A primitive root; to melt, i.e. Literally (to soften, flow down, disappear), or figuratively (to fear, faint) -- consume, dissolve, (be) faint(-hearted), melt (away), make soft.
מוּג verb melt (מוּג ᵑ7 Ithpe`el, Psalm 46:7; 107:26; compare Arabic surge (of the sea), Qor 18:99; a wave); **in view of prevailing figurative use, and of Arabic () be in tumult, commotion, of sea, people, be agitated, perplexed, it is perhaps dubious whether melt is original meaning; be moved, agitated is usually possibly, and even Amos 9:13; Psalm 65:11 (both late), where (especially Amos) moistening is suggested, this may be perhaps derived from agitating, loosening, dissolving. —
