Roots

To  QUENC H  is to quiet or surpress something, while the word is now often used to put out a thirst.  It means much like PACIFY, which is also from כבש KaBHaSH, to quell or conquer – see   QUASH.  Suspiciously, there is no Indo-European “root” for QUENCH.  There is only Middle English quenchen and Anglo-Saxon cwencan.

In Genesis1:28  KoBHahSH is rendered "to master" or "subdue."  KeeBOOSH, the noun form, means "conquest."  The Kahf-Bet/Bhet-Shin/Sin root is seen at OVIS, where the quintessentially docile, domesticated or cowed creature is the KeBHeS, lamb.


Branches

Related K-BH terms include  KHoBHahSH (to imprison) and, another guttural-bilabial,  GoBH(ahR) (to conquer).

Reverse K-BH for the Indo-European “root” weik (to conquer, to fight) - the source of (CON)VINCE, EVICT, INVINCIBLE, VANQUISH, VICTOR, VINCIBLE and WIGHT.  Latin vinco,.to conquer, first allows us to see how the Kahf-Bet of Ka(V)aSH was reversed and nasalized (extra N) – the Shin is audible in VANQUISH, but not in INVINCIBLE.  Not surprisingly, Italian vincere is to vanquish.   Kofu is to conquer in Chinese.  In Japanese KVS reverses to seifuku (subjugate, conquer).

KaBHaH is to be QUENCHED or extinguished, when thirst or fire is put out (II Samuel 21:17).  The built-in antonym is Kahf-Vav-Hey, to burn (Isaiah 43:2).

The IE “root” gwes is the given source of ASBESTOS;the root means "to extinguish.                          

See KIBOSH, QUASH and "VICTOR (A).”
