נבה

The root נבה (nabah) isn't used in the Bible, and some scholars assume it once existed because of a few otherwise difficult to explain names. The venerable theologian Gesenius pointed at a comparable verb in Arabic, and that verb means to be prominent or to be high. The Hebrew equivalent probably had a similar meaning, or so it is assumed.
