לײַבן

There is no definition for this word, nor a reference to view another entry ("see ..."). There is only a phrase using the word.

What is happening here?

It means that this word is generally used only in this idiom. Stutshkov's thesaurus agrees.

But, depending on pronunciation, I wonder if you might be thinking of a different word:

Thanks.

Actually, I was looking up 'layb' (body) in a Peretz story and noticed 'laybn' and looked at it out of curiosity. Am surprised to find its (very) limited usage.
