A language without the verb "take"?

Hi everybody, just a short and simple thought from the one who usually lurks. ;

What about a language where no verb exists that means "to take"? I am
pondering to render this meaning as "to give oneself". Consequently, I wonder
which languages already do this since there isn't anything that there isn't - so
they say. ;-)
