fut. יִרְבֶּה apoc. יִרֶב and יֵרֶב imp. רְבֵה; plur. רְבוּ; part. רֹבֶה (pret. and inf. are formed from the cognate verb רָבַב).-

(1) to be multiplied, increased, Gen 1:22, 28 9:1 , Exo 1:20 and often; to be many, to be numerous, Psa 139:18.

(2) (a) to become great, 1Sa 14:30 to become greater, Deu 30:16 hence to grow up, Gen 21:20, וַיְהִי רֹבַה קַשָּׁת “and he became, when he grew up, an archer.” Vulg. factusque est juvenis sagittarius.-(b) to be great, Gen 43:34 also to be mighty, Job 33:12 Pro 29:2.

Piel רִבָּה-

(1) to multiply, to increase; with an acc., Jdg 9:29 . Absol. to make much, i.e. to acquire much, to increase one’s substance (compare הִרְבָּה No. 1, d. עָשָׂה No. 2, d). Psa 44:13, לֹא רִבִּיתָ בִּמְחִירֵיהֶם “thou hast not gained much by selling them,” i.e. thou hast sold them for a small price; or, “thou hast not increased,” sc. thy wealth (comp. Pro 22:16).

(2) to bring up, Eze 19:2 Lam 2:22 (Syr. ܪܰܒܝܺ, Arab. رَبَّى id).

Hence inf. absol. הַרְבֵּה is often used for adv. in doing much (more rarely הַרְבֹּות Amo 4:9 Pro 25:27); Ecc 5:11 2Sa 1:4 הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד very much, Neh 2:2 Neh 3:33 also with substantives, 2Sa 8:8, נְחשֶׁת הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד “very much brass.” 2Sa 12:2 1Ki 5:9 Gen 15:1, שְׁכָֽרְךָ הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד “thy reward shall be very much” (exceeding great); with plur. 1Ki 10:11. לְהַרְבֵּה id., Neh 5:18.
