אֵ֫בֶה noun [masculine] reed, papyrus (etymology uncertain; = Arabic , Assyrian abu DlW, AGI) אֳנִיּוֺת אֵבֶ֑ה Job 9:26 (craft made of reeds, light & swift, Heliod.Aethiop. X, 460) = כְּלֵיגֹֿמֶא Isaiah 18:2.

II. אבה (perhaps at least formally justified as stem of אָב (construct אֲבִי), so Thes (compare below), but existence & meaning wholly dubious; as real √ BaZMG 1887, 609 ff. Ol§ 123 c; accusative to DlW p. 22 אבה Assyrian abû = decide, אָב = he who decides; Thes (so Rob Ges NöZMG xl, 737 & compare Sta§ 186 and others) makes אָב noun primarily biliteral, imitating infant's speech compare πάππας, pappa, papa (compare Ew§ 106 a); also Assyrian bab JenZA 1886, 404).
