Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [עָבַט] verb denominative take or give a pledge; —

Qal Infinitive construct לַעֲבֹט Deuteronomy 24:10 to take possession of a thing pledged (with accusative of congnate meaning with verb); Imperfect 2 masculine singular give a pledge תַּעֲבֹט Deuteronomy 15:6 (i.e. borrow).

Hiph`il Perfect 2 masculine singular וְהַעֲבַטְתָּ֫ גּוֺיִם רַבִּים Deuteronomy 15:6 and thou shalt cause many nations to give pledges (i.e. lend to them); Imperfect 3 masculine singular suffix + Infinitive absolute הַעֲבֵט תַּעֲבִיטֶנּוּ Deuteronomy 15:8 thou shalt surely lend to him (literally as above).

Pi`el Imperfect יְעַבְּטוּן Joel 2:7 hardly makes sense ( lend on pledge = interchange ?); most read יְעַבְּתוּן; יְעַוְּתוּן We, compare Now Dr GASm; Gr. יַטוּן.

עבל (√ of following; compare possibly Arabic be bulky, stout; Punic proper name עבל Lzb335).
