[עָתֵק] verb move, proceed, advance (Late Hebrew Hiph`il; Assyrian etêku as H., also transitive bring, move; Arabic , precede, pass forth, become free, grow old; Aramaic , עֲתַק grow old, Palmyrene adjective עתק old); —
1 move forward (that is, tent) = proceed Genesis 12:8 (ה מִשָּׁם, locative), 26:22 (מִשָּׁם); so figurative Job 32:16 (see above) words have moved away from them (מֵהֶם), but see probably gloss (Bu and others).
2 Job 9:5 he who removeth mountains.
3 very late Proverbs 25:1 transcribe (remove from one book or roll to another; ᵐ5 ἐξεγράψαντο, ᵑ9 transtulerunt; so in mediaeval Hebrew: ZunzZMG xxv (1871), 447 f. = Ges. Schr. iii. 66 f.).
