I might be missing something here so forgive me for asking but wouldn't
[nobHa'],  be "take", "take back" as well as "ungive" rather than "give

If it could mean "give back" how would the following work (assuming it's
correct anyway):

taj nob SuvwI' vaj  taj nobHa' SuvwI'

Can I give to an inanimate object?
e.g. "I give money to the Collection"
