Roots

Yet another difficult combination in our given etymologies is BORNE by the word SUFFER. Latin suffero is said to come from sub (beneath) + fero (to bear). To BEAR already means to suffer or endure under the weight of a burden. Similarly,  סבל   SaBHaL means to suffer, endure or bear (Lamentations5:7; Genesis49:15).  See ESPALIER.  סבל $ayBHeL is a physical burden or load; $aBahL is a porter (IKings5:29). SLAVE, now thought to come from Slav, might be a #2-#3 root letter swap of Samekh-Bhet-Lamed /$[V]L.

The Aramaic counterpart is found in the targum or translation ofDeuteronomy1:12, where "how willIbear... the burden" -- (E)SOABHahR.


Branches

$ aBHLaNOOT (patience, tolerance) results from $aBHeR or  SayBHeR (hope, expectation). FOREABARANCE is the theme. METAPHOR and TRANSFER are among the many cognates of BEAR that one finds listed at FERRY. The Indo-European “root” of SUFFER and BEAR is bher (to carry); He’[E]BHeeYR is to bringover or transport.
