Roots

For the first element of CRUCIFIX, see CROSS.  The SUFFIXis from Latin figere (to fasten, fix).    ספח   $aFaK[H] is to join or attach. This term is translated "cleave" in Isaiah14:1, where the friendship of Christians and others is prophesied to be a FIXTURE of the repentant, revived Israel:

"But the Lord will pardon Jacob, and will again choose Israel, and will settle them on their own soil. And strangers shall join them and shall cleave to the House of Jacob."

דבק   DaBHaQ is to attach, glue or join – Genesis 2:24. קבך   QoBHaGH is to fix or drive in, the verb for fastening nails (confirmed in Aramaic-Syriac).

The Torah observant Jew nails a parchment to his doorpost with thids verb. This    ב-ע    Bhet-Ayin form of our bilabial-guttural two-letter root makes painfully clear what the FIX of CRUCIFIXION refers to.  Bilabial-guttural-guttural antonyms (driving apart, instead of pinning together) include  בקע BoQ[A] h  (to cleave, split  -- Genesis 22:3)) and    פקע   PaQ[A]h (to split – see PICK).


Branches

TaK[H]aBH (to insert, stick in) is a BH-KH reversal of the same meaning element.

The given IE “root” for FIX is dhigw (to stick, fix  – see  Hebrew word above.) Other derivatives of Latin figere include AFFIX, ANTEFIX, CRUCIFY, FIBULA, FICHU, FIXATE, FIXITY, IN­FIX, MICROFICHE, PREFIX and TRANSFIX.

Similar to Latin figere (to fasten) is Latin pangere (to fasten). Pangere is a nasalized (extra N) PG term, which is traced by the AHD to the Indo-European “root” pag or pak (to fasten). Another derivative of this root is Old English fegan (to fit closely). The FG and PG words in this entry require a Hebrew  PeY or PHeY to bridge the P and PH(F) sounds.

A reversal of Het-Bhet, the two-letter root of fastening, is also worth comparing to the IE “root” pak (to fasten).

K[H]eBH eDT means fastening, buckle; K[H]eBHeL means a rope or region;  K[H]aBHaQ means to embrace, clasp; K[H]eBHeQ means saddle belt, garter; K[H]aBHaR means to unite, be joined;  K[H]aBHaSH means to bind; K[H]eBHeT means a sandal strap.

The given derivatives of Indo-European pag or pak are APPEASE, COM­PACT, FANG, IMPINGE, PACE, PACIFIC, PACIFY, PAGAN, PAGE, PAGEANT, PAY, PEACE, PEASANT, PECTIN, POLE, TRAVEL and VANG.

For an alternative road to peace, see PEACE.


Bible Verses

Isaiah 14:1 כי ירחם יהוה את־יעקב ובחר עוד בישׂראל והניחם על־אדמתם ונלוה הגר עליהם ונספחו על־בית יעקב׃

“For the LORD will have compassion on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land; and the stranger shall join himself with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.”
