Roots

PENCHANT infers a strong inclination or liking. The etymology shold have stopped with French pencher (to incline), but it goes on to cite Latin pendere (to hang). We naturally incline or point towards that which we desire. PiNeeYaH (inclination, design, motive) is a natural extension of PaNaH (to turn). One cannot literally "turn to" prayers or to other gods, so that the PN turning verbs in IKings8:28 or Deuteronomy31:18 might better be rendered "incline towards" and "venerate."
