Roots

French courbeis a curved object or horse's bit, whence (allegedly) the edging of a sidewalk or pavement. The dictionary offers Latin curvus as the etymon, making CURB a cognate of CURVE. The given Indo-European “root” is sker or ker (to turn, bend).

קער Qee[A]iR is to curve, to be deep as a bowl (Exodus 25:29).  In the case of the Biblical CURB,                  כרכב KaRKoaBH, the word was bound to have been shortened to KRB.

"And thou shalt put it under the ledge round the altar."  - Exodus27:5.

For curvature and turning, note that   כרכב  KaRKoaBH is also a rim, and that כרכב  KeeRKaiBH means "to turn on a lathe."  Ernest Klein writes “of uncertain origin” for  כרכב  KaRKoaBH, yet Kahf-Resh-Kahf means “surround” – see CRANK.


Branches

G HaROOBH can mean "limit;" GHaReBH can mean "the eve of" or "the edge of" (night). Both guttural  (Kahf or Ayin) plus R-B words speak to our other uses of CURB.

G HoBHaR, a #2-#3 letter swap, means crossing over curbs, borders or limits—see OVER.


Bible Verses

Exodus 27:5 ונתתה אתה תחת כרכב המזבח מלמטה והיתה הרשׁת עד חצי המזבח׃
