Gore

GORE

gor (naghach):

"Gore" occurs only three times in the King James Version, namely, Exodus 21:28,31 bis, "if an ox gore a man or a woman," etc.; in 21:29,32,36, the King James Version has "push" (with his horn), the Revised Version (British and American) "gore." The same verb in Piel and HithpaeI is elsewhere translated "push" and "pushing" (Deuteronomy 33:17, "He shall push the peoples," the Revised Version, margin "gore"; 1 Kings 22:11; Psalms 44:5; Ezekiel 34:21; Daniel 8:4; 11:40, the Revised Version (British and American) "contend," margin "Hebrew push at," as an ox pushes with his horns so should the king fight--a fitting description of warfare).
