Hence the saying, فَلَانٌ بَحْرٌ لَا يُنْكَشُ (Ṣ, Ḳ *) † [Such a one is] a sea, or great river, which will not be entirely exhausted, nor will diminish. (Ḳ.)

(Lth, ISd, A, Ḳ; but in [some of] the copies of the Ḳ, فَزِعَ is put by mistake for فَرَغَ, in this explanation. TA.) One says, إِنْتَهَوْا إِلَى عُشْبٍ فَنَكَشُوهُ They came at last to herbage, and consumed it. (Ṣ,* TA.)
