The verb סבל (sabal) means to bear or carry and that mostly in the sense of servitude (Genesis 49:15) or guilt (Lamentations 5:7). Its derivations are:
- The masculine nouns סבל (sebel) and סבל (sobel), meaning burden or load (1 Kings 11:28, Isaiah 10:27).
- The masculine noun סבל (sabbal), meaning burden-bearer (2 Chronicles 2:1, Nehemiah 4:4).
- The feminine noun סבלה (siblah), meaning burden. This word is used solely in the context of Egypt imposing burden on Israel (Exodus 1:11, 6:6).
- The feminine noun סבלת (sibbolet), presumably an alternate spelling of the regular word שבלת (shibbolet), meaning ears of grain (Judges 12:6), but that's debatable.
