1 جَبَرَ جبر , (S, Msb, K, &c.,) aor. جَبُرَ , (Msb,) inf. n. جَبْرٌ (S, A, Msb, K, &c.) and جُبُورٌ, (M, K,) which latter, accord. to MF, is an inf. n. of the intrans. verb only, but it has been heard as an inf. n. of the trans. verb also, (TA,) and جِبَارَةٌ, (Lh, K,) He set a bone; reduced it from a fractured state; (S, A, Msb, K, &c.;) as also ↓ جبّر , (A, IAmb, K,) inf. n. تَجْبِيرٌ; (TA;) and ↓ اجبر , (Ibn-Talhah, MF, TA,) but this is extremely strange, and not found in the lexicons of celebrity, (MF,) and not heard by AO; (TA;) [and ↓ اجتبر .] One says also, يَدَهُجبّر , (A, IAmb,) or جَبَرَهَا, (Msb,) He (a bone-setter) set his arm, or reduced it from a fractured state: (A:) or put upon it the جَبِيرَة [or splints]. (Msb.) ― -b2- Hence, (TA,) جَبَرَ, (AAF, M, K, &c.,) inf. n. جَبْرٌ (S, A, K) and جُبُورٌ [but respecting this latter see above] and جِبَارَةٌ; (K;) and ↓ جبّر , (K,) inf. n. تَجْبِيرٌ; (TA;) and ↓ اجبر ; (Ibn- Talhah, MF, TA; [but respecting this form see above;]) and ↓ اجتبر ; (K;) (tropical:) He restored a man from a state of poverty to wealth, or competence, or sufficiency: (AAF, S, A, K, &c.:) or he benefited a poor man; conferred a benefit, or benefits, upon him: (M, K:) but the former is the more appropriate explanation: (AAF, TA:) and this signification is tropical; (IDrst, MF, TA;) the poor man being likened to one who has a broken bone, and his restoration to wealth, or competence, being likened to the setting of the bone; wherefore he is called فَقِيرٌ, as though the vertebræ of his back were broken: (IDrst, TA:) in the A it is mentioned as proper, not tropical; but the author of the A afterwards mentions جَبَرْتُ فُلَانًا as tropical in the sense of نَعَشْتُهُ (tropical:) [I recovered such a one from his embarrassment, &c.; repaired his broken fortune, or his condition]. (TA.) One says also, جَبَرْتُ فَاقَةَ الرَّجُلِ (tropical:) [I repaired the broken fortune of the man;] I restored the man to wealth, or competence, or sufficiency. (A Heyth, TA.) And جَبَرْتُ اليَتِيمَ (assumed tropical:) [I put the affairs of the orphan into a right, or good, state: or] I gave to the orphan. (Msb.) And جَبَرَ (tropical:) He restored anything to a sound, right, or good, state. (IDrst, TA.) And جَبَرَهُ ا@للّٰهُ (assumed tropical:) [May God render him sound, and strong]: said in relation to a child. (S and K in art. زرع.) And جَبَرْتُ نِصَابَ الزَّكَاةِ بِكَذَا (assumed tropical:) I made the amount of the property equal to that which renders it incumbent on the possessor to pay the poor-rate, by [adding] such a thing: the name of that thing is جبران [app. ↓ جُبْرَانٌ ]: and the person who does this is termed ↓ جَابِرٌ . (Msb.) -A2- جَبَرَ also signifies He compelled, or constrained, another. (B.) You say, جَبَرَهُ عَلَى الأَمْرِ, (Lh, Az, Msb, K,) aor. جَبُرَ , inf. n. جَبْرٌ and جُبُورٌ, (Msb,) a chaste form of the verb, of the dial. of El- Hijáz, (Az, TA,) or of the Benoo-Temeem and of many of the people of El-Hijáz, (Msb,) or of Temeem alone; (Lh, TA;) [but said in the Mgh to be of weak authority;] and ↓ اجبرهُ ; (Th, S, Msb, K, &c.;) both these forms of the verb mentioned by AZ, Fr, A 'Obeyd, and