Resting ( מנוחה menuhhah, Strong's #4496): The Hebrew verb nu’ahh [str: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."
