CHERISH

cher'-ish (cakhan; thalpo):

Cakhan, "to act the friend," "to be useful," is translated "cherish" (1 Kings 1:2,4); thalpo, "to warm," "to make warm," "to foster" (Ephesians 5:29), said of the regard the husband should have for his wife, even as his own flesh which he "nourisheth and cherisheth, even as Christ also the church," and in 1 Thessalonians 2:7, of Paul amongst his converts, "as when a nurse cherisheth her own children."