others, (Msb,) but the latter is the form used by the generality of the Arabs, (Lh, TA,) and by the grammarians [in general]; (TA;) He compelled him, against his will, to do the thing: (Lh, Th, Az, S, Msb, K:) ↓ إِِجْبَارٌ originally signifying the inciting, urging, or inducing, another to restore a thing to a sound, right, or good, state. (B.) And عَلَى الحُكْمِاجبرهُ He (a judge) compelled him to submit to, or to perform, the sentence. (L.) -A3- Also جَبَرَ, [aor. جَبُرَ ,] inf. n. جُبُورٌ (S, Msb, K) and جَبْرٌ, (Msb, K,) which latter, accord. to MF [and the Mgh], is an inf. n. of the trans. verb only, but it has been heard as an inf. n. of the intrans. verb also; (TA;) and ↓ انجبر , (T, S, K,) and ↓ اجتبر , (T, S,) and ↓ تجبّر ; (K;) It (a bone) became set, or reduced from a fractured state. (T, S, Msb, K.) ― -b2- And [hence,] the first of these verbs, with the same inf. ns.; (K;) and ↓ اجتبر , (S, * K,) and ↓ انجبر , and ↓ تجبّر , and ↓ استجبر ; (K;) (tropical:) He (a poor man, K, and an orphan, TA) became restored from a state of poverty to wealth, or competence, or sufficiency: (S, * K:) or received a benefit, or benefits: (K:) ↓ اجتبر is syn. with انتعش (tropical:) [he recovered, or became recovered, from his embarrassment, &c.]. (A.) [And (assumed tropical:) It (anything) became restored to a sound, right, or good, state.] El-' Ajjáj has used جَبَرَ transitively and intransitively in the same sentence, saying, “ قَدْ جَبَرَ الدِّينَ الإِِلَاهُ فَجَبَرْ
” [(assumed tropical:) God hath restored the religion to a sound, right, or good, state, and it hath become restored thereto]: (S:) or, accord. to some, the second verb is corroborative of the first; the meaning being, God hath desired, or purposed, to restore the religion, &c., and hath completed its restoration. (B.) 2 جَبَّرَ see 1, in three places. 4 أَجْبَرَ see 1, in five places. -A2- اجبرهُ also signifies He imputed to him [the tenet of] الجَبْر; (S, * L, K; *) he called him a جَبَرِىّ: (L:) like as اكفرهُ signifies “ he imputed to him infidelity. ” (S.) 5 تجبّر أجبر جبر تجبر : see 1, latter part, in two places. Also (tropical:) What had gone from him (a man) returned to him: (K:) or some of his property that had gone from him returned to him. (T, TA.) (assumed tropical:) He (a sick man) became in a good state. (K.) (assumed tropical:) It (a plant, TA, and a tree, K) became green, and put forth leaves (K, TA) and fresh green twigs, when dry: produced fresh shoots in its dry parts: (TA:) it (herbage) became somewhat restored to a good state after having been eaten: (K, * TA:) or grew after having been eaten. (S.) ― -b2- He (a man, S) magnified himself; behaved proudly, haughtily, or insolently. (S, A, K.) -A2- (assumed tropical:) He (a man) obtained wealth, or property: (K:) but Lh explains it as meaning, intransitively, he obtained wealth, or property. (TA.) 7 إِِنْجَبَرَ see 1, latter part, in two places. 8 إِِجْتَبَرَ see 1, in five places. You say also, أَصَابَتْهُ مُصِيبَةٌ لَا يَجْتَبِرُهَا [(assumed tropical:) A calamity befell him from which he will not recover]; i. e. مِنْهَالَا مَجْبَرَ [(assumed tropical:) there is no recovering from it].

