פער

The occurrences of the verb פער (pa'ar) indicate adjunction with strong passion or feeling, usually not very positive (Job 16:10, Isaiah 5:14, Job 29:23), and describe the wide opening of the mouth, hence perhaps alluding to other body cavities. The Psalmist uses this verb in a positive way: a wide opening of the panting "mouth" of someone longing for God's commandments (Psalm 119:131).

Apart from two or three names, this verb has no derivatives.
