SNEEZE (זָרַר, H2453). The word is found in 2 Kings 4:35. It is found also in Job 41:18, where a better rendering would be “snortings” and where the KJV has “neesings,” an archaism for “sneezings.” As published in 1611, and for a century and a half after that, the KJV had “neesed” in 2 Kings 4:35, but this was changed to “sneezed” in 1762.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

"The child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes" (2Ki 4:35). "Sneezing," better "snorting," is found in the description of Leviathan (the crocodile): "His sneezings (`atsishah) flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning" (Job 41:18 (Hebrew 10)).

See Neesing.
