fech (laqach): Has generally the meaning of "to bring"; it is commonly the translation of Hebrew laqach, "to take" or "lay hold of," Hoph. "to be brought, seized or snatched away" (Gen 18:4, etc.; 27:9, etc.; 42:16; 1 Sam 4:3; 1 Ki 17:10, etc.); twice of nasa', "to lift up" (2 Ch 12:11, the American Standard Revised Version "bare"; Job 36:3); of bo', "to come in" (2 Ch 1:17; Neh 8:15); of `alah, "to cause to come up" (1 Sam 6:21; 7:1); of yatsa', "to cause to come out" (Nu 20:10, the American Standard Revised Version "bring forth"; Jer 26:23), and of a number of other words.
