Roots

GYPSUM  is the stuff of plaster of Paris.  With no Indo-European “root”,  Latin gypsum is traced to Greek gypsos, chalk, by Webster’s.   EDK cites Arabic jibs, and translates GeBHe$ as mortar, plaster, or gypsum.  While not in the Hebrew Bible. Klein cites the Akkadian, and says the Greek is of Semitic origin.  A semi-liquid, slimy mass of plaster or mortar is precisely what a GOB is.

The Gimel-Bhet sub-root is exactly what a mason might plop between bricks.  GaBHabh is to  heap up – see HEAP at GIBBON.


Branches

The many Gimbel-Bhet words of tallness and height seen at GIBBON  even explain why GeBHeR is a grown man – see BARON and VIRILE.
