Strong’s# 4496


For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which YHWH thy God giveth thee.

Deuteronomy 12:9

The Hebrew verb nu’ahh (Strongs #4496) means “to rest.” The noun form of this word is no’ahh meaning a “resting” and is also the Hebrew form of the name Noah. By adding the “ah” suffix (the feminine ending) and the “m” prefix, a common addition to a root to form another noun, the word menuhhah is formed and means a “resting place” or “place of rest.”