[Hence, الجَبْرُ (assumed tropical:) Algebra; more commonly called الجَبْرُ وَالمُقَابَلَةُ perfective addition and compensative subtraction; or restoration and compensation; because of the frequency of these operations in the reduction of equations.] -A2- The contr. of قَدَرٌ: (S, Msb, K:) it is the assertion that God compels his servants, or mankind, to commit acts of disobedience; (Msb;) the virtual denial that actions proceed from man, and attributing them to God; the sect that hold the tenet thus termed asserting that man, with respect to his actions, is like the feather suspended in the air; whereas قَدَرٌ signifies the “ virtual attributing of optional, or voluntary, actions to man; asserting that man creates his own optional, or voluntary, actions: ” (IbrD:) A 'Obeyd says that it is a post-classical term. (S.) -A3- A king; (AA, T, M, K;) of uncertain derivation: (M:) and a slave, or servant: (A 'Obeyd, Kr, K, &c.:) thus bearing two contr. significations: (K:) and a man: (AA, A 'Obeyd, K, &c.:) [see جَبْرَئِيلُ:] and a young man: and [a] courageous [man]. (K.) -A4- [Also, app., Aloes-wood: الجَبْرُ is explained in the K as signifying العُودُ, which means wood in general, as well as aloes-wood in particular; and to this is added in the TA, الذى يُجْبَرُ بِهِ, as though the meaning were the wood with which one sets bones; but I think that يُجْبَرُ is a mistranscription for يُجَمَّرُ; and that the meaning is aloes-wood with which one fumigates.] جَبَرِىٌّ جبر جبرى جبري or جَبْرِىٌّ: see جَبَرِيَّةٌ. جَبَرُوَّةٌ جبر جبروه جبروة and جَبْرُوَّةٌ and جَبَرُوتٌ &c.: see what next follows. جَبَرِيَّةٌ جبري جبريه جبرية (S, K) and جَبْرِيَّةٌ and جِبْرِيَّةٌ and جِبِرِيَّةٌ and ↓ جِبْرِيَآءُ (K) and ↓ جَبَرِيَّآءُ (Aboo-Nasr, TA) and ↓ جَبَرُوَّةٌ (S, K) and ↓ جَبْرُوَّةٌ (K) and ↓ جَبَرُوتٌ (S, Msb, K, one of the forms most known, of the measure فَعَلُوتٌ, like مَلَكُوتٌ and رَهَبُوتٌ and رَغَبُوتٌ and رَحَمُوتٌ, said to be the only other words of this measure, though, as MF says, this requires consideration, TA) and ↓ جُبْرُوتٌ (K) and ↓ جَبْرَؤُوتٌ (Et-Tedmuree, TA) and ↓ جَبَرُوتَى (K, like رَحَمُوتَى, [&c.], TA) and ↓ جَبُّورَةٌ (S, K) and ↓ جَبُّورٌ (Lh, Kr) and ↓ جُبُّورٌ (Lh, TA) and ↓ جُبُورَةٌ and ↓ تَجْبَارٌ , (K,) all inf. ns., (TA,) [or simple substs.,] meaning The quality denoted by the epithet جَبَّارٌ; (K;) i. e. self-magnification, pride, haughtiness, or insolence; or proud, haughty, or insolent, behaviour; (S, Msb, K;) &c.

(A, TA.) -A2- الجَبَرِيَّةُ (S, K) and الجَبْرِيَّةُ, (Th, Msb,) or the latter is a mispronunciation, or is the correct form, (K,) and the former is so pronounced in order to assimilate it to القَدَرِيَّةُ; (Msb, K; *) the latter is the pronunciation of the scholastic theologians of the persuasion of EshSháfi'ee (El-Háfidh in the “ Tabseer, ” B) in old times, but the term used in the conventional language of the modern scholastic theologians is ↓ المُجْبَرَةُ ; (B;) and الجبريّة, also, is a postclassical term; (TA;) The contr. of القَدَرِيَّةُ; (S, K;) the sect who hold the tenet termed جَبْرٌ [q. v.]; (Msb;) a sect of those who follow their own natural desires, whose founder was El- Hoseyn Ibn-Mohammad En-Nejjár El-Basree, who assert that man has no power; that [what are termed] voluntary motions are of the same predicament as a tremour; though this does not oblige them to deny the imposition of duties; (Lb, TA;) a sect who assert that God compels his servants, or mankind, to commit sins: (AHeyth, TA:) n. un. ↓ جَبَرِىٌّ or جَبْرِىٌّ.
