parties, Genesis 9:12, 15; Exodus 31:13 +; or an oath Genesis 26:28; 2 Samuel 21:7; enmity or strife Genesis 3:15; Genesis 13:7; Deuteronomy 25:1; Proverbs 6:19; peace 1 Kings 5:26 [1 Kings 5:12]; good-will Proverbs 14:9. — It is used of time in the phrase of P בֵּין הָעַרְבַּיִם (see below עֶרֶב), & Nehemiah 5:18 בֵּין עֲשֶׂרֶת יָמִים during the interval of ten days, i.e. every ten days (unusual).
With other prepositions: —
a.אֶלבֵּֿין, after a verb implying motion, in between, in among Ezekiel 31:10, 14. So אֶלבֵּֿינוֺת לְ † ib. Ezekiel 10:2.
b.בְּבֵן Isaiah 44:4 in the midst of, amongst (Greek Version of the LXX Ew Di Che כְּבֵין מַיִם חָצִיר).
c.עַלבֵּֿין nearly as אֶלבֵּֿין Ezekiel 19:11
d.מִבֵּין from between: Genesis 49:10 nor the ruler's staff מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו from between his feet (where, as the king sits in state, he holds it), Exodus 25:22 from between the cherubim (so Numbers 7:89), Hosea 2:4; Zechariah 6:1; Zechariah 9:7; Deuteronomy 28:57 the after-birth הַיּוֺצֵת מִבֵּין רַגְלֶיהָ that cometh forth from between her feet, i.e. from her womb (compare Il. 19. 10 πεσεῖν μετὰ ποσσὶ γυναικός) Repeated 2 Kings 16:14 to specify the two objects from between which a thing is moved. Ezekiel 47:18 is difficult and uncertain: see Commentaries. Less precisely from, the midst of: Numbers 17:2 מִבֵּין הַשְּׂרֵפָה out of the midst of the burning, Psalm 104:12 מִבֵּין עֳפָאִים from amongst the branches they utter their song, Jeremiah 48:45 and a flame מִבֵּין סִיחוֺן from the midst of Sihon (Sihon representing his people: but expression is singular; read perhaps מִבֵּית ס׳, compare Numbers 21:28 מִקִּרְיַת ס׳ : || in both passages מֵחֶשְׁבּוֺן), Ezekiel 37:21.
e.מִבֵּינוֺת לְ from between Ezekiel 10:2, 6 (twice in verse); Ezekiel 10:7.
†2. Dual בֵּנַ֫יִם space between two armies (= Greek μεταίχμιον), [H1143 1 Samuel 17:4, 23] אִישׁ הַבֵּנַיִם man of the μεταίχμιον, i.e. champion (of Goliath).

בֵּית feminine of בַּיִן, בֵּין (NöM 194 f.; Syriac bdb010801 often, PS470) preposition between Ezekiel 41:9b (to be joined with Ezekiel 41:10; see RVm), unless indeed a mere error for בֵּין (which Ezekiel often uses); also Proverbs 8:2 accusative to Greek Version of the LXX (ἀνὰ μέσον) Targum Vulgate Hi Ew§217 g; and Job 8:17 according to Greek Version of the LXX Ew Di1 (Di2undecided).
