Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 חִנָּם substantive, used chiefly in the accusative as

adverb (compare Assyrian annáma, in vain, Dl K 7, Proverbs 44; from הֵּן, with aff. םָ֯, which is sometimes found in substantives proper, as סֻלָּם, and proper names, but is more particularly used with substantives applied adverbially, as יוֺמָםאָמְנָם, דּוּמָם, רֵיקָם: Sta§ 203 Ba NB § 216) — literally out of favour; i.e.

a. gratis, gratuitously, for nothing, עָבַד חִנָּם to serve for nought Genesis 29:15; Job 1:9; Isaiah 52:3 to be sold (figurative) for nought Isaiah 52:5; Exodus 21:2,11 יָצָא חִנָּם to go out(from slavery) freely, for nothing, Numbers 11:5 which we used to eat in Egyptian for nought, Jeremiah 22:13; 1 Chronicles 21:24; in the Genitive 2 Samuel 24:24 עֹלוֺת חִנָּם i.e. burnt-offerings which cost nothing (in the "" 1 Chronicles 21:24 the construction is changed).

b. for no purpose, in vain Proverbs 1:17; Malachi 1:10: once אֶל חִנָּם (compare אֶל 7) Ezekiel 6:10.

c. gratuitously, without cause, undeservedly, especially of groundless hostility or attack, 1 Samuel 19:5 לְהָמִית חִנָּם to slay David without cause, 1 Samuel 25:31; Psalm 35:7 (twice in verse); Psalm 109:3; Psalm 119:161 רְדָפוּנִי חִנָּם, Proverbs 1:11; Proverbs 3:30; Proverbs 23:29; Job 2:3 ׳לְבַלְּעוֺ ח Job 9:17; Job 22:6; Ezekiel 14:23; Psalm 35:19; and Psalm 69:5 שׂנְאַי חִנָּם my haters without cause, Lamentations 3:52 אֹיְבַיחִנָּם; in the Genitive 1 Kings 2:31 דְּמֵי חִנָּם blood shed without cause (compare 1 Samuel 25:31), Proverbs 24:28 ׳אֲלתְּֿהִי עֵד חבְּרֵעֶ֑ךָ, Proverbs 26:2 ׳קִלְלַת ח the causeless curse.
