to be displeased, to regret, to be sorry;
to be afflicted, to grieve;
to compassionate, to pity, to complain;
ցաւէ գլուխ իմ, my head aches, I have a pain in my head, I have the headache;
ցաւեցին ոտք իւր, he suffered from a pain in his foot;
ոչ ումեք ցաւէ ընդ իս, nobody pities me;
ցաւէ ինձ ի վերայ քո, I pity you, I weep for you;
ցաւեաց մեծ վասն իմ, were you sorry for me ? did you feel compassion for me ? աչինչ զաւէր նմա վասն քո, he had no compassion for you.
