One of the more well-known appellations in תנ"ך that describes משיח is צמח (Zach 3:8, 6:12; Isaiah 4:2; Jeremiah 23:6), with the English definition a variation of "Branch" (capitalized as refers to his name). Interestingly, there are quite a number of other descriptions in תנ"ך that are highly related and nearly synonymous, all revolving around matters of planting, growing, blossoming, sprouting and so forth.
צמח: The Branch ויצא חטר: A shoot shall grow ונצר משרשיו יפרה: A twig shall sprout from his stock שרש ישי: stock of Jesse ראש יניקותיו: top of the young twigs
I just wanted to know if anyone ever saw any commentary about משיח being associated with "growth" and the like?
I also ask for another specific reason, as follows:
Targum Onkelos renders the Aramaic translation of most variants of the root "משח" as "רב", which is "greatness". Since variants of "רב" can also mean growth, growing, etc (thus a child is called רביא), I wondered if there were any known commentary attempts to associate these facts.
