The verb דלף (dalap) means to drop or drip. It occurs a mere three times in the Bible:
- My eye drips to God. O that a man might plead with God as a man with his neighbor! (Job 16:20).
- My soul drips because of grief; strengthen me according to Thy word (Psalm 119:28).
- Through indolence the rafters sag, and through slackness the house drips (Ecclesiastes 10:18).
This verb comes with one derivative, the masculine noun דלף (delep), meaning a dripping (of rain), and is used only twice:
- The contentions of a wife are a constant dripping (Proverbs 19:13).
- A constant dripping on a day of steady rain and a contentious woman are alike (Proverbs 27:15).
