רשש

The verb רשש (rashash) means to break down or shatter. It occurs in Syriac with the meaning of to grind.

In the Bible this verb occurs only two times: in Jeremiah 5:17 ("beat down thy fortified cities"), and Malachi 1:4 ("we are beaten down").

There are no derivatives of this verb extant in the Bible.
