Isaiah 57:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

נואשׁ - Fleischer says: "Just as in Arabic 'ml and rj' the meaning of hope springs out of the idea of stretching and drawing out, so do Arabic ayisa and ya'isa (spem deposuit, desperavit) signify literally to draw in, to compress; hence the old Arabic ya'asun equals sillun, consumption, phthisis. And the other old Arabic word waysun, lit., squeezing, res angustae equals fakr wa-faka, want, need, and penury, or in a concrete sense the need, or thing needed, is also related to this."
