International Standard Bible EncyclopediaSLEEP
slep: Represents many words in Hebrew and Greek. For the noun the most common are shenah, and hupnos; for the verb, yashen, shakhabh, and katheudo. The figurative uses for death (Deuteronomy 31:16, etc.) and sluggishness (Ephesians 5:14, etc.) are very obvious.
(tardemah, verb radham, from a root meaning "to be deaf"): The verb radham has no further meaning than "to be fast asleep" (Judges 4:21 Jonah 1:5), but the King James Version used "deep sleep" as a translation only in Daniel 8:18; Daniel 10:9, where a sleep supernaturally caused (a "trance") is meant compare "dead sleep" in Psalm 76:6). The Revised Version's insertion of deep sleep in place of The King James Version's "fast asleep" in Judges 4:21 is consequently unfortunate. The noun tardemah has the same meaning of "trance" in Genesis 2:21; Genesis 15:12 1 Samuel 26:12; Job 4:13; Job 33:15, but in Proverbs 19:15 Isaiah 29:10, it is used figuratively of torpor. In Acts 20:9 (huipnos bathtus), heavy natural sleep is meant.
