Near, Nigh


NEAR, NIGH - ner, ni (chiefly qarobh, "to draw near," qarabh; eggus): Used of proximity in place (Gen 19:20; 45:10; Ex 13:17; Ps 22:11; Jn 3:23, etc.), time (Jer 48:16; Ezek 7:7; 30:3; Mk 13:28), or kinship (Lev 21:2; Ruth 3:12), but also employed of moral nearness. Yahweh is "nigh" to them that are of a broken heart (Ps 34:18). God draws nigh to His people, and they to Him (Jas 4:8). The antithesis is God's "farness" from the wicked.
