Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּמָל plur. גְּמַלִּים comm. a camel (Genesis 32:16). This word is found in all the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages; and besides, not only in Greek and Latin, but also in Ægypt. (ϫⲁⲙⲟⲩⲗ, ϭⲁⲙⲟⲩⲗ) and Sanscr. under the form kramêla, kramélaka. Bochart (Hieroz. i. p. 75, seq.) and others, derive it from גָּמַל to repay, because the camel is an animal μνησίκακος. It is however, more probable that גָּמַל has adopted the signification of the cognate حمل to carry.
