re-kuv'-er: "Recover" has
(1) the transitive meaning of "to retake" or "regain" (anything); and
(2) the intransitive sense of "to regain health" or "become well."
In Judith 14:7 it means "restore to consciousness." In the former sense it is in the Old Testament the translation of natsal, "to snatch away" (Judges 11:26 1 Samuel 30:8, 22; in Hosea 2:9, the Revised Version (British and American) "pluck away"); also of shubh (Qal and Hiphil 1 Samuel 30:19 the King James Version; 2 Samuel 8:3, etc.), and of various other words in single instances. In 2 Kings 5:3, 6, 7, 11, "to restore to health" is 'acaph. In its intransitive sense "recover" is chiefly the translation of chayah, "to live," "revive" (2 Kings 1:2, etc.; Isaiah 38:9, 21). "Recover" appears only twice in the King James Version of the New Testament; Mark 16:18 (for kalos hexousin) and 2 Timothy 2:26 (from ananepho, the Revised Version margin "Greek: `return to soberness' "); but the Revised Version (British and American) has "recover" for "do well" in John 11:12 (sothesetai; margin "Greek: `be saved' "). "Recovering" (of sight) (anablepsis) occurs in Luke 4:18.
