International Standard Bible EncyclopediaNEAR, NIGH
ner, ni (chiefly qarobh, "to draw near," qarabh; eggus): Used of proximity in place (Genesis 19:20; Genesis 45:10 Exodus 13:17 Psalm 22:11 John 3:23, etc.), time (Jeremiah 48:16 Ezekiel 7:7; Ezekiel 30:3 Mark 13:28), or kinship (Leviticus 21:2 Ruth 3:12), but also employed of moral nearness. Yahweh is "nigh" to them that are of a broken heart (Psalm 34:18). God draws nigh to His people, and they to Him (James 4:8). The antithesis is God's "farness" from the wicked.
