Is דבקות a verb?
Context "He, she is clinging to God."
It's a noun.
http://www.morfix.co.il/דבקות (שם = noun, 'נ = feminine).
As origumi correctly said, דבקוּת is a noun. But דבקוֹת (note the holam above the letter ו) is a verb, or rather an active participle (it can also serve as an adjective), feminine plural.
She is clinging to God = היא דבקה באל
He is clinging to God = הוא דבק באל
Ah, I was sleepy I guess. To the thread opener: as you can see in so many threads, Hebrew words often have several readings with different meaning, grammatical function, etc. Well, isn't it a lot of fun for Hebrew learners?
